So I’ve been to Barry a couple of times (read about it here) and without rehashing what I’ve previously written, take my word when I say it’s pretty awesome. I’ve never had a bad experience and I really can’t fault their food or coffee offering. They have one of the best superfood salads in town, their tomatos and peanut butter on toast is the bomb and their ricotta hotcake is better than any others.
For me, the drawcard has always been the hotcake and let me just say their current offering, apple crumble is by far the best to date. It’s fluffly, moist and literally melts in your mouth. You know it’s a good hotcake when it’s moist without even adding any additional syrup. The apple was cooked perfectly and tasted delish, and the crumble was just awesome. The only downside (if I have to find one) was that there wasn’t more crumble on the plate because it was so good. It was so filling but I just kept on eating regardless of the fact I was bursting at the seams.
I could forego any other hotcakes in favour of this one, that’s how good it was. I’m even thinking of a return visit in the next week. Holy moly people, it’s gooooood. So cancel this weekends brunch plans and make a bee line for Barry, you can thank me later.
