Glebe Deli Café, Glebe – Rating: 13/25

Glebe Deli Cafe

Glebe Deli Cafe

Another “deli cafe”!  A conincidence we promise!  This family run café is a popular spot for locals. All of the breakfast dishes on offer were quite basic and reasonably priced.  The atmosphere is calm and subdued – the patrons seem to be a quiet crowd.  The wait staff were friendly yet seemed unsure of who ordered what and which table it should be taken to.

Fruit whip

The Fruit Whip ($4.90) was almost all made of berries, tasting very similar to a raspberry compote.  It was obviously thinner though, chilled and full of flavour.

Skim cappuccino

The skim cappuccino ($3) was average.  This didn’t say much for the Grinders blend of coffee and the freshness of the beans left something to be desired.

Scrambled eggs with toast and bacon

The scrambled eggs on toast ($6) with bacon ($?) was a simple dish presented simply. The ingredients were all cooked well and delivered what one would expect from such a dish.  The eggs, thankfully, were fluffy and… eggy 🙂  Unfortunately there isn’t much more we can say.

Toasted croissant with Hank's jam & butter

The croissant with Hanks Jam ($4) looked unappetising as it was served flattened by the grill yet the pastry was surprisingly crunchy and tasted buttery.

Overall, the Glebe Deli Café was a good value, local experience.  Compared to our recent exploits the dishes lacked flair but it would make for a welcoming quick stop for cakes, pastries, pies or a salad for lunch.

At the risk of sounding like snobs, when will cafes become smoke free inside and out?  Outdoor dining in Sydney is a pleasure, except when the person next to you blows their second hand smoke over your coffee and eggs.  If I wanted a side of nicotine I would’ve asked for it.
