Trainspotting Cafe is a small cafe right near Lewisham train station. It’s quirky without being pretentious and instantly won me over with its friendly staff, simple but appealing menu, and good value. The interior is comfortable, bright and decorated with some beautiful images, including a wall of kids’ drawings. Cute!
Mum took the virtuous road and ordered the homemade granola with poached rhubarb and yoghurt ($8.50). I took the other route and went for the cholesterol fest of baked eggs with bacon, chorizo, roast mushrooms and homemade baked beans ($16). Both were great – nothing fancy, just down-to-earth, well-cooked, home style food. Exactly what’s needed on a rainy Saturday morning. (They were also playing The Best of New Order – tidy.)
Being the awesome woman I am, I even took a bacon and egg roll with tomato relish back to Mr Black, which is how I got this completely gratuitous gooey egg yolk shot. Phwoar! Next time we’ll give the breakfast roll, with added avocado, cheese, rocket and basil feta sauce. And we’ll definitely be back!
