So and friend and I discovered Brewristas (73 Glebe Point Rd, Glebe NSW 2037) off a photo on Instagram (classic) and decided to try it out since it’s located on Glebe Point Rd, which is around a 3-5 minute bus ride + walk(add another 2 or so minutes for walking) from uni.
Upon entering the cafe, we were greeted from behind the counter and then greeted again by a different staff member (who looked really busy carrying dishes/attending to customers but still greeted us).
The menus are printed on plain thick paper in a simple layout which is refreshing from the whole menus on clipboard trend. Did anyone notice the elements that cafes and eateries tried to change to differentiate themselves from other places during the peak of the ‘hipster cafe aesthetic experience’ – in particular the menus on clipboard, nonconforming, nontraditional substitutes for plates as well as seating.
Side note: I really like this tea cup! It’s more of a cool toned pastel blue in real life.
When I took a bite, I expected this avocado dish to taste the same as the other 1837687123 avocado dishes I’ve tasted but surprisingly there was a subtle but noticeable level of asian spice (probably the orange dressing sauce as seen in the image). The avocado tasted like avocado, the goats cheese tasted like goats cheese etc- however when all of these ingredients are eaten together with the two dressing sauces, an interestingly layered flavour is achieved.
Occasionally, I eat at a cafe that offers a scarce amount of cheese in avocado dishes that involve cheese (my definition of scarce is when the cheese cannot be paired in a roughly even ratio with the avocado, bread and accompanying ingredients). Hence, I was not expecting the large portion of goats cheese (I didn’t end up finishing it as the cheese: avocado was too uneven).
Brewristas also offers salted caramel milkshakes in their cold shakes section but I think I need to take a break from salted caramel milkshakes cos I tend to feel bloated quicker from drinking salted caramel milkshakes as opposed to chocolate ones – I don’t know why??
Side note: Brainwave (732 Harris St, Ultimo NSW 2007) makes really thick and rich salted caramel milkshakes. They also sell this blended coconut drink which includes shredded coconut throughout – I haven’t been anywhere else that sells a coconut drink like this yet.
Food was great and staff were real attentive and nice. I’d definitely come back here again (and try out different dishes on the menu).
