Neighbourhood Gems: Juniper Cafe & Bistro
One Saturday a few weekends ago, Dan and I decided to check out Juniper Cafe & Bistro for a relaxing Saturday brunch. I had been there a few months before for a hot chocolate on a wintery day. The space is beautiful and bright, a variety of food options (snacks, meals, and desserts) with lots of options for drinks (including alcoholic). It's located in a strip mall in the Strathearn area, so it is super close to where we live.
|A variety of desserts (gluten free included) under glass domes and in the fridge.|
On the Saturday we visited, Dan's eye was immediately drawn towards the Specials Menu which included a Guinness Steak & Mushroom Savoury Pie. I, on the other hand, debated between having one of the grilled cheese options or a hand held bennie.
In the end, I opted for Juniper's Handheld Bennie while Dan stayed true to his first choice.
Dan really appreciated the fact that all the menu items were made from scratch and quickly polished off the savoury pie that had a hint of guinness beer marinade with a flaky pastry top.
