The Grumpy Barista Petersham
What a quaint corner café!!! As you walk into the café; the awe and wonder of ‘what’s in the glass box’ will excite your tastebuds. You will be faced with traumatic dilemmas, what panini and/or cronut will I have? The variety of cronuts does change regularly the Nutella injected cronut seems to be a favourite, and is regularly sold out! the Honey and Pistachio, maple syrup and macadamia, white chocolate and raspberry with pistachio brittle.
Toby’s Estate coffee is served. Despite its name – ‘Grumpy Barista’ – the coffee is superbly crafted and has a superior taste and delicate smoothness. Staff were friendly and obliging.
The ‘Green Smoothie’ was filling and delicious, packed full of super foods to counterbalance the cronuts, heaps of non coffee drink options available.
The Rueben – A super delicious and filling sandwich, was divine – the perfect amount of mustard, generous amounts of corned beef, smothered between some sauerkraut and rocket.
You need to make sure you save some room for the Cronuts – a light and flaky ball of goodness. I chose the Nutella Injected Cronut with custard filling, with a Nutella syringe very yummy and definitely a winner
The café has ample indoor and outdoor seating so you should always find a spot to savour all of the scrumptious goodies at the Grumpy Barista.
