Culture Bean is located opposite Kogarah hospital so it’s always buzzing with visitors and public services staff. But equally you should pay this a visit for their beautiful brunch and lunch options that are as pretty as a picture.
Its a small cafe but there is both indoor and outdoor seating available, we sat outside on a hot summers day and enjoyed the sunlight and shared a number of dishes and fresh drinks alongside our coffees.
We tried the healthy açai smoothie as well as a banana smoothie with honey and coffees, which they use Gabriel’s brand.
Eggs your way, avo on toast or the much loved Shakshuka, you’ll find your brekkie favourites on this menu. There’s also a granola bowl and a beautiful açai bowl for those looking for a healthy start.
We shared a few dishes between us, opting for one healthy brekkie bowl, a savoury dish and and a sweet dish too.
The brekkie bowl, filled with quinoa, mashed sweet potato, kale, roasted pumpkin and tomato, edamame, avo and topped with and egg and a lemon dressing was great for those who enjoy fresh healthy meals like me.
We also had the eggs Benedict which looked beautiful and it was on top of some lovely charcoal toast. They were kind enough to adjust to bacon instead of salmon too.
The crumpets by Merna Taouk were a hit. You can have them sweet with coconut yoghurt pistachio crumble and seasonal fruits or savoury with chorizo, bacon, harissa and labneh. We loved the sweet version of these.
Order at the counter but the food is brought to your table. Staff are friendly and hospitable. The cafe was efficient with their service too.
