Coffee roasts on Upper Thompson
Upper Thomson is no stranger to the hipster café – and Pacamara fits right in the ’hood. Floor-to-ceiling windows allow sunlight to drape over the minimal (if a little sterile) interiors of white walls paired with white tabletops, but it’s still a cosy-enough spot for catch-up sessions with friends over brunch.
Highlights include French toast with caramelised apple chutney ($16.90) and crab rump eggs Benedict topped with bonito flakes ($19.90). And that’s not to mention the many pasta dishes available all day – dive right in and order our favourite plate of the lot: the duck pappardelle ($18.90). A selection of cakes such as the yuzu tart ($6) will tempt you at the till, but order it beforehand to enjoy with a cold-brewed coffee ($6) or a bold, nutty Roadster blend ($4.50-$6). But if you end up missing the boat and visit at dinnertime instead, the tenderloin with foie gras and truffle mash ($32) will exorcise those #fomo demons.
