The Flying Nun Cafe

Loads of people had told us about The Flying Nun Cafe at Samford, and we finally had a chance to check it out a few weeks back with The Threebies. The biggest compliment I can give them is that their meals are exceptionally well presented! For example, Kristy had the cornbread with smoked trout:

Ben went with banana and blueberry pancakes:

And Michelle and I went for the classic breakfast:

Yes, you’d be hard pressed to criticise them on their presentation, but taste is another matter entirely! Sadly, both Kristy and Ben rated their meals as “rather meh”. Not bad – just not great, either. On the up side, the classic breakfast was delicious, especially the toast (which was sourdough, I think)!

And so, two good meals out of four isn’t too bad I guess, but since the good two were actually the same meal, it’s more like a score of one out of three. Poor! And yet, I’d be happy to give it another chance, simply because the overall experience was good, and their coffee was above average. And as an added bonus, there was a nice chap in the park across the road that was happy for Ted and Oscar to play on his ride-on tractor.

Vroom vroom!
