Espresso and Matcha's Foodie Odyessy - Sydney - Day 2 Breakfast : Cafe Cre Asion


Our second day in Sydney started with a breakfast at the very popular Cafe Cre Asion, which proved very difficult to find in Alberta Street. Once there, it was hard to miss, due to the amount of people there, with some tables and chairs spilling onto the streets.


Of interest, the tables and chairs were both very short, which meant leaning over when we had to eat our food.

 

The menu was provided, and we noted the savoury foods up for order, but the objects of our desire were to be found elsewhere.


After doing thorough research online, we had our eyes set on the numerous matcha and earl greay themed cakes, tarts and fondants.


Before sweets though, we did order a sandwich, because it was still breakfast. With that our Tomato, Mozarella and Avocado sandwich came. Whilst the fillings were refreshing and quite tasty, the bread was infused with quite a fruity flavour, which caught us both off guard.


Our cakes and drinks came not long after.


We both had matcha lattes, which were served in very traditional looking wooden bowls. I really appreciated the freshness of the matcha, especially the fact that they were both made without sugar, so that we could adjust to our liking. It had a smooth creamy texture, but was probably one of the strongest matchas I've ever tasted. 


The swiss roll was just as intense. With its colouring, you could see that the matcha was very strong in the roll. The cake was light and fluffy, whilst the filling was generous and rich. 


Our last cake for breakfast was the Matcha Fondant (also know as lava cake). Keeping in mind we already found the flavours in the swiss roll to be strong, this cake blew our minds. It was a matcha powdered chocolate cupcake on the outside, but inside was super intense matcha lava. To top this off, there was also a little cup of extra matcha to pour over, and some fruits in jam as an accompaniment. The cake itself was considerably denser, and tasted akin to a brownie without the nuts. I really enjoyed the filling, and it complimented the juices of the strawberries and blackberries wonderfully.
