Rubix (Box Hill) 8/10

Hi howdy hello fellow cafe lovers!

Welcome back to Cards and Cafés. I while back I visited a café in Box Hill with one of my good friends Tiana. She had been recommended this place by one of her customers and she invited me along to come and try it out.

I have to admit from the outside this café doesn’t look overly exciting, but once inside that is a whole different story. The exposed brick around the café gives you that industrial feel and this seems to be a huge trend in cafés around Melbourne. The exposed bricks give the impression that this is a really hipster hangout spot and gives you the feeling that they know how to make a good coffee.


So today I decided to try something different.  I had heard so much about the matcha latte and thought I’d be brave and see what all the fuss was about. When it first arrived I thought that it had such a beautiful colour. The pale green colour was so different and it made me super excited to try it.

After having a few sips, I have to be honest and say it was the most disgusting thing I’ve ever had. It tasted like dirt and grass! I was so disappointed and regretted my choice and wished I had just ordered a regular coffee.

Both Tiana and I agreed that we would never order it again, but we were proud of ourselves for trying something different.

Coffee rating: 1/5    1 out of 5

Rubix Matcha Latte
Matcha Latte ($3.90) (100% organic green tea powder)


I ordered the smashed avocado, which was served with two poached eggs, cherry tomatoes and pumpkin bread. I was so surprised how big the serving was. I was super excited to sink my teeth into this meal as I was craving avo and lets face it, eggs always taste better when someone else has cooked them.

The meal was amazing; the crunch of the pumpkin toast (which was tasty and so different) against the soft creaminess of the avo was the perfect combination.

Rubix Breakfast

Tiana ordered her favourite breakfast, which was the eggs benedict with a serving of crunchy bacon and a hash brown. Once again we were both surprised by the serving size, as they were very generous. The eggs benedict came with homemade apple cider hollandaise sauce. Tiana said that it was absolutely delicious and wished she could take some home with her. She was happy that she ordered a side of bacon as she said that the saltiness of the bacon helped to balance the creaminess of the hollandaise sauce, ensuing that the richness didn’t make her feel sick.

Inside there are quite a number of tables, so I’m sure you’ll always find a seat.

The staff are very friendly and helpful and are happy to answer any questions. The only annoying thing about this place is that you have to order at the counter. I honesty prefer table service, this way you can order another cup of coffee without having to get up.
