The Hideout Cafe is a hidden gem in Toongabbie. If you’re not from the area, it is highly recommended that you take a trek over to try the food.
They have a wide variety of items on their menu and an array of cakes and pastries strategically displayed to catch your eye at the front counter.
It’s always hard to choose a few dishes but we managed to go for the Lebanese big brekky. It comes with two fried eggs, Lebanese sausages, homemade labneh (this is a yoghurt cheese), kalamata olives, cucumber, tomato and Lebanese bread.
Everything on the plate was delicious. The Lebanese bread was the perfect piece to pair with everything included or just to be creative and make a wrap.
Eggs benedict was another menu item we ordered. It came with a toasted English muffin topped with avocado, wilted spinach, smoked salmon, two poached eggs and a creamy hollandaise sauce.
The poached eggs were nice and runny and the hollandaise sauce had a really nice flavour to it.
A little something for those wanting a healthier option is the mango and lychee smoothie bowl which comes with a mango, lychee and banana blend, topped with shredded coconut, chia seeds and fresh fruit.
This to me was heaven in a bowl! I’m not the biggest fan of bananas or coconut but everything on here went really, really well together, not to mention that mango and lychee are two of my fave fruits which made it even better.
One thing you must try is the oregano and cheese pizza. This honestly is the BEST one I’ve ever had and I’ve had quite a few from various places.
It may not look like anything special from the picture but it honestly is the most amazing thing ever. If I could only eat one thing for rest of my life, it would be this!!! The base was soft but the crust had just the right amount of crunch and the topping was the perfect ratio of oregano to cheese.
For drinks we had the lemon and mint crush, and a Tim Tam thickshake.
The lemon and mint crush was nice and refreshing while the Tim Tam thickshake was enough to satisfy my sweet tooth.
Hubby also ordered a long black which was made of a nice blend.
These guys seem to be a hit with the locals and was buzzing with customers.
We dined as guests with a $60 credit. We went a bit over because we like to at least give back a bit to the places we get invited to.
This is one to put on the list – what would you like to try off the menu?
