Who would have thought that the new ‘hipster’ style cafe’s would branch out of the city and into the suburbs? What’s more is who would have thought that they would branch out into The Hills! Being a Hills girl myself, I have never been proud of the cafe’s that we have on offer out here, and always opted to travel closer to the city to meet friends. However, 2015 has brought a new wave of gorgeous, trendy cafe’s into this area, where people are traveling from all over Sydney to get to – I know, crazy!
One of these so called ‘hipster’ cafe’s is The Tuckshop in Glenhaven. I had heard people talking about how cool this place was for a long time, with its crate seating, bright vibrant interior and of course their delicious food; burgers, breakfast and the like!
So of course, with nothing to do on a Tuesday morning, and being my hangry self, I dragged myself out of bed and headed five minutes down the road to The Tuckshop to check out whether it matched up to some of my Eastern suburbs – favourite places!
And alas – it did indeed! The Tuckshop brought Glenhaven rd alive for the first time ever! The place was full of young people desperate for a fancy feed. Seating sprawled out into the back courtyard, and onto the side of the cafe, and featured an almost picnic feel. The menu’s were set on the wall for people to help themselves, which gave the place even more of a ‘tuckshop’ vibe. What I loved about the menu was that everything was available all day – even breakfast which was awesome as even though I had slept in, I could still go for what I was craving, muesli.
The toasted muesli ($12) was actually really good, very sweet, however balanced by the natural yogurt. The serving was also very generous! I also (surprisingly) loved the coffee!
All in all, every one should go check this place out, I will definitely be a regular!!
And last thing – it isn’t the city and I cannot care less!
