After being left with a pretty bad impression of Cafe Gaudi, I was determined to find a decent cafe spot in Westfield Woden. While I understand Caffe Cherry Beans is a franchise, it’s still employing local people and if they can provide a better breakfast option than the local cafe in the same centre, who am I to judge how it’s owned?
I’ve been to Caffe Cherry Beans before for lunch, but decided to test out the breakfast menu. It’s very short with not a lot of options, I was also disappointed the only omelette option was ‘cheesy’. With the limited menu I went with eggs benedict with ham and a side of mushrooms.
For parents this is a great breaky spot, right next to it is a kids playground to entertain your little ones while you indulge. I happened to go with a friend and her two small kids and they loved the playground and it allowed us time to eat and have a chat while they were entertained.
Our drinks came before our meals, which came fairly quickly (within about 10-15 minutes). The eggs benedict was delicious, the right amount of sauce, a decent amount of mushrooms and with my coffee it was all under $20!
I know some people avoid cafes like this because it’s not ‘local’, however when you’re only option is a bad cafe, I’d rather put my money into a business who has their sh$t together.
Have you been? What did you think?
