Shouk Cafe – Paddington

  Brisbane in the spring.  Who doesn’t love the fabulous jacaranda! This was part of our view from the balcony at Shouk cafe.  Fully enclosed, yet high enough to still offer a nice view  whilst you enjoy breakfast.  Relaxed and unrushed, as well as wry enjoyable. One could not enjoy this brekky setting.  This fabulous carrot/ginger/apple juice was very popular at our table and, I’m told was superb.. Now this wasn’t my choice today as I chose the Egyptian iced tea.  With a hint of what I suspect was rose water, the iced tea was most refreshing, a great kick start to the day. To say there is a relaxing atmosphere in a cafe, which is so obviously popular,sounds a little cliche.  However, even though there were numerous patrons, staff were relaxed, friendly, helpful, and most of all, appeared unrushed.  After many years spent in hospitality, I really do appreciate relaxed, yet efficient staff.  Well done to all the staff, impressive.  My choice today was avocado on toast with a side of smoked salmon.  Very happy I chose the half serve, this was more than enough for me!  Loved the meal, it was superb. ‘The Jackson’ is Shouk’s version of a big breakfast.  Now I’m told this was devine, every bite.  Other meals included the latke stack which was potato cakes pancake style, with cream cheese and a choice of bacon, salmon or haloumi. Around the Paddington area of Brisbane there are a number of cafes.  Many of which we are yet to visit.  There are a couple here which we enjoy revisiting , this cafe, could well  join the list. Take some time to check it out, I very much doubt you will be disappointed.👍
