Cafe Trreat - Dulwich Hill

Having grown up in Dulwich Hill, it always feels like I'm returning home when I visit. 


I love it. 

Watching the suburb evolve over the years has been really interesting and fun to watch. 

Pete and I recently dined at Cafe Trreat, located on Marrickville road, Dulwich Hill.  

As the name suggests this cafe has carved out a niche in the area specialising in sweet treats - think freak shakes, brownies, ice cream desserts and more.

Because we visited at breakfast time we chose the less sweet options. To start we both had coffee and can I just say it was pretty good. Also impressive was the coffee art which greeted us.

One of the things that appealed about this place was that they offer a great range of gluten free options and at no extra cost. 

For breakfast I chose the Rolling Cheesy : A bacon and egg roll with camembert cheese, caramelised onion and bbq aoili. Pete chose the Breakfast Nachos.

Rolling Cheesy $13

Breakfast Nachos $15.50

The flavours were good on my bacon and egg roll, the roll was rather dry but I did choose the gluten free bun option which can be a gamble. Pete was rather disappointed in the breakfast nachos - he said the avocado was overripe the combination of flavours was underwhelming.

To finish we shared the Watermelon Crushie - a refreshing blend of crushed watermelon, frozen raspberries and apple juice and topped with lots of fresh fruit. It was the perfect drink to get us through this crazy heatwave we are having at the moment.
