If you’re like me and stalk the Instagram feed of a café before visiting, you’ll be excited when you feast your eyes on the colours that pop from the rainbow of the fresh fruit and granola bowls, the purples, pinks and organs from the extensive range of juices and smoothies, as well as the contrasting greens, yellows and reds from the kale, avocado, eggs and bacon. With senses heightened and tummies grumbling, my little family arrived were not disappointed.
Despite being on the main road in Mosman, the canopy of trees and the little park next door disguise this perfectly. Nothing was too much trouble at Bloom. The staff were lovely, quickly bringing out menu’s, colouring in for Miss 2.5 and our drinks order. They have a huge drinks menu full of fresh juices, smoothies and gelato milkshakes. Our green smoothie and ‘Fruity’ summer juice were perfection as we sat outside in the morning sunshine. Well, I can only go by the small taste I actually got, as little miss decided my juice was now hers and drank it all before I knew it. She then followed that with a babycino, complete with marshmallow.
They have a small kids menu for breakfast and lunch. Miss 2.5 got the vegemite toast soldiers with a boiled egg (which came with a cute hat, which has little miss in hysterics). It must have been good as I’ve never seen her eat so much food. The baked eggs with beans and haloumi and ‘Balmoral’ (smashed avo with eggs, feta and cherry tomatoes on toast) were delicious and fresh.
The café has a small selection of toys to keep little ones entertained, plenty of high chairs and a large disabled access toilet (though no change table unfortunately).
If you’re in or around Mosman, or on your way to Chowder Bay for a swim (as we were), this is a great place to stop in for breakfast or lunch on the way.
