Mumma Review

We went to the Village Cafe in Battery Point recently for a spot of brunch one Thursday morning.  On arrival it was very quiet (granted in was only 10am of a weekday morning) and seeing as it smelt heavily like cooked bacon and seemed a bit 'steamy' we assumed they must have been busy cooking breakfast earlier?!?

There was plenty of room for prams and bubs - with seating options both inside and out in the back courtyard.  The boys ran straight to the toy box on arrival but as the place was empty their shrills of delight seemed to echo through our bones!  We opted to re-locate to the back courtyard for a more 'peaceful' brunch setting, although the excitement of seeing a water feature and many small garden pebbles seem to ramp up their morning enthusiasm again...

I opted for the French Toast with maple syrup and bacon whilst Kel had Mushrooms on Toast - both meals were slightly ordinary to be honest and didn't really win us over.  Our coffees were OK, hit the spot caffeine wise but slightly on the watery side and didn't have us wanting more.  The boys enjoyed the strawberry milkshake they shared so that was a plus.

The Village Cafe is certainly in a terrific location on Hampden Road in Battery Point and they have all the baby friendly features we love to see.  But.....all in all the place didn't really inspire us to want to go back.  The staff didn't seem very inspired to see us return though either, so perhaps all is even?!

Have you had a better experience at the Village Cafe?  We would love for you to share your thoughts....?
