I have been wanting to go to Cottage since I saw the very aesthetic pictures of it on Instagram.
Finally on 18th of April I found the opportunity to visit the café and just like in the pictures it was an exquisite sight to behold. It has a Greek and Mediterranean vibe which I absolutely loved. This place is definitely on my list for shoot locations.
Most cafés with aesthetic indoors usually lack in the department of taste. In the age of Instagram, I guess, indoors and plating matter more than food itself. Not for me though, and I have to say after a series of average tasting dishes at cafes and restaurants, the delicious dishes of Cottage were a pleasant surprise for my taste buds.
Starting with the garlic bread which tasted absolutely amazing to the Penne Alfredo, which was the first time I genuinely enjoyed eating white pasta. For my beverage I had Ferrero Rocher shake (because every time I see it on the menu, I can’t help but order it.) and to my surprise it had a hint of mint in it. In all fairness, it was indeed mentioned on the menu, I just didn’t read that far. The mint didn’t taste as out of place as I expected it would with chocolate.
I also did order Caeser salad, because unlike most people I actually do like how salads taste, but I never got it. After a while of waiting I decided to just cancel the order but turns out the waiter hadn’t even placed the order for the salad. If I wasn’t already full on the very delicious pasta I would’ve been a little mad but since things worked out just fine there’s no point cribbing about it.
All in all, it’s a really pretty place with food that tastes above average. Perfect for brunches, has both indoors and outdoor seating, great location for shoots and perfect for friendly rendezvous.
If you’re in the city, I would totally recommend visiting the café.
