It is beyond marvellous when you find somewhere that's flown a little under the radar, and turns out to be a real gem of a place—one with a much-deserved loyal and, some might say, cult-like following. Enter our latest discovery, The West End Coffee House.
Sitting just off the intersections of Vulture and Boundary Streets, no matter the time, you'll find this West End favourite filled with patrons. From the cool creatives lining up, Keep Cups in hand for their first brew, to the long-time locals who have settled in and are set to discuss the news of the day - it's all sorts that gather to enjoy this West End hotspot.
Great coffee made on Campos beans aside, the service is young and friendly, there are several sweets to savour, and a menu, of both classic and Asian flavours, that's not only well priced, but packed with delicious options.
In the early hours the breakfast special is always special (we had pork belly with lentils!) and you'll also find options such as haloumi, grilled golden with solid servings of avocado on toast. Yum.
The fit-out is paired back, and mixed, meaning tables for two, a high seat at a bench for one, or a larger communal table to house a crowd.
