Pinkie Cafe, Ivanhoe

Pinkie is located just off the main road, Upper Heidelberg Rd and there’s ample parking and they’re all free on the weekends (SCORE!). It gets quite busy so make sure you have your patience pants on because it can range from a 5 -30 mins wait. But while you wait, you can check out all their delish desserts and sandwiches in the cabinet!

When we finally got a seat, we went straight for the thickshakes! Mr D got the cappucino thickshake and oh my frigging gosh it was totes AMAZEBALLS! Very caffeinated (the way he likes it) and it was just absolutely AMAZING!

Cappucino Thickshake – $9
Espresso, cocoa, ice cream, milk

I got the oreo thickshake and this too gave me a mouthgasm! Very oreo flavoured and not overly sweet, it was rich, thick, creamy and oh so delish! It was the best thickshake I’ve ever had!

Oreo, ice cream, malt, milkĀ 

Now on to the food! The sushi bowl was super duper fresh and everything went so well together. The yuzu ponzu was in a container separately so you can add it however much or little to your liking. I definitely recommend this dish if you are looking for something healthy, fresh, flavoursome and missing a bit of Japan.

Sushi Bowl – $19
Salmon, brown rice, avocado, daikon, edadame, poached egg, ginger, nori, kewpie, yuzu ponzu

Mr D got the bacon cheeseburger and found that it was quite greasy overall but the wagyu patty was cooked perfectly and was oh so succulent. The chippies weren’t crunchy at all and were quite soft and needed more seasoning. Unfortunately, Mr D was a touch disappointed with his dish.

Bacon Cheeseburger – $19.50
Wagyu, bacon, green tomato, cheddar, chips

To finish off our brunch date, we got the sweet n’ salty pancakes which had honey ricotta, dulce de leche, bananas and raspberries. The pancakes were super fluffy and quite sweet and I was not complaining at all. I loved having the bananas there too. However, I did find that it was quite dry overall and was struggling to finish it.

Sweet N’ Salty Pancakes – $18
Whipped honey ricotta, salty dulce de leche, banana, raspberry, white chocolate crumbs

Mr D ended his brunch with a latte and he was a touch disappointed with it too. It wasn’t strong or full bodied and it wasn’t hot either.

Latte – $4

Pinkie Cafe serves up a mean thickshake and sushi bowl so don’t forget to get that if you drop by! It’s also very kid friendly and had colouring sheets and crayons on hand for little kiddies coming to brunch.
