Greetings café lovers!
Welcome back to Cards and Cafés! I recently went to The Pour Kids with one of my high school friends Emily. She had been to this café in the past and when she heard I wanted to go she said that she would take me as she really enjoyed it.
We went on a Tuesday morning and found it quite busy when we arrived. We managed to find a table as found that the place suddenly became quite. We must have arrived, as the brunch rush was finishing.
We sat and waited for at least 10 minutes before anyone brought us a menu and even longer than that before some took our coffee order and meal order.
FOOD & DRINKS
When the menu finally arrived, we both sat there a while trying to decide what we wanted to order. There were a number of delicious sounding meals to choose from.
I loved the unique names that were given to each meal; I felt that these names gave each meal some excitement and character. Let’s be honest reading names such as eggs on toast or porridge can be boring. But when you read/see names such as three bears outs hunting or let’s talk about Kevin (Bacon) you are automatically drawn to them.
The following menu photos were taken at the end of June 2016 and might have changed.
I ordered a latte as I usually do when I go out and I thought that it was a pretty good coffee. It was relatively hot when it arrived and had a nice rich flavour. I later found out that they use the Axil blend, which is one of my favourites so no would I liked it so much.
Coffee rating: 4/5
Emily ordered the ‘We need to talk about Kevin (Bacon)’, which was scrambled eggs with goats curd, spicy maple glazed thick cut bacon and pickled apple served on sourdough toast. But as she is gluten intolerant she substituted the sourdough for gluten free toast.
She’d had this breakfast the last time she came to The Pour Kids and really enjoyed it. She wanted to see if it was just as tasty as the last time and she wasn’t disappointed. She loved the maple-glazed bacon and definitely thought that it was the hero of the dish. She said that it was one of the tastiest bits of bacon she’d ever had and would definitely eat it again and recommend it to others.
She thought that the goats curd added an interesting flavour and thought that it was something quite different. She thought that it was a fantastic flavour combination with the scrambled eggs, by adding a depth of flavour and extra richness that she couldn’t even dream of.
I ordered the Stacks On! Which was a stack of grilled chorizo sausage, hash brown, guacamole, sour cream and roasted corn relish and an added poached egg.
I thought that it was really delicious! The hash brown was so crispy and the crunch went perfectly with the smoothness of the guacamole. I don’t normally eat chorizo sausages, but I thought that they were great! They added an extra richness to the dish and added an interesting flavour and helped to make the dish even tastier.
The poached egg was cooked perfectly! I love cutting into a poached egg and seeing the egg yolk run across the plate, which is exactly what this egg did.
I would definitely eat this dish again and would recommend it to anyone who is a fan of chorizo sausages or if you want a different take on the old avocado smash.
ENVIRONMENT & SERVICE
The Pour Kids was pretty easy to find and parking was pretty easy as it’s right next to a super market.
As I said earlier we got there and there were a number of people just finishing off their food and coffee and before we knew it they all left and we were one of the only people left. We felt that the service was very slow as it took at least 10 minutes for us to receive a menu and even longer for our coffee and food order to be taken.
With that the kitchen service was also quite slow, as we were one of the only tables left after the busy brunch rush we thought that it would have been a lot quicker than it was.
There are quite a number of tables at The Pour Kids and they have these lovely bright colour pictures on the wall which just adds character and warmth into this café.
