Auvers Cafe, Rhodes

Auvers cafe is a cute little cafe located amongst the concrete jungle in Rhodes. It serves amazing coffee and great food. Food orders are taken at the counter and paid for first - which is all good; except I almost experienced my table being taken by overly eager patrons on the busy Sunday that I visited. Luckily for me, it was not. 

Food orders came in a timely manner and presented neatly. I ordered the signature Auvers' Pancakes, since it was so pretty in photos. I tend to eat with my eyes, and it paid off because it was bloody delicious. The pancakes were light and fluffy with a red bean paste sandwiched between the layers. The matcha sauce that was drenched on top had the perfect balance of matcha for me; it was not too overpowering, yet was not that sweet either. The balance of the fruits and raspberry sorbet that topped the pancake balanced the whole dish out from being not too sickenly sweet. 

Auvers Pancakes (v) - $18; Matcha pancakes, premium matcha glaze, sponge, red bean paste and raspberry sorbet. 

Cold brew - $5 

The cold brew on the menu was my drink of choice for the hot Summer in Sydney. The blend from that day was an Ethiopian mix from Tade GG Estate. The info sheet suggested to 'expect tangerine and ripe banana flavours, trademark Guji juiciness/creamy texture with a delicate floral aftertaste'. It was definitely flavoursome, and so we even bought the beans home with us to DIY cold brew. The lady serving us shared her coffee bean knowledge with us and was very helpful in bagging the beans for us. Thanks!  

Chorizo hash with onsen egg, basil pesto and leek ash - $18 

Po ordered the special of the day which consisted of chorizo bits, potato bites, some greens topped with an onsen egg. It was okay. The dish was quite small and so he opted for the brekkie roll as his second meal. 

 Brekkie Roll - $10 

The brekkie roll satisfied Po's hunger with the fried egg, bacon and housemade tomato chutney and greens in the soft brioche bun. Bacon always wins with Po.

Overall it was a good brunch experience. Got myself some tasty beans to make cold brew for the hot summer mornings. Service was attentive and great, despite not having table order service. Location was quiet and chilled - can almost stay there the whole day working on the computer if need be. Will definitely revisit once my beans are finished for a refill.
