Miss Polly (Mitcham) 6.5/10

Hiya café lovers!

IMG_2338Welcome back to Cards and Cafés! Hope you are ready to come on another food adventure with me. I recently went to Miss Polly with my good friend Beth for our weekly breakfast catch up. As we live in the area we thought that we’d try a café in Mitcham for a change. I came across Miss Polly a few months ago when I was at the Coles next to the café and just knew I had to add it to my list.

As this café is in the same shopping complex as Coles there is plenty of parking, so you should almost always find a spot. We arrived at Miss Polly quite early and managed to easily find a seat. As the morning went on it began to get quite busy.

FOOD & DRINKS 

Miss Polly has a fantastic menu, with a great selection of both sweet and savoury meals to choose from.

The following menu photos were taken in July 2016 and might have changed since then.

I ordered a latte and thought that it was ok. It wasn’t the best coffee I’ve ever had nor was it the worst. It had an average flavour and wasn’t as creamy and smooth as I usually like to have my coffee.

Coffee rating: 3/5   3 out of 5

Beth ordered a chai latte and she thought that it was a little weaker than she usually would like it. She said that she had to give it a good stir before she could drink.

Beth ordered the French toast with spiced pear, strawberries, macadamia crumbles and vanilla mascarpone. We both thought that it looked fantastic when it arrived to the table. The bright colours from the fruit looked incredible against the white plate and the golden brown of the French toast.

Beth felt that the French toast itself was a bit too moist and soggy for her liking. This could be due to the extra juice from the strawberries, which soaked into the toast before it arrived to the table. She said that maybe the berries juices could be put in a little jug on the side and added later.

But she did enjoy the fruit and thought that they added a great flavour to the dish.

I ordered the hazelnut buttermilk pancake with mixed seeds and nuts, berries, chia seed maple syrup and whipped citrus cream. I thought that the pancakes were really tasty. They were light and fluffy and they had a fantastic flavour. I thought that the whipped citrus cream was delicious and it was something really different. I’d never had anything like it and I thought that it added an interesting flavour to this dish.

The maple syrup was great and the citrus cream helped to break its sweetness.

It was quite rich and I struggled to finish, but I really enjoyed the meal and would order it again.

ENVIRONMENT & SERVICE 

IMG_2318Miss Polly was very simple inside but it was very clean and had a very welcoming atmosphere. We both loved the blue and yellow pepper grinders on the tables, which added a nice splash of colour.

There are a number of tables inside the café and quite a few outside, which would be great during the warmer months.

The employees were all really friendly and welcoming, but the service was a little slow. But this is a great little local café for those living in the Mitcham area and a great place to go before you do your weekly shopping at Coles.
