Escaping the city centre for the afternoon, yesterday I had a fabulous lunch with a friend at Little King cafe in Milford. Similar to its sister cafe in Herne Bay, Dear Jervois, the menu is interesting, diverse and has something for you, whether you’re a waffle eater or more akin to a cave-man.
To my pleasure, summer is still lurking around, so we sat outside and can officially say it was a great place to hangout and talk for hours. Both of us ordered the well balanced organic, free-range chicken salad with poached egg, pan-fried courgettes, onions, caramelised beetroot, wild rocket greens, raddichio and pecorino cheese ($18).
There was a bit of a hold on the food, as we weren’t the only ones who thought it would be a good idea to head out for lunch. However, the staff were very friendly, took our order quickly and were happy to organise drinks for us while we waited.
I am told that the coffee is excellent and the cabinet is always filled with an amazing selection of cakes, slices, filled sandwiches, brioches and other such options – which, by late afternoon, had almost all been cleaned up.
A cafe with a solid menu, unique interiors and a welcoming vibe, I would visit again.
