Cafe Otto - Glebe

For a breezy brunch, Cafe Otto in Glebe was visited. Hosting a variety of food on their menu, it was a bit of a task to decide what to have... breakfast? sandwiches/burgers? pasta? seafood? At the end, hubby decided on a steak and I on a baguette.

Our pineapple and mango frappe came, glass overflowing, with icey goodness and a strong pineapple flavour. There was a hint of mango in the mix but pineapple was the predominant flavour. It was coolly refreshing.

Hubby ordered the smallest steak (250g) and opted for mash and veges with it (mainly cos I like mash :P). He wanted the steak cooked medium... but unfortunately, it was more medium-well/well-done. Hubby still thought it was tasty enough. I liked the mash - sooo creamy and buttery and unhealthy but soooo yummy.

My choice of a smoked salmon baguette was ordered with a side of chips. There was smoked salmon, cos lettuce and cucumber in a super fresh and soft and slightly warm bread roll. It's advertised promise of avocado was scarse to non-existant whilst it's 'wasabi mayo' was wasabi-less. Nonetheless, it was a good delicious roll. The chips were also reasonably good, crispy and crunchy on the outside...each one being quite short but consistent, and not overlly deep-fried or burnt or oily. Nice.

All up, I think it was a relatively good brunch. If you're sitting outside in their courtyard, remember that it's still a smoking zone (but compared with being stuck in a ventilation-less tiny shop with loads of smoking businessmen, it was relatively tolerable).
