Where the Bean Drops is a small but bustling cafe. It's quite warm inside but I also see a few tables outside as well. The menu is simple in choice but they also have specials on as well. I start the day with the Smoothie Bowl (above) bananas, kiwifruit, figs, coconut shards, acai seeds, granola seeds and almond flakes. This is a really refreshing breakfast to have. The smoothie has a nice balance of texture and taste. I sip my Lime and coconut tea and also eye off all the other fancy teas that where the bean drops has.
This is a great place for a tea lover but I do notice a healthy stream of coffee drinkers as well.
Matt is hungry and tries the Big Breakfast ($25) eggs of your choice (I always choose poached eggs) served with bacon, sausage, mushroom, spinach, tomato, potato rosti and toast. Matt looks pretty happy with the crispy bacon and I personally really enjoy the tomato,mushroom and rosti components. It's a great way to satisfy your hunger.
You'll also be tempted by all the treats that Where the Bean Drops have. There's an array of freshly home made treats baked daily for your pleasure from caramel tarts, Italian pastries, scotch chocolate biscuits, cakes, brownies and jam tarts. I basically drool all over this platter of desserts.
To help balance out our afternoon treats, Matt sips on this sexy hot chocolate which is topped with whipped cream, nuts and chocolate. I sip away at a mocha.
Summary: So if you're looking for a reasonably priced cafe that is unpretentious and homely then look no further than Where the Bean Drops in Rozelle. I highly recommend the smoothie bowl and their freshly baked treats (especially those italian treats)
