Ray’s cafe by Katherine
Back then it was really good and healthy. I wonder if it is the same now.
I was in Brunswick for an International student training session hence I decided to visit Ray’s. Ray’s is right near Brunswick station and it is about a five minute walk from RMIT Brunswick campus. I was going to visit Lux Foundry but couldn’t find it.
Ray’s is a very small but cozy cafe. Like some of Melbourne’s cute cafes. But I think that the people there (with the exception of one lady) were a bit too hip and loud for me. The workers I mean. The customers were fine for me.
The music was just a tad too loud for my liking.
But the food and the iced coffee made up for it. I had the poached eggs on Turkish bread with baked beans, feta and red onion jam ($15). The poached eggs were nicely done. Even better was the Habenaro sauce (complimentary- had to help myself to it). The red onion jam had that really nice homely feel to it. But I think the beans, although homemade were just a tad bit overcooked. In fact the feta melted and I could hardly taste it.
I also had a friand ($1). This was really really lovely. In fact this was the highlight as it was homemade and freshly baked.
My cold drip coffee tasted a little bit weird with the coconut ($6). It was just a tad too sweet. In fact the coconut distilled some of the strong bitter flavour to it.
I wouldn’t come back for the coffees, but maybe just for the yummy and healthy lunch and breakfasts.
