There is a new cafe in Wilston and it is known as Freja's Cafe! First heard of this place from fellow Instagrammers and finally made my way there not only once but twice so far. Street parking is quite plenty and this cafe is around the corner and fairly recognisable. The design is fairly modern and almost Scandinavian like.
On my first visit, I had their 'Eggs Benedict' which consisted of poached eggs, crispy bacon, hollandaise, herbed pesto, smoky crumble on sourdough bread. Freja's cafe served one of the most beautifully presented plate of meal and you can feel guilty by destroying the art... Everything on the plate was just perfect and well balanced, from the perfectly cooked poached eggs, to the crispy bacons, and the pesto adding some balance to the hollandaise sauce, and textural component from the smoky crumble. Delicious!

I brought Mr on a weekend, which can be quite a wait (took us about 30 minutes) but thankfully the meals did not disappoint again. This time I ordered the pancakes that came with strawberry gel, dried strawberries, cream cheese and I think strawberry parfait, with fairy floss. They were just so good... Usually the Mr is not a sweet tooth person, but he gave two thumbs up!
As for himself, he had the pulled beef cheek and macaroni croissant with fried egg. Gosh, it was too good to be true. The beef cheek very tender, and not dry at all and the meal itself tasted spectacular. It is definitely a heartier meal and after the long wait, we do not mind the extra calories...

Besides these meals, they do sell some freshly baked goodies and I will have to return with Grace next time to try some croissants! I have not had such good breakfast/brunch for a long time and this place is definitely a must try! Besides that, you always get lovely smiles from the members there and I think particularly the lady boss, maybe?
