With service at the counter, I firstly ordered espresso, from Portioli, then added their soup of the day which was beetroot and roasted parsnip.The core of their selection was cakey treats and given the soup combo spelled sweetness, I suspected I was in for something that didn’t entirely agree with my palette. And so it proved.
Brightly hued and profusely portioned, the soup proved a velvetty textured tooth-loosener.
On the upside, it was served with two doorsteps of excellent bread. On the downside, the coffee was poorly made and bitter as hell.
So overall, Deelicious Geelicious wasn’t my kind of place. The cake selection looked very pleasing but I really don’t like it when the cakey sweetness drifts over into sweet savouries. My advice would be go for the cake, stay for the cake.
