Caffiend seems to be quite a popular cafe in Petone, offering a selection of cabinet food aswell as food cooked to order. I decided to pop in with my mum as she quite enjoys her eggs benedict and since we were in the neighbourhood I decided to give Caffiend a try.
We popped in during a week day where it was not busy, and we managed to find a table without any issues.
One thing that annoyed me was that I had popped Sweet Pea onto the table as she is still too young to sit up on her own. I was told not to put her on the table, even though she was wearing long trousers
Eggs Beny – Poached eggs with bacon on Ciabatta bread – the bread itself did not look at all ciabatta that is for sure. It looked and tasted like normal bread. there was only one piece of bacon that I could see. The Hollander cause was very buttery for my liking
Eastbourne Butcher Black Pudding w Crispy Bacon, Poached Egg, Spinach and Hollandaise Sauce – the only good thing I would say about this dish is the amount of black pudding that you get – three pieces to be exact. The hollandaise sauce as per above, quite buttery. The dish was a good dish but also quite a heavy and rich dish.
Cafe is ok, though not my favourite place. The food is ok but nothing overly exciting and the menu rarely changes.
