Kelly’s Café is one of those hidden local gems that you just kick yourself for not discovering earlier.
On a gorgeous Saturday morning I was invited to have breakfast at Kelly’s and boy was I glad I said yes.
Atmosphere: Let me start by saying that I love the atmosphere of this place. Not only is there plenty of parking but the surrounding grounds are gorgeous. The inside of the café has beautiful garden bits and pieces to admire, whilst sitting outside will give you lovely views of the many flowers and gardens… which are worth taking a stroll through after your meal.
Food: The breakfast menu is served until 11:00am and it’s full of ythe usual suspects, hot and cold drinks, toast, pancakes, omelettes, breaky buschetta’s, big breakies and eggs. On the table we ordered a variety of foods and drinks, a sample of which included juices ($2.50 ea), tea ($4.00), cappuccino (3.60),a Tomato, Onion and Cheese Omelette with toast ($16.50) and a Farmhouse Breaky with bacon, 2 eggs, grilled tomato, hash brown, mushrooms, baked beans and 2 slices of toast ($23.50). I personally ordered the omelette, and it was delicious! The omelette was cooked well, the ingredients inside were generous and the size of the dish was very satisfying. There is definitely something on the menu to suit everyone here.
Price: The pricing is right on the money for the location and quality of food. Prices on the breakfast menu range from $5.00 for 2 slices of toast with jam and butter to $23.50 for the Famehouse Breaky, so you’ll still have money in your wallet for a plant or trinket on the way out.
Service: The servers here were lovely. Polite when taking your order, and easy enough to get hold off if you need something. Simple but good service.
If it isn’t already clear I really am kicking myself that I didn’t know about this gem when I was living in the area. I highly recommend it to anyone who is a fan of weekend breakfasts, or anyone wanting to treat their mum to a nice meal and catch-up.
