Cafe Sopra

Being one of the best cafe in Sydney, Cafe Sopra is in my ''a must go'' list. We went there 2 times in 2 weeks and the 3rd time in the following month.

The first time I came here was after breakfast at Danks Street Depot. Actually we were quite full but couldn't resist to try some dishes there.

The huge black board is so charming. (can we use this word for the black board? lol)

Zucchini flowers stuffed with five Italian cheeses $4.50 each

This was my first time had the stuffed zucchini flower which I was looking forword to. And I was not disappointed at all. The batter was so light and the cheeses were so deliciously creamy.

Being Simon's fanclub, of course I have to try his favourite Affogato !

It was very good, one of the best since their vanilla ice cream is packed with vanilla seeds ! Funny enough, let u look at the first affogato we had and I will tell you more.

Chocolate Souffle with vanilla bean ice cream $14

Happy shot !

Not bad but it didn't ''wow'' us.

The second time P'Ta and I took another 2 girls, P'Maam and Ping.

Antipasti Misti $14.50 (but they charged us double..maybe for 4 people -_-'')

We were like this dish, many small things you can pick :D

Field mushrooms $8.50 Not as nice as the one at Danks Street Depot

Risotto with chicory and gorgonzola $22

The cheese was so strong smell, rich and intense in flavour, a bit too salty though.

Fritata with goat curds and baby basil $14.50

I really like this... so soft, creamy yet light, especially the goat curd part (which normally I am not a fan of goat cheese). The let down thing only was the bread underneath which should have been toasted. Too chewy.



This time was the 2nd time we had affogato....the best... The glass was full of ice cream...

and look at below, the latest time we had affogato.

Our affogato and Ping hot chocolate...

Look at the amount of ice cream compared to the first one and the 2nd T_T

Since that time, my winner of Affogato is still the one from Campos.

wow you've tried heaps of things. i'm keen to try those Zucchini flowers stuffed with five Italian cheeses now. they must be a seasonal dish because i can't remember seeing them on the menu when i went a while ago. glad you tried the affogato. pity about the difference in serving size. they should have been consistent. i'll have to try the campos coffee one now to compare. the one i had was pretty full to the top

Oh, Cafe Sopra has been on my list of places to go for SO long :( I really want to try the affogato's now :)

Bean Sprout's Cafe said...

Simon : I still wanna try more of their pasta dishes and the Arancini with Taleggio, olives and salad cream. Yeah, the affogato is super good when it came with lots of ice cream... You have to try at Campos, the best for me (and same consistency) The iced coffeee and iced mocha are very good too.

Betty : you should go ... this weekend? hehe
