Eat Out: The Hardware Cafe


Is that a new cafe in my hood?  More like a whole LOAD of cafes in my hood, which suits me and my caffeinated beverage habit.  Huzzah for the people of Scarborough.  Topping the list of hot-new-cafes has got to be The Hardware Cafe, which is located in an old - wait for it - hardware store!  Since it opened, this place has been almost as busy as Ikea on a Saturday and the parking similarly hellish, but our verdict?  Definitely worth the trip.

T - buckwheat pancakes & apple juice
S - muesli & a flat white

Aren't we such healthy little vegimites?

Apart from the part where S struggled to get her muesli out of the jar's little opening, we give this cafe a thumbs up & recommend you visit.  Perhaps try a weekday or wait until the initial hype dies down (if it does), as we only just got a table for two on a humble Tuesday morning.
