The Coventry (Invited)

Tuesday, December 04, 2018 Sharon Halim 0 Comments

The Coventry is a newly opened cafe at South Melbourne. A brand new modern design, great for catching up with friends, great ambience, very spacious and they also have outdoor sitting and private section as well for group bookings. Another plus point is their strategical location, right in front of south melbourne market.

We ordered two drinks to start with; Flat white - strong coffee and great latte art! Green tea latte- great latte art, milky with light touch of matcha, though I prefer the matcha flavour to be stronger (because I'm a green tea fan!). The staff is extremely helpful as well as very friendly. She’s great knowledge of the menu, recommending different food variety to suit our preference.

Korean fried chicken & waffle ($25) – as recommended by the staff. Love the fried chicken, very tasty coatings with juicy chicken inside! The waffle was a little bit underwhelming as I’d like it to be crispier. But the sweet and savoury combination totally works! The amount of maple syrup was just right for me (not too sweet), but if you have a sweet tooth, the staff suggested that you could ask for more syrup or sugar sprinkle!

Prawn Saganaki ($25) – as recommended by the staff. Honestly not a huge fan of tomato-based sauce, as it is usually too heavy and rich to my liking, but this one is definitely a must-try! The tomato sauce was just right that I could actually finish the whole plate by myself! Love the generosity of the toppings: big pieces of prawns, chorizo, and cheese!

Peanut butter and Jelly crepes. Well, who doesn’t love this classic combination of PB&J? It is a perfect ending to our visit; Love the smooth and buttery crepe filled with generous filling. It is also accompanied with vanilla mascarpone to balance it off – though I thought ice-cream would be a great idea too!

It was a pleasant visit to this newly opened café, though some food are quite pricey (they have very generous portion though). They are still making lots of improvement and changes to the menu and design, but not currently operating at 7am-4pm on weekdays, and 8am-5pm on Saturday and Sundays. Will definitely revisit this café to check out their new menu and design later on!
