Hub Fine Foods is my favourite local cafe. In fact right now I'm wondering why I haven't done a review on it earlier. It's almost as if we go there so often, I didn't bother taking photos but this little cafe is well worth telling people about. The name 'Fine Foods' is probably a little deceptive because if you're expecting gourmet meats and fancy omelettes you will be disappointed. This cafe however is nothing short of a great eat at a fantastic price. It's come a long way from the deli that used to be. With fresh looking tables, chairs and sofas, a clear view of the counter where delicious pies, pasties and cookies are displayed, the lovely red and white theme works perfectly. There's canvases on the walls of London and it really does give a lovely feel.

They serve breakfast all day with the usual bacon and eggs, ham and cheese croissant, omelettes and big brekky right through to any sandwich/roll/double cut roll you can imagine. The list is virtually endless and if that's not enough there's always chicken burger, steak sandwiches and hot dogs. Even if you just wanted something simple, beans on toast is available! Wedges and chips for sharing are also on the menu
Their drink list is just as impressive with all sorts of teas, coffees and milkshakes. I must commend them on their milkshakes and the value for money. It's a fantastic milkshake and really, you actually get two glasses. They fill your glass and give you the other half in the metal shake cup all for $4.00. Not sure if it's a smart business decision but it keeps customers happy. Mocha milkshake is my favourite.

On this occasion where I remembered my camera, we had Hot dog special with bacon, cream cheese and BBQ sauce. It's not a gourmet sausage or anything, just your good old frankfurter you get in NY style hotdogs but when packed with bacon, cream cheese, sauce, mustard and onions, it's the kinda snack you need when you've got $5.50 to spare.
|Hot dog special $5.50|
Their steak sandwich isn't shy of a good feed either though not particularly gourmet. I'd like my onions cooked and caramelized a bit more but overall it's a satisfying lunch and the steak wasn't tough of chewy. Oh and who doesn't love a good old ham and cheese croissant!

All in all this place is great value for money and a nice comfortable place to catch up with friends. The girls there are great and provide good service. Next time I'm there I'll get more pictures. I'm glad this is not very far from us because it's great for those mornings or lunch times where we just can't be bothered.
