Circa Cafe, Parramatta

  19 August 2011

OH HAI! You know what’s awesome after a big night out on the town? Rolling outta bed and hitting your fav local cafe for some breakfast. After hearing about Circa Cafe (21 Wentworth St, Parramatta) here and here I knew I had to drag myself and the boy over quick smart. It’s less than a 2min walk from Parra station and while they’re open all week for coffee and lunch, the brunch menu is only available on Saturdays till 1pm edit: 3pm.

The place is tiny! Step past the humans perched on wooden stools out the front and pretty much you’re inside. Circa feels like it’s been transported from Melbourne and hits all the checkmarks- eclectic fitout with crazy graffiti murals inside and out, super friendly and uber trendy staff, delicious coffee and a laid back vibe.

The menu is posted on butchers paper at the entrance with the daily specials scrawled in texta on the tiles. Check it out yo nothing’s over 8 freaking bucks!

But first some coffee. Ain’t she pretty?

French Toast with poached rhubarb, labne and pistachio ($7) is the most perfect french toast I have ever eaten. It was so crazy delicious that I hesitated when offering Noods a bite. I reckon it’s the first time I’ve eaten french toast without feeling the urge to drown it in maple syrup. The fat slice of bread is slightly toasty on the edges but with buttery, eggy innards and truly it does not need the toppings that’s how delicious it was. But no worries I still demolished the splodge of labne and sweet rhubarb strips with ease.

I suffer from food envy when Noods’ Baked eggs with sucuk, tomato, danish feta and chili ($7) arrives. The eggs are glorious, a stab and the golden innards are released to bathe the nubbins of sausage and tomato in deliciousness.

We couldn’t resist ordering the Field mushrooms on toast with hommus, parsley and red onion ($6) after watching panfuls of mushrooms being slowly, lovingly cooked in steady batches all morning. The mushrooms are freaking incredible and even though we’re stuffed full and have to sadly leave the bread behind there was no way I was leaving any mushroom remnants.

If you’re in the hood get yourself there now! I’ll be the one looking a little worse for wear heh have an awesome weekend guys!
