The Emporium, Parramatta | Review
The emporium has a fully indoor area and a pretty outdoor (but covered) outdoor area, we were seated inside but try and get a table outside as it has a nicer vibe. The cafe smelt delicious and the dishes around me were making me hungry! I love a good savoury breakfast but was craving something light and sweet so picked the ricotta pancake with berry compote and honeycomb butter and the deconstructed iced chocolate just because I was curious.
Emporium allows for bookings for brunch (which runs until 3pm!) which I think all cafes should do. Today I drove to a cafe 30 minutes from home to be told the wait would be at least 45 minutes. Be and everyone behind me in the line to be in the line immediately went elsewhere- take bookings cafe so we don't have to gamble that we can be seated! Rant aside, having a booking meant we were seated straight away.
