Wise Men Say (Invited)

Wise Men Say located just a view minutes walk away from Gardenvale station with plenty of street parking surrounding the cafe. The place has a funky decoration with mix and match vintage furnitures.  Spacious with a few tables of four, five and plenty of two. They also have a small playroom for kids with several toys which will keep them occupied for a while. It's conveniently just down the road from the beach which makes a good place to stop by before a nice day at the beach.

I saw some really cool lights made up of hats. Then Liz come by and offers us to order drinks to start and we did ordered coffee, koko black hot chocolate and fresh juice. Coffee comes from Axil and I heard the bartender is trained by them as well, no wonder the coffee is good. And the hot chocolate, it's koko black of course they are good.










We started with their home made Scones with jam & cream and Special of The Day: Mushroom Soup, The scones is pretty big and look dense from the outside but boy the inside was fluffy, airy and crumbly with slight crispiness on the outside. We love the scones as well as the mushroom soup. It has bits of pieces of mushroom in it with rich mushroom based. I could eat this everyday in this winter days.







My mom wanted to order the Reuben Benedict - corned beef, sweet red cabbage, swiss cheese, Russian hollandaise, poached eggs ($18.5). She was not disappointed with the dish, even more she said the corned beef was so delicious, she want to eat half of it for her dinner.



Baked Eggs - in capsicum, bean, tomato spiced ragout, pecorino, olive tape nade, Trukish toast ($17.5) and chorizo ($4.5). The dish was exploding with flavour from the tomato, bean, capsicum, just simply rich and yummy. It also had a nice crust on the bottom. All of the dishes comes in a very generous serving with simple decoration but rich flavour.




Liz was friendly and very accomodating. I notice every regular customer they has are warm, there was also this nice old lady who give up the big table for us without me or Liz requested. Just because she saw me with a pram and she want me to have the big table for better picture for the cafe. That says a lot about the cafe.
