You’ve probably driven past The Rare Pear Café on Logan Road plenty of times and noticed it filled to the brim with people. There is a very good reason for this and it's as simple as great service divine food.
It's easy to see why The Rare Pear Café is popular once you peruse through their all day breakfast menu, extensive smoothie list and various sweet treats made by a professional pastry chef. They also offer catering for functions and hold special themed dinners throughout the year.
The most popular item on the breakfast menu is the Bacon, Egg and Haloumi in toasted Turkish bread with tomato relish, rocket and herb aioli. This breakfast sandwich is stacked with so much bacon, it is a dream. The tomato relish is a great twist on a typical breakfast sandwich as it adds a homely flavour.
For those with a sweet tooth - look no further. Pancakes are on the menu but these aren’t any ordinary pancakes. They are fluffy, Ricotta Stuffed Pancakes with salted caramel, house-made honeycomb, vanilla ice-cream and chocolate curls. This dish is as extravagant as it is delicious. The flood of salted caramel will have you drooling way before you even get it in your mouth. The pancakes have crispy edges and are bordering on being a cake. Eat the honeycomb with ease because although it is yummy, it sticks to your teeth! It is a big plate so this dish also works well as a shared morning or afternoon tea.
If you do want to opt for something smaller, the Organic Middle Eastern Fruit Toast with house made jam or lemon curd is phenomenal. There are different fruits and spices than your ordinary fruit toast. The slices are thick and are toasted to perfection.
So, join the crowd on the weekend or drop in during the week for a quieter session and see what all the fuss is about.
The impressive all-day breakfast menu is filled with various options to cater for everyone. The Rare Pear Café is a serious cafe.
