Sweetshop Specialty Coffee, based in Bardon, offers its customers classic brunch meals complemented by piping hot cups of their caramelly house blend.
Offering a delectable modern brunch menu, this café serves up delicious all-day options such as their Brisket Benny, which consists of spice-rubbed brisket, poached eggs, hollandaise sauce, jalapeno cornbread, confit garlic and rosemary.
Their more savoury meals are contrasted by their sweeter, more dessert-like Sweetshop Waffles served with PBJ ice cream, macerated strawberry and choc hazelnut crumb. Other sugary options include their smoothies. The Cuban, for instance, is made up of banana, pineapple, papaya, apple and coconut water all blended together.
As their name suggests, the café also serves specialty coffee. Their house blend, Seven Seeds Espresso Blend, possesses a sweet and balanced flavour with hints of caramel. It consists of a fifty-fifty split between beans from Gallito De La Roca, Peru, and Palermo, Colombia. Seven Seeds’ coffee in particular highlights good acidity, clarity, and sweetness.
Reviews from customers have been generally positive, with comments speaking favourably of the restaurant’s coffee and atmosphere. One person remarked that it was a “Relaxing space to be in” and complimented the café on its expert baristas and convenient location. Another wrote that “The staff are highly trained with vast knowledge on the blends they use and how to make them.”
