This little café on Rock Bay Rd. is the epitome of a “hole-in-the-wall, didn’t know this was here, man this is good” kind of place. It’s a motorcycle repair shop come café come funky hangout spot. Their menu is limited to a few starter items such as mac and cheese, four different sandwiches, and an ice-cream sandwich for dessert. They’re licensed too so you can enjoy a double Caesar out on the sexy Astroturf covered patio (yes that’s right sexy Astroturf, hey at least that’s what they thought in the 80s) while enjoying the pasttime of Rock Bay people watching.
I ordered the pulled sesame chicken sandwich ($9). It was prepared in about 5 minutes or so and was served to us on a wooden cutting board. The sandwich was packed with meat, and the toasted ciabatta bun it was served on was crispy, fresh, and not too chewy. The Siracha aoli had a great smokey flavour to it and the chicken was beautifully tender. My only comment would be that I would have liked a bit more slaw or another acidic element to the sandwich to cut the richness a little and to add another dimension of flavour. However, overall I really enjoyed my sandwich and I’d love to go back to try one of their other offerings.
