Before the mini-human I had perceived dining locations as “child friendly” being those happy to accommodate littlies and their associated unpredictable behaviour and noise levels. Now that I am parent to a just-four-month-old, what I specifically look for are places with a nice level of background noise, quick service, plus seating to allow for rocking of Petit Monsieur in his pram. Until he is able to sit up and consume a range of food other than the human milky variety, his dining experience is limited to being through vicarious observation only.
Our second visit sees us sampling a few items from Coco Cubano’s tapas selection. The standout is “Beef Mini Sliders” ($10.90) with patties full of umami punch and sandwiched with sweet, almost jammy, caramelised onion. Whilst we have no complaints about the “Mini Americano Hotdogs” ($9.90) nor “BBQ Corn Cobs” ($8.90) ordered as well, we find the tapas items a teensy overpriced for their size especially when compared to those at breakfast.
As the weather gets cooler I’ve got my eye on trying their single origin or couverture hot chocolates as well as more from the all-day breakfast menu. (I spy pancakes!)
