So, I realise that I haven’t posted for quite some time now, and frankly I’m appalled at my lack of writing and eating! But work is a real thing people.
I am, however, feeling back to my old self having just stepped out for brunch.
Today I visited Croft&Co. A sweet, woody coffee shop in Parkview. It’s situated on Tyrone Street betwixt and between the strip mall that is situated here…which is really stunning by the way. Full of old fashioned shops and boutiques, as well as more eateries.
Anyway, back to Croft. It was really lovely, but nothing too special. The menu was fairly basic, only offering breakfasts made up of egg, bacon, tomato and mushroom, oh and Portuguese bread called bolo do caco.
They also had toasted sandwiches, salads and little light lunches like pregos and burgers.
So again, it was really nice, but no new exciting flavour combinations or ingredients. And my affaires need to have a little more spice than that.
I stuck to basics and had bacon and eggs. The bacon was really yummy, but then again, when is bacon ever not good?? The eggs were also nice. I had an orange juice..it wasn’t freshly squeezed, but it was so delish! Fresh, cold, sweet and sour…wowza!
The staff were an absolute delight. They were friendly, kind, attentive and patient. That definitely improved my experience.
All in all, my affaire with Croft was rather enjoyable, but they’ll have to up the menu a little to make it really exciting for next time. I’ll certainly be returning.
