Post Cafe - Marrickville

We were on the way to an epic meat factory in Alexandria and decided to stop close by for a quick bite. We opted for the Post Cafe in Marrickville, which self-claims to have the 'best coffee in Marrickville'.

Hubby went for a chocolate thickshake. It was ZOMG deliciousness! Gloriously thick and luscious, super ice-creamy and chocolately. 2 more please!

I wanted their coffee so skim capp it was. The campos coffee hit the point. Creamy, smooth and aromatic.

Food-wise, hubby ordered a beef burger which came with chips. The chips were golden and crisp and fluffy and close to perfect! I wish I could say the same for the burger. Hubby was thoroughly disappointed - the patty was a bit dry and tasteless. There was a massive blob of beetroot but hubby would have preferred that the normal slices of this vegetable.

I ordered a penne pasta with smoked salmon, capers, dill, horseradish cream and shaved parmesan. It was really good for the first few bites. Unfortunately, the flavour soon got too rich and one simply cannot, cannot stuff more into their stomach.

The food at this place was so so but the drinks were delicious~ I would come back here for the thickshake alone!
