Café Polo (82 – 84 Rotherham Terrace, Miramar)
All I knew of Café Polo was that it was supposed to have great bacon and eggs. A visit to Weta Workshop (which is incredible by the way) provided the perfect excuse to eat out this way, and I am so glad we did. I had to order the eggs based on the recommendations I’d had, but we also got the Café Polo sandwich with fries and aioli – it was enormous. Two people could share that for sure.
Café Polo had a massive menu, and a beautiful cabinet full of freshly baked sweets, with a loaf of their delicious homemade sour-dough on the top. It is also fully licensed, and they had paired a number of their meals with certain drinks from their menu (an under-appreciated useful gesture I think!). The café is way bigger than it looks from the outside as well.
The orange juice I ordered was bang on beautiful, but I wasn’t so sure about the coffee… I might need to taste it again before I confirm that I thought it tasted rather like grinds. All in all, it was a pretty good experience. The scrambled eggs were delicious and so was the house made 5 grain toast. Five stars to the garlic aioli (that came with the fries) also!
