Affogato Espresso Bar

To celebrate my housemate scoring an interview at an awesome company (which she now works at), we headed to Affogato Espresso Bar in Hardware Lane for a pre-interview breakfast.

It's a cosy little place that seems quite popular, unsurprising as they serve good quality food. We place our orders and then waited for our food. And then waited some more. I suppose there's a reason why they're advertising for more staff when only one waiter and one chef were working. After a little more waiting, we finally ended up with our food.

First up, simple and tasty fruit toast.

More simple fare: Poached eggs with spinach.

A gluten free 'Healthy Breakfast' option.

And if you want to go all out, there's the Big Breakfast.

The food is good, the coffee is decent and if you have time to spare, then the slow (but friendly) service isn't an issue. Perhaps it's better suited for a weekend breakfast, rather than a pre-work breakfast though.

    Looks awesome. How much were the meals?

  2. From memory, the fruit toast was $4, the poached eggs with spinach were $12, the healthy breakfast was $13.50 and the big breakfast was $18. Hopefully I'm not a goldfish!
