Bohemia Cafe and Bar

The Bohemia Cafe and Bar is not the new fave.

Whilst the decor itself is quaint, cosy and eclectic, the staff were not very welcoming or helpful when we entered the cafe.  Being a cafe, I did not expect first class or table service, however I did expect at least a smile in exchange for a $30 breakfast. The price of the corn fritters (albeit with a side of hash browns) and a small skinny latte quickly jumped to $30 after the 'public holiday' surcharge was applied, which we were not told about until we got to the register and which was applied even though technically Saturday was not a public holiday.

The breakfast itself was okay but nothing special.  I had the corn fritters with beetroot relish, pancetta and smashed avocado.

The breakfast came out looking as pretty as a picture. Unfortunately, the pancetta tasted like plastic and the corn fritters were pretty dismal -  just three floury pancakes with a couple of bits of corn in them - being the star of the dish they failed to shine.  However, the eggs were perfectly poached and the skinny latte was rather delicious.

Whilst there were definitely positives to the dish (and overall cafe) and I may have just caught them on a bad day (they were rather busy), this is not a place I would recommend to friends travelling to Warnambool.

Food: 2.5/5
Decor: 4/5
Service 2/5
Total: 8.5/15
Verdict: Don't bother
