The Usual Cafe review

Hey everyone, 

A week ago, I was in Cabramatta (for the first time) to complete a task for uni and my friend recommended me this brunch place. The Usual Cafe’s located at 8/46 Hill St, Cabramatta NSW 2166, almost hidden in this laneway filled with random health and similar retail stores.

2 out of the 4 walls of the store are glass windows but you don’t really notice the interior till you walk in – somewhat a minimalist blend amongst the immediate associations linked with a greenhouse(greenery), a bathroom(tiling and tessellation) and a kitchen(tiling).

Mint x Pineapple x Coconut | Mint x Lychee x Coconut $7 each
Avo dish $11
Friend’s dish: Avo dish with smoked salmon

Overall comments

The Usual Cafe definitely is a budget friendly brunch place – the drinks are standard priced but they’re refreshingly different than the usual drinks served in most cafes around the CBD Glebe and Surry Hills areas which usually consist of freshly pressed juices, freshly squeezed juices, fresh juices, iced sweet milky drinks and coffee. The food is fresh and portions are generous. The dressing on the avo on toast was interesting – what’s interesting is that as different eateries employ their own twist on the classic avo dish, this effort also translates into the dressing and I don’t think I’ve tasted any two dressings that taste the same.  I’d definitely revisit if the travel time to Cabramatta wasn’t 1.5 hours one way. The only negative with The Usual Cafe is that the menu is kind of compact and not as expansive as other brunch places.
