Circa also known as the only hipster Cafe outside of the inner west of Sydney. It’s just 2 minutes walk from the Parramatta Station however limited seating does limit the number of customers unless you are ok with a street table. If you do bring your sunnies and sun-block, it’s in direct sunlight.
OTTOMAN EGGS $17
Poached free range eggs with crumbed eggplant, garlic labne, burnt chilli & sage served with a sourdough seeded baguette
Quite a unique take on eggs. Poached eggs were slightly overcooked, meaning less yolk porn that there should have been. I’m just a fan of fried eggplant, it brought back memories of that street food back home. However, overall was a well balanced dish, although will not fill you up, very small portion indeed.
BACON AND EGG ROLL SPECIAL
Probably one of the best bacon and egg roll I’ve ever had. The bacon strips were flash fried to a soft texture. The x factor was those crispy bacon bits bringing texture, flavour and saltiness to the roll. The rest of the ingredients were faultless.
FRENCH TOAST $15
French toast with poached rhubarb, brulee banana, mascarpone yoghurt, cinnamon and spiced honey syrup
This French toast is quite the opposite to the norm of a square toast topped with ingredients instead the presentation is very refined and not drowning the toast with the garnish. I’m sure the chef made sure that each piece of fruit had a matching piece of toast. That precision is reflected in the cooking as the toast is lightly fried, the inside is still fluffy and could have been served by itself.
Would I go again?
