Quick Chop! Cafe Stella .... not so stellar

Another sunny day, another place to visit for brunch.  So on the menu for this outing, Cafe Stella in Henley Square, Adeliade.  As I wasn't very hungry I went for a smaller breakfast option - the Mushroom Bruschetta. 

Mushroom bruschetta - $9

The dish at Cafe Stella was not so stellar.  What was presented to me was a piece of toasted bread heavily covered in rocket, fetta and a miniscule amount of mushrooms.  Whilst the combination was flavoursome, something that is touted to be a mushroom bruschetta provided me with very little mushroom.

Mirko gives the bruschetta 5/10 chops on the chopping board.  If you are in Henley there are a number of other eateries that are worth trying.

  1. Disgraceful offering at that price. 5/10 seems overly generous to me.

    1. Hi Anon - it was pretty bad...the taste was ok, so maybe thats where i gave the 5. Not really much more I can say for this dish!

  2. My experience there yesterday was worse. We had six for coffee and could only sit on a bench as the cafe was full. We were roundly told to have a takeaway container and that no water would be made available, but that we could buy some. The coffee was ordinary and the staff were dismissive and rude. Will not be back

    1. Hi Anon - that is terrible. Definitely reason to not go back!

  3. Everytime I eat there the food is always so small, late, or both. Lack of better options in the area though makes me go back although this is rare
