Chefs Cafe, Bella Vista





Along Lexington Drive in Norwest Business Park (the complex where Fitness First use to be) is where you will find Chefs Cafe.

Discovering the cafe late last year, we recently went back for breakfast.

Arriving at nine am a little earlier than last time thanks to Gabby's early morning gymnastic session, yup that's right gymnastics for toddlers, the cafe was about three quarters full.

Finding a vacant table we sat down, and were quickly attended to by a staff member who found us a high chair and took our drinks order. Scouring the menu I choose the haloumi brushetta with poached egg, grilled tomato and pesto. Mr FPL ordered poached eggs with bacon and chorizo topped with avocado, tomato and spanish onion. Gabby had toast and a banana from her lunch bag.

The atmosphere was relaxing, the crowd varied between a large group of cyclists, several young couples and families. Out the front sat a guitarist playing a few tunes.

Our breakfast didn't take long to arrive. On my plate sat one slice of bread topped with spinach, two slices of grilled haloumi and a perfectly cooked poached egg topped with chives.  Also sitting on the plate was a generous amount of pesto and half a grilled tomato. With only one slice of bread I was mistaken when I thought it wouldn't be filling, I remained satisfied for the majority of the day.

Too consumed in my meal I only had a small bite of Mr FPL dish which seemed to suit him fine.

Overall I wasn't disappointed, the food was tasty and the coffee was good. The biscuit served with the coffee was a nice touch.  The waiter who cleared our table was very friendly and we chatted a little about the cafe, during our conversation he mentioned that they have another cafe in Baulkham Hills called Arthurs Street Cafe.
