Review - Kansas City Shuffle

Alex Harmon seemed to pick up some free babysitting with her review this week...

Down the business end of The Rocks you’ll find a hole in the wall café that looks like it has been plucked straight from Surry Hills. Outside you can order from the ‘Little City Window’, from stuff like P. B. & J. Toasted Sandwiches ($7.50) and House-made Doughnuts ($4.50) but it’s worth getting cosy inside on the recycled oak furniture.

The extremely charming owner, Ben Sweeten, a veteran of hospitality (this is his seventh cafe) quickly makes you feel at home.

As it’s brunch, we go for Beef Brisket Waffles ($20) with smoked chilli butter and a poached egg – Parks & Recreation fans should appreciate this marriage.

The Quinoa Salad ($17) is crunch and tasty, but a little too goats cheese heavy for me.

The celebrity of the menu has to be the Fried Chicken Sandwich ($17) served tall on a doughnut bun. No, this isn’t riding on the coattails of those omnipresent freak-shakes, this is a sweet brioche-style bun that also houses ‘slaw, pickles and jalapeno aioli – effing epic.

Coffee is from Single Origin and you can get a clairvoyant reading for $15. “Self-taught,” winks Sweeten. With plans for a bar next-door, according to my own crystal ball, this may be one of 2015’s most exciting openings.
