Quick post – such a shame I already had a steak and mushroom pie before finding this cafe. I’ve been meaning to try Calmer Sutra Chai (a recommendation from a friend who drives to ?Moorabbin from Box Hill to source it) for a while having finished my bag of Prana Chai from the coffee expo earlier this year and found that this cafe was listed on their website.
Of course, I got tempted by their display of sweets and had a muffin as well… I chose a raspberry and white chocolate one – I must say their muffin suffered from the same problem mine often do as well – gravity while baking! They were clearly very generous with their white chocolate chips because most of them migrated to the bottom and caramelised (still tasty!)
It’s really unfortunate I was rushing to go to a doggy date because I forgot to confirm they actually served Calmer Sutra Chai – it certainly did have the brewed chai feel with a little bit more residue than I’d like in the bottom of the cup. They used quite a bit of honey but I guess the chai to go with the sweet muffin needs to pack quite a punch.
I need to come back to try their pancakes – looks amazing and served with grapefruit curd….
The dogs were certainly welcome at this cafe – I saw one in a cute woolen jacket… Shame my rather insecure dog isn’t very social… She behaved somewhat at the doggy date though – probably because there were cupcakes for the dogs (!).
