Glacage is a venue that would be aptly described as a “hidden gem”. Minimal signage, and located at the back of a residential block beside a Thai Restaurant, you’d have to know it was there to visit. It was, and is, a very busy place. Therefore, it has a good name in the community and surrounds. We can certainly see why. Everything was absolutely on point.
The space is rustic, wooden panelled walls and wooden tables, some with mosaic tiles. Seats are made plush with cushions and the space is decorated with bird cages and bunches upon bunches of flowers. This styling makes it feel homely and comfortable. The space is large, with a few seated spaces, so you could certainly take a group there.
Order at the counter, and you can select from the wide menu or something small (and sweet from the glassed display shelf). The menu is superb and we could have ordered so many things – healthy açai bowls, to eggs benny, brekkie boards, French toast or waffles, it’s a shame we could only fit three things in our bellies!
Glacage has three brekkie boards to choose from: the Glacage, Aussie and Mediterranean. We went for the Mediterranean – a generous service of chorizo, haloumi, mushroom, eggs, olives and more! A healthy brekkie that is certainly possible to share.
Sautéed mushrooms on toasted sourdough, with truffle mayonnaise, steamed asparagus, and crunchy poached eggs, topped with micro herbs. The mayo was divine and we really enjoyed the truffle flavour to the dish. We would 100% order this time and time again.
We also couldn’t go past the strawberry cheesecake waffles for a sweet choice to end the meal. The crunchy waffles were topped with and a granola crumb. A must order for those with a sweet tooth.
Coffee by St Ali Coffee Roaster, fresh juices, smoothies and more, you will find a drink to suit your meal. We went for a coffee and chai which were both lovely blends.
The staff are extremely knowledgeable, friendly and hospitable, and you will feel very welcome here. Add it to your list of places to visit soon!
