Ever since my last visit to The Loose Caboose, I have been yabbering on about how much I love the place. There’s just something about it that I enjoy as much as a zooper dooper on a sweltering day… which believe me is a whole bunch. Except when you overdo it and get little cuts on the corners of your mouth and end up looking like the joker… that’s not just me right? Anyway when I heard that the eatery Einstein’s from one of my favourite cafés have something cranking down Semaphore way, I just had to check it out!
Lucky for us the sun had decided to come out and play, and my sister and I basked in the warm rays whilst cruising along listening to some fresh beats (yep I’m sick!) Whipped Bake Bar Café is the Semaphore sapphire we were headed for and we had our fingers and toes crossed that it was going to be a memorable bite!
The café has an undeniably pleasant vibe upon entrance with rich floor boards, white walls and bright pops of colour all over the joint. You can clearly see that the creativity juices were flowing when the design of the café was executed, yet it’s not so over the top to make anyone feel out of place. You never want to take the olds to a ‘hipster hang’ where they keep asking questions like ‘what’s that old bike doing on the wall?!?’ Ohhhh parents.
I decided to go with the eggs benny because as Julia Child said “With enough butter, anything is good.” I was certainly onto a winner because the eggs were undeniably perfect. Firm and bouncy (like the buns of Ryan Gosling) and once pierced with my fork a waterfall of gooey yokey goodness flowed out (presumably NOT like the buns of Ryan Gosling.) The ham was nothing special but certainly met the standard and the bread was something a little bit different. I am not sure what you would call this carbohydrate but it was almost a cross between an English muffin and a burger bun. Either way I don’t need to know what it is in order to love it, which I did! Speaking of love... my dining companions enjoyed their meals just as much as I did.
Not only does Whipped have a super good menu filled with breaky and lunch munches, there is also plenty of baked deliciousness in the glass cabinets to drool over. Next time, that ‘caramel dream’ cupcake will not make it out alive.
On the final roundup I have to say this place gets a mad tick from me. Maybe not quite as ‘special’ in my eyes as The Loose Caboose but super pleasant and just as delectable. Oh and the one disappointment I experienced is the fact that I asked for the hollandaise on the side and I got it on the meal AND on the side. Like how does one hear ‘on the side’ and come to to the conclusion that I wanted a double hit? Who the hell needs that much hollandaise?
Until next time… Stay Rad-elaide.
