A Japanese Scandinavian inspired cafe!

I am fortunate this little gem has opened its doors close to home. It brings something different to the area that will expand our food horizons and tantalize taste buds. They are in their element serving top-notch coffee and tea, as Edition Coffee Roasters is run by brothers Daniel Jackson and Corie Sutherland. IMG_5354.JPG

Dan has teased coffee lovers at Clipper, Room 10, Clover and Black Star Pastry. Whereas Corie, a Japan enthusiast, has sourced good japanese green tea and is also inspired by Nordic cuisine, hence the concept. Why not, these contrasting cultures come as one through their smart minimalistic designs, organisation and clean food. Edition Coffee Roasters represents all these characteristics and is a welcomed addition to the area.

They are roasting well-selected single origin beans and offer a nice selection of brewing methods like pour overs, aeropress and cold drips. This is also music to my ears as it means an extra devotion to delivering delicious milk based coffees. Think about it, your latte, flat white or cappuccino combined with an espresso shot from beans that are traceable to a single origin, as opposed to a blend where often no bean gets a star gig! Our flat white and latte were impressive with a good hit of flavoursome coffee, clearly brought through by their sin!

We arrived hungry and looking forward to a breakfast feast. Upon sighting the menu we were impressed to see a daring menu that moves away from the common avocado toast, boring breakfast boards or baked egg options, etc. Yes here expect the unexpected but rejoice when you see their striking pretty plates with damn good produce. On this occasion we go for the berries with jelly yoghurt, delicious. Followed by the prawn salad on a crispy seedy base, just a bit more seasoning would have had me singing. We top all this with the king salmon, creme fresh and pickles. I will have this dish again for lunch on my next visit, if only they served a nice Riesling or white from the Alsace region to go with it. Ok yes I am dreaming but good food often plays with your senses and has you pondering about the past or good memories. This place is surely a site to admire and ponder about food.
