Neighbourhood Favourite: Element 6
I was really excited to discover that a new little cafe, Element 6, had opened next to West Ryde station. Ben and I decided to check it out this morning and we were very impressed. It's quite a small space and it was pretty packed when we arrived. We thought we might have to wait a little while but luckily a table became free within a few minutes. The decor is very cute, with vintage wooden school chairs, exposed brick walls and hot air balloon paintings on the walls. The staff were very friendly from the get-go, even fixing our wobbly table without being asked. We both ordered coffees which were huge and arrived very quickly. Ben liked his coffee so much he ordered another. I got the vegetarian big breakfast which consisted of two poached eggs on sourdough, mushrooms, a really yummy onion jam, some beans and lentils on the side, a sun dried tomato, corn cake and spinach leaves. Ben had the regular big breakfast which was basically the same as mine but with bacon. We were very pleased and it being just a 10 minute drive from home was an added bonus.
Stay tuned for some more hidden gems in my area and have a happy weekend. xo
