Connect Café

A friend mentioned that a new café was opening at Campbell shops and since we were both being very indecisive about what we wanted to eat for lunch we decided to head there to see if it was open yet. It was, so we ate there. We later discovered that this was their first week of opening. In general the menu was a little limited, but there were 3 or 4 vegetarian choices and some others that were adaptable. My friend had the soup of the day (pumpkin) and was assured that it was not made with chicken stock. I opted for the mixed lunch salad without the chicken because it sounded pretty interesting – coming with grilled potato, walnuts, avocado and egg. And it was pretty interesting, it was also pretty big – there was a lot of lettuce, but also a reasonable amount of the other things as well. My friend said the soup was a little salty, and I then realised that the grilled potatoes in my salad were also a little on the salty side – but neither dish was so salty that we could not eat them. Given that it was their first week, there were a few little things that happened that will probably be improved in the future – such as my friend being given a knife and fork after ordering soup and then once the soup arrived being given the option of a soup spoon or a dessert spoon with which to eat it. Then, when she chose the soup spoon, the dessert spoon was placed on the table in case she changed her mind! The service was a little strange, but nothing else stood out. The food was nice and appeared fairly quickly. As my friend put it – it is a good place to come to for a quick lunch away from work…
