Temperance Society (Hughesdale) 8.5/10

Hi Café Lovers!

Welcome to Cards and Cafés!

I had heard so much about Temperance Society and had seen so many photos of their food on social media, that I had to go and visit it and see what all the hype was about. I was not disappointed, and I loved my experience at this café and would definitely go back.

My friend Beth and I were lucky in that we didn’t have to wait for a table, but we had to sit outside under the outdoor heaters.

There is plenty of parking along the street outside the café, so I don’t think you’ll have a problem finding a spot. There are quite a few permit zone sections, so just beware and ensure you read the signs properly.

FOOD & DRINKS 

We both liked the menu and thought that they had a good selection of dishes to choose from and also have a wide range of dishes for vegan diets.

I ordered a cappuccino and was excited that it came to the table nice and hot and arrived within 5 minutes of ordering it. The flavour was great, and it had a thick and creamy consistency.

Coffee rating: 4/5

For breakfast, Beth ordered the Chilli Scrambled Eggs, with coriander, bacon, cherry tomatoes, mint, fried shallots and parmesan on sourdough.

The eggs were cooked well, and the flavours were well balanced. But we weren’t sure where the cherry tomatoes were, but they weren’t really missed. The bacon added some extra flavour and together with the parmesan gave the dish an additional richness.

I ordered the Orange Blossom Hotcakes with strawberries, dates, ricotta, vanilla bean mascarpone, mango and raw fruit confetti with butterscotch sauce.

This dish was plated so beautifully!

The fresh fruit added pops of colour and it definitely looked like confetti on the plate. The hotcakes were cooked perfectly with their soft and fluffy insides and a slight crunch on the outside. The butterscotch sauce was delicious but quite sweet so if you’re not a sweet tooth then you might not enjoy this meal.

I would definitely order this dish again.

ENVIRONMENT & SERVICE

The staff at Temperance Society are fantastic! They made us feel so welcome as they greeted us with warm smiles at the door. Service was great as we received our meals and I got my coffee quicker than I thought we would.

The atmosphere is very relaxed, and we enjoyed sitting outside under the outdoor heaters.

The courtyard area is beautiful and I’m sure that’s the place to sit during the warmer months.
