Assagao has seen a boom of high-end cafes & restaurants in the past few years. So, when I was looking for a new breakfast place & came across Bloom & Brew, I decided to give it a try.
It ticked all the right boxes for me, open air, chilled vibe & a good looking menu. I decided to take my little dude on a breakfast date, so being just two of us we didn’t order much.
Decided to go with the Bloom’s Avocado toast which is a visually stunning plate, with edible flowers & The Very Berry Pancake with sour cream & a berry compote & a smoothie each.
The avo toast was nice, its on sourdough bread but for me, personally, not something really mind-blowing, as I make avocado toast at home all the time & it was pretty similar in flavour to what I make myself. I wouldn’t really order it on my next visit. Though visit again I will, coz I wish I went with what first caught my eye, the breakfast lasagne. So definitely going back to try that out.
The star of the meal was definitely the Very Berry pancakes. Seeing the pancakes when the plate reached the table had me wishing I was the type who could eat something sweet for breakfast.
Being a sucker for sour cream though I did tuck in once my avo toast was over, just couldn’t resist, though Azariah did the plate justice.
I would also recommend their smoothies, I chose Tropical Dreams, which is mango, pineapple, orange juice, coconut water & turmeric & I loved it & Azariah went with the Strawberry Fields, which is banana, strawberries & Almond milk.
Overall, I’ve found myself a new breakfast place other than my regular spots Kefi, Artjuna, Baba Au Rhum & Mojigao.
Pay them a visit they just might pleasantly surprise you.
