Hey Novocastrians,nwb_grey3  

This is a favourite post from May. This is such a favourite, my brunch crew have been back many times. I hope you all enjoy the review and go try out The Locale for yourself.

The Locale is in New Lambton, 28 Alma Rd, can't miss it!nwb_grey1

 

On COFFEE

I initially bought a cappuccino and To bought a piccolo. I hate to say it and maybe we were a once off but we had quite average coffee. This was disappointing, however the juice and smoothie we got afterwards made up for it!! To got the Cappuccino Smoothie and it was AMAZING! I got the Super Healthy juice, AMAZING. Even though this section rates coffee the other beverages bumped up our coffee rating for The Locale to 7/10.

 

 

On FOOD

The Locale had a really great diverse breakfast and brunch menu. We were pretty hungry so we got our food we were really happy. It was big and looked delicious, and oh it was! I got the Shakshouka: eggs poaches in sauce of tomato with a hint of chilli with sourdough on the side, DELISH! To got a breakfast platter, nice assortment of food with sourdough. When we went to pay we also say a sizable cabinet with delicious looking small sweets. A must try later! Overall easy 9/10 for food.

On ATMOSPHERE

The Locale had it own hipster feel to it. It had a funky antique shop turned cafe vibe. A mixture of high tables, casual seating out the front and tables and chairs. Sitting outside you got to soak in the Autumn sun, or if you needed some shade you could sit under cover. We really enjoyed The Locale's style. We rate their atmosphere 5/5.

BRUNCH BREAKDOWN

Overall we highly recommend breakfast at The Locale. We are looking forward to going back there soon for their amazing juices, smoothies and their DELICIOUS breakfast. We enjoyed the whole vibe it had going on. Overall we give The Locale a rating of 21/25.
