Something sumptuous at Starlings Cafe

Send to Kindle

Come and dine at the Starlings Cafe, the secret gem of the Southern Suburbs, tucked away on Belvedere Road in Claremont. This gorgeous café is decorated simply yet beautifully with an eclectic mix of furniture with a Victorian charm and has a warm welcoming feel to it.

Dine inside by the fireplace or alfresco in the gorgeous garden surrounded by trees and vines. All the meals are homemade, served in large portions and are irresistibly good.

If it’s the best cappuccino on the block you are after, then look no further, the rich coffee flavor with a velvety, creamy froth on top, decorated beautifully with chocolate power, it doesn’t get better than this. They are open early for breakfast and serve lunch in the afternoons, but whichever time of day you decide on, you’re in for a treat. The herbed pancake with avocado, salmon, baby tomatoes and rocket is phenomenal and absolutely enormous.

Other favourite breakfast dishes include the eggs on brioche toast with a Dijon mustard and pastrami hollandaise sauce and the breakfast wrap stuffed with chorizo, scrambled egg and salsa.

At lunch time you can gorge yourself on mouthwatering meals such as the pesto, smoked mozzarella and pine nut lasagna, mushroom risotto, a bacon, brie and tomato chilli jam sandwich as well as loads of other delicious fillings. If you prefer a light lunch, they serve soups of the day and an exciting choice of salads.

The staff are all incredibly efficient and friendly while the atmosphere is warm and relaxed. There are so many home baked desserts to choose from that are all displayed under glass covers on the counter top and they all look so yummy.

I loved the teacup display – there is a board with hooks mounted on the wall with pretty teacups hanging off them, that have been donated by their patrons. What a clever and unique idea! Overall I give the Starlings Café a huge thumbs up in all departments.
