A few weeks ago, my family and I decided to try out the Caleidoscope Cafe. It used be known as Cup and Spoon and has been recently acquired by new owners. We never did try out Cup and Spoon so can’t compare.
The first thing we noticed, when we parked our car right outside the cafe, was the very cool mural on the wall. We sat outside and then I went in to order.
The interior looks very colourful. Fresh flowers on the tables, old records and a turntable as well as these really cool blues brothers statues. Lovely classical music was playing and it had a very quirky feel.
We ordered 2 kids milkshakes, 2 cappuccinos, cheese toast, bacon and egg roll and a pear and raspberry bread.
The milkshakes came out and were quite large for “kid-sized”. They also came with a marshmallow. My girls gasped and experienced bliss in the form of chocolate milky goodness.
The first thing we noticed when our coffee arrived were the gorgeous cups. The blend was “The Columbian Reserve”. I do love my Campos coffee but this was so good. Very strong yet creamy. We knew after our first sip that we’d be visiting more frequently (and we did go there this morning).
My husband ordered the same thing both times, bacon and egg roll, and his opinion both times was that it tasted great. Pear and raspberry bread tasted exactly how you’d expect. The cheese toast was on sourdough bread with tasty cheese.
The first time we visited, one of the owners came out with a cute little box and gave all the kids stickers. Today, they were very busy and we missed out.
After our coffee, we walked less than a minute to the John Carver Park. It is a small playground but was a nice way to end our morning brunch.
We see ourselves visiting this cafe at least once a month. I don’t believe they have a website yet but I will link to it once they do. In the meantime, here is their Facebook page.
