We came here because we'd heard good things of this newish cafe.

Parking was on the roadside.

We walked in and immediately thought the well-lit, spacious cafe with indoor and outdoor tables felt very inviting.

The most unusual thing on the menu was vegan sticky black rice with seasonal fruit.

We ordered the Shore Road shakshura - yellow and red peppers with onions, tomato and spices topped with poached eggs, feta and crusted bread ($17.50) and the green fritters - spinach and chilli with bacon, poached egg and hollandaise sauce ($17.50). Both were well presented and very tasty. The fritters were so filling that Leanne was dismayed not to be able to leave her plate clean.

The service was excellent - the coffee arrived almost immediately and the entirely male front-of-house staff were friendly, efficient and cheerful.

The coffee was just right. The barista knew his stuff.

We recommend if you come here sit outside and pretend you're in a quiet village, while only minutes away from the bustle of the city.

Overall we thought Shore Road made a welcome change from some other cafes we've visited recently that have stock-standard menu items. Adding interest to the choices is a big plus.
