This is not really a foodie review! It’s more a way for me to collect pretty photos of food, so I can be inspired to recreate them at home haha!
I recently caught up with some girlfriends (and our swarm of kids) and went to Fika on Brix, Beckenham.
It’s a bit out of the way, but it is right next to Mills Park Centre, a huge reserve, nature play space, playground, piazza and skate park, soccer, footy oval, and tennis courts (you have to pay to hire the courts though).
It’s a perfect place to take primary school aged kids and teenagers, as you can sit back and enjoy a cup of coffee and the kids and run off and play. It’s probably not a great cafe to take toddlers, as you’ll be chasing after them the whole time (it’s huge playground!), unless you like drinking your coffee while standing, or maybe your kid actually sits still while in a cafe?!
We had coffees and milkshakes all around.
My girlfriends ordered Trio Garlic Mushrooms, Vietnamese Coconut Poached Chicken Salad , Shoestring Fries and Curly Wedges.
I pretty much wanted to eat everything on the menu. I wanted to try the Smashed Avocado, Eggs Benedict, Chicken Katsu Bao, Waygu Burger… but in the end I ordered this:
Brioche French Toast, two slices of brioche French toast, black sesame custard, lemon curd, homemade granola nut crumble.
It was really yummy! I found the custard a bit sweet for my tastebuds, but my kids loved it. I really liked the granola and lemon curd too. It was all good.
It was a lovely spot and I can’t wait to go back to try more food!
