Coffee Darling, South Yarra

I hadn't realised till I got inside that Coffee Darling, 2 Darling Street, South Yarra, Tel +61 3 9867 2488, is the latest member of the Cafe Racer franchise. Same people. Same coffee. Same food. Same look. The only thing missing was the usual crowd of lycra-clad cyclists.

Since I was in the mood for eggs, I went with the only egg option, namely poached eggs on toasted ham, cheese and tomato (sourdough toast, of course). A tried and trusted Cafe Racer classic. As you'd expect from any well-run franchise, the Coffee Darling version was true to the original, and most enjoyable. The use of juicy, full-flavoured tomato makes all the difference.

The eggs themselves were OK, but nothing to rave about. One of mine was hard. The Genovese coffee, on the other hand, lived up to its usual raveworthy standards.

The real problem with Coffee Darling is the lack of choice. Put simply, you can have the poached egg thing, bircher muesli, toast or a few pastries. That's about it. Then again, if you suffer from menu-anxiety, this place might be just what you need.

14/20 "Cafe Racer III"

Hi there,
The bread that Coffee darling use to put under their eggs is actually not a sourdough. It's a Tuscan style bread called Pane Toscano from Phillippa's Bakery.

The Genovese coffee at Coffee Darling, the quality produce and sensational personalities together with consistancy of product and service have guaranteed me as a regular.

The place always attracts lovely ladies... enough reason for me to come and get their coffee (which is good by the way)!

That's true, I agree with you:)
I'm blogging about franchising, recently I've written an article about coffee franchises.

What makes it great is Bill and Faye - always happy to have a chat and make you feel at home. A coffee, lemon curd tart and some gossip - great way to spend an afternoon.
