Coco Belle sits on the corner of Reynolds Road and Queens Road in the leafy affluent suburb of Mount Pleasant. We met our friend Susie and her daughter Annabel here for a Sunday brunch/lunch. The staff are immediately friendly and welcoming and genuinely pleased to see you. The menu has plenty of options for everybody and some superb smoothie options. We were reliably informed by Susie that the decaf option is very nice too. It took some perusal of the menu before we finally decided.
I chose a smoothie with peanut, banana, cocoa and oat milk – this was silky and delicious.
Pete and Susie both chose coffee which is sourced from Osborne Park roastery Dark Star, and as promised the decaf was freshly ground, and delightfully smooth with soft citrus and dried fruit flavours.
Annabel chose a babycino – a nice amount of froth, with sprinkles as well as marshmallows.
There were several options on the menu that I liked, but I finally plumped for an omelette with caramelised onions, mushrooms and bacon. It was so tasty from start to finish and served with a lovely salad and some toast. A very generous serving.
Susie chose the smashed avocado on toast with eggs and a side of bacon, again a very tasty and plentiful dish.
Pete chose the shakshuka – roasted tomato, capsicum, garlic, chick peas with poached egg and toasted flatbread. A very enjoyable dish, maybe a little underseasoned, but with a little table salt it was perfect.
Annabel chose pancakes – Ice cream, chocolate, strawberries. What more could a girl want?
We found Coco Belle to be a very child friendly and welcoming venue with lots of good food options catering for a variety of dietary requirements. The food and drinks are good quality and this is definitely one of the best cafes in the area.
