The Verdict

Open for breakfast and lunch, Barista & Cook is a Waterloo café with healthy comfort food at its core. Lunch is salads packed with edamame, miso, black rice, fennel and marinated chickpeas while breakfast favourites are smoked trout kedgeree with spiced rice, boiled eggs, citrus yoghurt and coriander or the gilled mac‘n’cheese toastie (okay, maybe that last one isn't so healthy).

The décor is industrial comfort (if that’s a real thing) with exposed brick walls, cosy booth seating and a large steel communal table dominating the centre of the café. And with an ethos we can live by, coffee is king at Barista & Cook with more options than we even knew existed; espresso, cold drip, V60 pourover and chemex. Whew!
