Today was my second visit to Cafe Bleu, after a quick stop to sample their Myrtle espresso, a couple of months back.
The place is run by an engaging Belgian pastry chef, who is full of enthusiasm for his new project. Judging by the cakes and tartes on offer, it’s a place that I should encourage our cakey chum Cake Quest to pay a visit.
I was in need of a breakfast feed, so was pleased to see smoked salmon and scrambled eggs as an option.
The owner was soon preparing things, and brought over a latte, in a half pint pot, for me to sip while the eggs were prepared.
The interior is very eclectically decked out, with a large fish tank as something of a centrepiece.
They soon arrived looking decidedly bonnie. The eggs were light and full of peppery goodness, which worked well with the saltiness of the salmon. The well-buttered cracked-wheat toast was really good, too.
So overall, I found Cafe Bleu to be a really charming little place. Another relative newcomer, its challenge is to get the message out about its existence, as it’s in a slightly betwixt and between location. Hopefully, this review will help, as I think it’s a place that’s well worthy of your attention.
