Take a stroll on a Saturday morning through Roma Street Parkland, and you’ll find a corner cafe brightly muraled with a goat and a brekky bagel. You’ll also most likely find a small crowd waiting outside for a table at the neighborhood favorite, but believe me, the wait is well worth it.
Scout is about as hipster of a cafe as you’ll find. The menu is filled with unique tonics, fresh juices, and quality coffees. Peek at the food menu and you’ll find an ample amount of avocado and interesting names for garnishes. The cafe itself is decorated with mismatched tables and art, and features goods from local artists to purchase. Of course, there’s some hanging plants too, because can you even call it a cafe these days if it doesn’t have some good plant life?
If it’s all sounding a little pretentious, have no fear: Scout balances it all with an authentic and down-to-earth atmosphere. Paired with the rustic design and amazing scents, you feel immediately at home, as if you just stepped into some kind French grandmothers home. The staff is incredibly helpful and friendly, and it’s evident that they enjoy working at Scout.
The only downside of Scout is the struggle you’ll face trying to decide what to order, so if you find yourself gaping at the menu, here’s a few suggestions:
So next time your friend hits you up for some laid-back brunch, head to this lovely cafe where they serve it all day. You won’t leave disappointed, and you definitely won't leave hungry. I swear it on scouts honor.
