Man it feels good to have time to blog again! I’ve been so busy making our school yearbook that I have turned into an anti-social recluse at home and have only been on my computer for work. Boring! Simon treated me to brunch on Saturday morning to give me a bit of a break and I chose to go to the Rabbit Hole café as I have had it on my list of ‘must try’ places for quite a while. I like being able to tick things off my lists :)
Located in Herne Bay, this little café takes its decor inspiration from ‘Alice in Wonderland’. There’s lots of mismatched chairs and the place makers are playing cards. Simon and I popped ourselves down in these velvet throne-like chairs near the window seated around a cute chess board table. On a sunny day (it was stink weather in Auckland on Saturday) I reckon it would be pretty blissful to sit out on their deck and if you have little kids with you they have quite a selection of toys out there to keep them entertained.
I built my own breakfast and had scrambled eggs with a side of kumara rosti and haloumi. It was delicious and my accompanying hot chocolate was rich and flavourful. Simon had the Salmon eggs benedict which I avoided as I don’t like salmon :P
Our food came out quickly and with a touch of ‘Alice in Wonderland’ whimsy in the form of mismatched vintage plates.
There looked to be a good selection of little sweet treats up at the counter too. I didn’t go investigate though as my meal was more than enough and the place was pretty chocka.
I really enjoyed my visit to The Rabbit Hole and would stop by again. If you want even more of a treat for yourself you could stop for a bite here, then head up the road to Icing on the Cake and get a cupcake for dessert :)
