“Only I am a vegetarian and…”
Our soups are made with vegetable stock that I make myself and to keep it lovely we are going to stick to all veg, no dairy, no wheat and group cuddles whenever possible.
The soup is served with toasted Pide roll unless you don’t want one.
Of course you can take it away as well

We had our first batch of judges from the golden plate awards through today. They seemed quite lovely. Heather took them through the back to see the new kitchen in progress and had a chat.
It was a bit like meeting your inlaws for the first time, everyone is very keen to get on but a bit nervous. Oh well.
The work has started on our new kitchen today!!!!
Robby has been working hard and fast and nearly all the framing is up today
Wooooooooooo blooddy hooooo:)
The then cement sheet is arriving shortly and the slow process begins
To state the oblivous is a long black coffee… well sort of.
Then as things generally go when it comes to all things coffee, it just get freakin strange. So a guy walks into the cafe….
“Can I have a long black… with a shot of milk?”
“Aint that a very long Mac?”
“Who you call’in Mac!, Buddy! Shut it and just make the coffee.”
See what I mean just freak’in strange.
Then there is the 3/4 long blacks, coffee shots first “Americano”. Boiling water first then coffee shots, just a long black?
So what do you call a long black?
Cafe Latte just means coffee with milk, this is a coffee that should never be crap.
Often people come in and order a latte, which I have done often in the past and still do at times… but really we are just asking for milk, which is just a bit wet.
One of the hardest things is getting the temperture right. Some want it HOT, HOT, HOT other, like me want to taste it all in its glory.
For more information
have a look here.
The BEC has two freshly laid eggs, from just down the road at Waterloo, our yummy ham and cheese to just make it perfect.
The Roast Vegetable Sandwich
If you looking for a sandwich to fill the “The great Vegie hunger inside” this it!
One of the Clematis (Huldine) flowering when it is not suppose to be.
Looking back towards the back door of the cafe, via our tomato and salad boxes. Graeme is the local gardener who has kindly give us sugguestions from time to time and so we pay him back by making fresh salads from the garden, seasonal of course!
So here is the plan… we will update, upload and spurt out various bits and pieces each week so that we and you can have a record of the food, people and events that wander through and past Sparrows Cafe.
