Swedish Tarts

There are plenty of restaurants and cafes at Semaphore.  This one stood out because of the blue and yellow sign.  We drove past this cafe a few times, and it is always busy, whether inside or seats outside the cafe.  It is not a big cafe, a few tables outside, and a couple of low seats looking onto Semaphore road and a few tables inside.  It was a warm day, so an iced frappe was first on the list.  There wasn't very much taste to it. It seemed like an iced chocolate to me.  Definitely wasn't one of my favourites.

Delicious crepes!!

I have had many crepes in Adelaide, but mainly on the sweet side.  Not many savoury ones.  But I have to say that this was one of the best savoury crepes I have tasted.  There were literally layers and layers of smoked salmon.  It was definitely very filing.  Everything was just so fresh and went extremely well together.

The scrambled eggs didn't have much taste to it, although it was sprinkled with chilli and coriander.  I still had to top up the dish with extra salt.  The eggs weren't as fluffy as I had wished.

There were a lot of homemade pies, the thought of mushrooms and leeks sounded nice. There was a special on the blackboard, your choice of pie in tomato soup for $12.  Pie in soup was what we called a pie floater.  It looked quite amazing, but the look of this dish didn't last long.  As soon as we dug into it, it looked like a mess but don't get mistaken.  The pie was amazingly good.  You could see the bits of mushrooms and leeks, not mushed up unlike other pies.

One good thing about the cafe was that breakfasts were served all day, you wouldn't need to get up extra early just to have the items on the breakfast only menu.  A place that you can sit down and relax, chill out and sit for as long as you desire.  I will definitely go back again to try out more items on their menu.
