Four Ate Five

Today I got special guest, Joe from Melbourne, joined my food journey. We went to Four Ate Five, the new cafe in Surry Hills, just not so far from Bourke street bakery.


I was so happy when see the shop, seems to be funky, trendy and fun.


My skim cappuccino $3.50, so impressed with the latte art. Moreover, taste was bold, nicely strong but not too bitter. The beans are from Single Origin Roaster, funny enough, I prefer coffee here to the original place.


Joe had Soy Chai latte $5.00


Baked Eggs : Moroccan baked eggs with almond flake servied with grilled sourdough $16


I tried a bit, the eggs were very creamy and got the cruncky texture of almond flake, lots of spices. Nice dish !


Frech Toast : stuffed with banana served with maple syrup, mascapone and rhubarb $12.00

My choice, its really good. Normally I find banana in Australia is not sweet and floury but this one was quite ok. I love the rhubarb too.


Since I really like the cafe, I came here alone again on the following Saturday.


Home made cream corn : topped with 2 poached eggs & crispy bacon served with organic sourdough bread $15.00

Massive dish, I was a bit disappointed since the cream corn was too oily, I can see the pool of butter on the plate, its nice flavour though. The crispy bacon was too crispy for my liking..haha. I ate only half plate but almost finish eggs and sourdough.


The barista is a big guy, he was wearing the bunny ears when we first arrived there but when i took the photo, he already took it off. He made such a stunning coffee.


You also can find the Adriano pasties here.


I will come again to try more coffee and their pulled pork sandwich :D
