Headed over to Malabar on a Sunday morning to have brunch at Nostimo Café.
This is another area we never venture into but it’s always nice to go out and explore Sydney. There’s so much to see and do but with such a busy work life, it’s hard to just sit back and enjoy the finer things in life like going for a drive and eating a meal in a place which is unfamiliar and away from the hustle and bustle of the city.
Walking up to this little gem, you can see that it is a fave with the locals. Lucky they knew we were coming, so we had a table reserved for us otherwise, we would have had to wait.
With the café being as busy as a little bee, we were shown to our table and within a few minutes, we were given some drinks to start with.
We had a fresh pineapple and watermelon juice and an acai juice with blueberries and coconut. Both were delicious – the freshly squeezed one being super refreshing!
Next we were brought six different plates and there were only two of us. You can tell that the owners are super generous but also that they put a lot of love into the food they make.
First we were given pancakes with strawberries, blueberries, rock melon, and pawpaw topped with an orange slice and icing sugar. This was beautifully presented and so colourful. Definitely the embodiment of spring – not to mention they were absolutely delicious.
Next, they brought out the sautéed mushroom which was a special. This was served with wilted spinach, bacon, poached eggs, beetroot hummus, seeds and dukkah. This was just perfect. The dukkah added a nice flavour to the food and the beetroot hummus was a nice surprise – everything went really well together!
The third plate brought out was the spiced cauliflower which was another special. This was served with fried kale, poached eggs, sesame seeds, sumac, chorizo oil and lime. This too, was good! The fried kale gave the dish a nice crisp.
The fourth dish was the breakfast stack. This consisted of poached eggs, bacon, tomato, mushrooms, baby spinach, and avocado topped with hollandaise sauce. Also beautifully served like the first three, the hollandaise is definitely a winner.
Finally, the fourth and fifth dishes were super breakfast bowls.
One being an Acai bowl with amazon berries, topped with strawberries, banana, granola and coconut flakes.
The other, green energy made up of spinach, banana, ginger, orange, pineapple, mango and apple juice also topped with strawberries, banana, granola and coconut flakes.
They were both super pretty – it was hard to choose which one was better!
And can you believe, we finished all six plates between the two of us?!
This shows you just how good the food was.
This is definitely a winning café and one you definitely shouldn’t miss.
Thank you so much to Ompty Media for the invite and Nostimo Cafe for having us!
