The Brunch Diaries TWO

Easter weekend meant that we had a little bit of extra time on our hands... so we thought why not seize the opportunity and head to another little spot we had been meaning to visit, and throw in a little brunch diaries post at the same time!

We headed to John Gorilla, another little cafe just up the road from our little house. Talk about the cutest little spot. Old rulers make up the counter, and there are the sweetest little niknaks and some absolutely delicious looking cupcakes and take away treats. We were greeted by a sweet lady with a big smile and shown to a little table in the other room. The music that was playing was perfect, a good mix of old classics and some newer alternative tunes, I am pretty sure Robbie Williams also got a sneak in there. Greg ordered a flat white and the french toast [he loves his french toast] and I ordered a super naughty iced chocolate and a BLAT.

The coffee was tasty, not quite hot enough, but pretty decent. Gregs verdict was that the franch toast was tasty but the blueberry compote was sort of more just like slightly cooked whole blueberries and the Lemon curd was super sweet. My ice chocolate was a little bit disappointed. It was basically a glass of milk with a squirt of chocolate sauce and a small scoop of icecream. The first sip I took was straight milk, but after mixing it to death it was a bit better. My BLAT was tasty, although the side salad was twice as big as the sandwich, so I definitely wasn't full afterwards, and for the price, it was probably a little on the more expensive side for what we ordered.

Overall, it was a little pricey, but the atmosphere was nice, and the staff were friendly. Would we go back? Maybe if we were looking for something close to home.
