How’s it going café lovers?
Welcome back to Cards and Cafés! I went to A Thousand Blessing at the end of June (2016) with my good friend Tiana to celebrate both our birthdays. Her birthday is the day before mine and it has become a tradition to celebrate together the day after mine. We decided to try A Thousand Blessings as we’d both heard good things and had seen so many fabulous photos of their food on Instagram.
The café was pretty easy to find and parking was a dream as there are a number of parking spots down both sides of the street right outside the café.
FOOD & DRINKS
A Thousand Blessings has a fantastic menu, with a number of mouth-watering dishes to choose from. They provide their customers with a number of ‘treat yourself’ meals, which any gym junkie would give into.
The following menu photos were taken at the end of June 2016 and might have changed since then.
I ordered a latte and it went down perfectly on that cold Melbourne morning. It was made really well and the coffee had a fantastic rich and creamy flavour, which left a smooth and silky feel in your mouth after every sip.
Coffee rating: 4/5
Tiana ordered a chai latte and thought that it had a good flavour.
Chai rating: 3/5
Both Tiana and I ordered the Loves Feast, which was poached eggs, maple glazed bacon, avocado smashed with ricotta and feta on melted cheesy sourdough.
We both thought that the dish was absolutely delicious!! We both loved the melted cheesy sourdough and thought that it was a great idea to add extra flavour to the sourdough and prevented it from being to dry. We both thought that we’d try they melted cheese idea when we make eggs on toast at home. The avocado mix was fantastic and was well seasoned. I loved having the three different cheeses (ricotta, feta and melted cheese) in this dish and thought they each brought a unique flavour to the dish.
The maple-glazed bacon has an incredible flavour. The natural saltiness from the bacon, mixed with the sweetness of the maple was like a treat sent from the heavens above.
We both would definitely eat this dish again and would highly recommend it to those avo smash lovers out there who want to try a twist on a Melbourne favourite.
ENVIRONMENT & SERVICE
The staff members at A Thousand Blessings have incredibly friendly and helpful. They all greet their customers with a warm smile and a hearty hello.
The café is quite small inside, which makes it cosy and warm. They have a beautiful exposed red brick wall and exposed wooden rafters in the ceiling, which just adds to the character of the café. There is also a number of tables outside which would be the perfect spot to sit during the warmer months or if you’ve brought your four legged fur baby with you.
