Ever so slightly worse for wear, we headed into Hillsborough for brunch last weekend. I’ve got to be honest, I wasn’t overly hopeful. After years of having the likes of Tamper and the Wig and Pen on my doorstep, I have been a little spoiled in the breakfast department, and I had no idea what I’d end up with in Hillsborough.
Choco Latte was already on my radar for their bistro evenings and as we wandered through the main shopping area, we noticed the cafe was quite busy and decided to give it a go for brunch.
Light and bright inside with a choice of tables and sofa area, Choco Latte is clean and inviting. A quick glance at the chalkboard menu and I spotted that there was a smoked salmon and scrambled egg bagel on offer – I was sold.
Sadly I hadn’t spotted the eggy bread with bacon, but Gav had…
For less than a tenner for both plates, including a coffee each, we were more than happy with Choco Latte. The food was tasty, servings were perfectly ample and there was a laid back and easy vibe to the place.
We haven’t had chance to try many of the cafes in Hillsborough, but I’m pretty sure Choco Latte will become a bit of a regular haunt for us – in fact we’re already booked in for one of their bistro nights!
