Labld is a relatively new cafe in Marrickville. Set up in an old cornerstore, with the original facade, inside is a hip hop trendy locale. The place is busy with punters enjoying the morning grind. The milked based coffee is really good, using beans from Mecca, served alongside their delicious menu using local artisan products, which they also sell instore.
The menu has interesting choices, with Asian inspired flavours. With the likes of momos, typically a Nepalese specialty, these dumplings morphed into an amazing breakfast choice with their “Breakfast momos”. These little pockets of joy, filled with wine infused bacon, egg tomatoes and shallots.
There are also a few heathy options that also deliver in the flavour department. The house cereal was the goods. This vegan dish uses nicely seasoned organic granola topped with seasonal fruit and a generous serve of co-yo (that’s coconut yoghurt) which was actually very tasty. Then there is the 3 mushketeers if you are after something savoury. The trifecta of mushrooms made up of king, field and enoki, served atop of berry rice gremolata and a fried egg. This dish is gluten free and a great choice for breakfast or lunch.
If you like your eggs, they have the amazing birds nest. This dish is a spectacle, with a nicely presented poached egg wrapped in crisp potato spaghetti, served with avocado puree, fried leek and snow pea tendrils.
A great new comer to the Marrickville cafe scene. Labld. has great coffee a cool set up and innovative menu. One to add to your list of must visits in the area
