Silver Spoon Cafe

After our visit to Coffee on Crown for some coffee and Death Sauce, we took a scenic route  through Newcastle's city centre to the Silver Spoon.

A charming café incongruously located next to a shopping mall, it is divided into a small inside room with a few tables, and a very pleasant courtyard area, complete with water feature.

Silver Spoon uses Campos coffee and has a one page menu with light items such as toast, quiche, toasted sandwiches, wraps, a salad, and a weekly special. In addition, there are some sweet things available at the counter.

There has to be a tableshot, doesn’t there? See the Coffee on Crown link above for more details about these watches.

First up - chicken, aioli, sundried tomatoes, Swiss cheese and greens ($9).

Some days, there's nothing better than a toastie. This one was good,  the proportion of each filling well balanced, and initialjh wished that he'd ordered a second one.

My choice was Spring risoni with smoked trout, spinach and citrus ($12).

The risoni, served as a salad, was the last remaining serve, despite it only being 1pm.

Nice and large, I was pretty pleased with this choice – it was light, contained a decent amount of the trout, and with enough of a lemon bite to whet the appetite and make it a very Spring/ Summer dish.

All the other folks who were there during our visit were also seated in the courtyard. Agreeable as the room is, if given the choice, outside is the place to be, especially on a sunny day when it is only half full, and you are free to relax and enjoy a coffee or light meal.
