2 Sisters Cafe and Patisserie, Berwick
14 Blackburne Sq, Berwick.
Today is a great day for going out for coffee in Berwick. The sun is shining, there is a cool breeze blowing through the trees and like the daffodil and jonquils, locals are slowly breaking out of their winter hibernation.
I haven’t posted much lately, mainly because of the winter ills and the cold and the wearying effect of not enough Vitamin D from not enough sun. But today I am back and keen to try out Berwick newest offering, 2 Sisters Cafe & Patisserie.
So basically anything with the word patisserie in it gets me excited. TV shows, cafes, recipe books, Countries. So I was well pleased to stumble across our very own Patisserie in leafy Berwick. 2 Sisters Cafe and Patisserie, Berwick is non too shabby either. In fact, I really liked it!
The kind of Cafe that reminds you of actually visiting your own sisters house, but with less lego on the floor. Also, I think, the perfect place to sup caffeine with your very own sister, should you be so lucky to have one. I have five sisters, but I am not sharing sorry ;-).
I had the chance to chat to one of the proprietors and she was sweetness itself, just like her cake and sweet offerings. She tells me they have been open for a few months and that she runs the Cafe with her sister (no surprises there) and that they have never run a Cafe before but that they are keen and excited so they just jumped right in. Gorgeous hey? And reminds me a little bit of our areas other huge success stories and my favourite, O.My Restaurant (2 brothers in that instance). http://omyrestaurant.com.au
They have snaffled themselves a nice little location in Blackburn Square with a few pavement seats in the sunshine.
The coffee was fine. Map coffee beans if you are interested. At $3.50 a cup they might just win my heart as one of the only local cafes to not have completely lost their minds about the price of a cup of hot joe. But the real strength here is the beautiful array of cakes, slices and pastries. Yum!
They make them mostly onsite and themselves, with sister number two being designated chef and the passion behind the food. We partook of a slice of hedgehog ($2.50) a piece of baclava ($3.50) and a raspberry and white chocolate scone ($3.50).
It was all very good. There was an amazing looking Romanian Celebration Cake in the cake display that I loved the look of. This can be ordered for special occasions and I think I would quite like to find myself a special occasion just so I might order it. They do wraps, sandwiches, bacon & eggs and pasta dishes as well.
So pop by and say “Hi” to the sisters and shout yourself some cake and let me know what you think. It is a simple cafe, not as well dressed as La Baguette (my current fav) but very comfortable and welcoming in its own way. A great addition to Berwick’s cafe scene.
P.S. (Does the P.S. still exist?)
