I’ve only heard positive things about A Bite to Eat in Chifley, so I was keen to check it out for myself and put it to the test.
The cafe is boho meets my grandmother. The furniture is a mish-mash of retro and vintage with couches, tables and a very lovely out door area.
My friend and I took a seat outside and waited for a menu. I’ll forgive the waitress as she may be new but her first question to us was ‘do you guys have menus?’ A quick glance at our table would have answered her question before she asked it, but we’ll let that one slide.
She took our coffee order while we settled in on the menu. It’s a really good menu, it had your classics but then it also had some really good alternatives for people who like to mix it up and try something different. I went with a baked egg dish with lamb sausage and feta, something I’ve never tried before.
A different waitress took our food order at which point we asked for a bottle of water for the table, we were directed to get it ourself. I know this kind of thing is a personal preference but given the cafe was not busy at all it would have been that extra bit of customer service they could have given without it stretching them.
Our meals arrived in 10 minutes and we dug in! My dish was good, exactly as it was described with a nice big bit of bread with butter. Utterly delicious, I’d happily go back and have that meal. The coffee was also good, decent strength and really round with no bitter after taste.
I’ve been told that if you do plan on checking it out on the weekend you better book! It’s super popular with the locals and walking in to get a table is next to impossible.
