Cafe Guilia

Oh I’m sorry! I didn’t know this was a convention of musos and arrr-tists. Will have to slip into my best art critic disguise, consisting of a beret, slim fitting black and white thick horizontal striped long sleeved t-shirt, similarly fitted black pants and Italian black leather loafers. Ok maybe not so extreme but a seriously trendy young crowd that habitats the Chippendale area does flock to this place, as Trekkie fans would swarm to a site where Mr Spock was giving away autographed and certified used under garments as worn on the show.

Should Café Guilia be a contestant on “The Apprentice”, there is no doubt that it would receive the bad hair cut Trump of approval for how this place has targeted and catered for its customers. Business built on a Bonds simple wifebeater product: quality, reliable, affordable, perfect for a suburb filled with uni students and young professionals. Side seamless trunk comfort in the platinum undershorts grade omelettes of smoked salmon or chorizo, salty yet light and fluffy and fried til a nice golden brown, served with fresh lettuces and a couple of slices of rye bread. More choice than the female panty catalogue and equally as tasty, for something a bit lighter try the selection of muffins including a haloumi, egg, spinach and tomato. Continuing with the savouries, casa rolls of a peculiarly strong beetroot and sour tasting lamb, fetta and yoghurt, or interesting grilled chicken, coriander, mayo, lime and chilli, bagels, Turkish breads and various fillings, major meats burgers and pastas, salads and soups. Pancakes and waffles also available. You’d have to be a food scrooge to not find something to like here. Need to wake up? Get bouncy with the bowl of coffee at $5 or the brilliant banana smoothie with nutmeg, buttermilk, honey sweetened.

Clearly plenty of reasons to check out Guilia, not just the sight of Leonard Nimoy handing out g bangers. It’s revered and loved as a café dream turned into reality and built a reputation that’s spread throughout the Chippo galaxy.
