TLC Cafe, Wollongong NSW

Eggs Benedict with fresh and yummy cherry tomatoes and herbs.

There can be Eggs Benedict in so many versions, but that morning I realised I had a good looking , flavourful version on the table.   The garnishing also stood out and the bread nicely toasted.  The Hollandaise sauce stood out.  A bite on one half led to a gratifying taste on the palate, the eggs particularly good.The coffee is strong but hearty.

An option for a hideaway seating.

There is a large fern leaf incorporated into the bricked wall along a narrow enclave on one side of the back of the cafe.   Even if the space is compact, I noticed regulars heading straight for this alcove-like
corner.  The beauty of this is that this is smack in the middle of Wollongong city centre, a stone's
throw from the IPAC auditorium and across Burelli Street from the Council.   If you like, you can enter through a lane beside Lee & Me Cafe on lower Crown Street.

Emphasis on coffee but also a practical menu for breakfast, brunch and lunch.

What seems to be city centre workers come in and out regularly even early on a weekday morning.
The menu is limited but easy, all for daytime snacking or a meal.  There are sweet stuff in the lit display.  The sunlight is kept out on the bricked plaza outside, whilst inside it is a refuge in a cottage surrounding.

The coffee blend is in house.   The staff that day were friendly, smiling and passionate about their business.   It is relaxing to come to this cafe whether for a short while, a take away or to linger on a while more.  The street is not in your face, the barista is knowledgeable and the rustic feel envelopes you with a comforting embrace.

The TLC Cafe is located at Town Hall Place, Wollongong NSW.
