There is a cafe that my bus goes past, which has always caught my eye. Mainly due to the fact that it has a golden horse decal on the window. Nothing like something shiny to draw your attention.
So after a year of it being on my list, I finally ate there a couple of months ago. It was a quick breakfast the day before I started my first day of work.
Palomino replaced ‘Cupcakes on York’ if I’m not mistaken…in any case, it replaced a shop that sold cupcakes. It is extremely busy with the morning business crowd, and equally so during lunch. However, it was fairly easy getting a table around 9 or so.
A nice little heart to go with a very nice coffee.
I had the bircher muesli which was entirely filling, and made me feel very healthy. I could barely get through half of it, which was a real shame. The bowl was massive! The muesli was appropriately thick and creamy – much like eating cold porridge (but better). The berry compote helped to balance the richness of the muesli, with pistachios adding texture. I think it also had some apple shredded through (or apple juice), which added another layer of flavour. It was great.
My friend had the ranch sambo – which had a lot of ranch, a lot of egg, and a lot of avocado. All in all – it was more than filling, and very rich. If anything, it was a struggle to finish.
They have a whole selection of different sandwiches and salads for lunch, and other breakfast items that include poached eggs or homemade beans.
I leave you with a bonus picture of my cappuccino from another visit. Is it not the most beautiful coffee fern you’ve ever seen?
