When your university campus is situated only 15 minutes away from Newtown, you know it’s going to be hard to lose that winter weight gain. I could eat in moderate amounts but when food is so glorious, how can I possible say no? I remember this day so vividly. I had just received some bad news and to help cope with the negativity, Kelly and I decided to eat my sorrows away. Mind you, to prepare for this food baby, I had been eating healthily for the entire week so, I guess everything eaten during this slump is warranted? At least that’s what I tell myself to override my guilt.
Anyway, Kelly’s been here a few times and loved it but had only tried some of their little knick knacks at the counter and didn’t actually sit in for a proper cafe luncheon. So, we thought we would take the opportunity to try it out. We both arrived about 1PM but came in at just the right time as we settled nicely at a table by the window before a surge of other customers came bustling through.

I loved the interior of the cafe. It was cozy, easy on the eyes and oh so hipster. But, isn’t that part of Newtown’s charm that gets people coming back? Now enough talk, lets get digging into the good food goodness!

Kelly on the other hand, opted for the ‘Slow Roast Pork Belly Sandwich.’ I loved the presentation of this dish. Served on a small wooden board, just seeing it was appetising enough. I’ve had my overload of pork belly sandwiches/ crackling over in London but couldn’t resist a little tester. The pork piece I had was succulent and full of juicy flavour. The crackling, crisp, crunchy but there was not enough of it from what I saw. I can’t give an in depth of the sandwich as a whole as it was not mine to judge but, since Kelly and my little food date, she’s talked about this sandwich again on numerous occasions so I think it was safe to say, it was a winner.

In terms of pricing, I would say it’s pretty standard for cafe food pricing. The servings are quite large and I think would be very satisfying if you ever have time for a visit. It’s a lovely place to catch up with friends with outdoor seating if you fancy some sunshine or indoor seating if you prefer something more cozy. Service was delightful and genuinely enjoyed everyone’s feedback while paying at the counter. I thoroughly enjoyed my first experience at ‘Hoochie Mamma Cafe’ and can’t wait to go back to try some other things on their menu.
