Foam Café – Alice in Wonderland Meets Dorothy

Walking in the door of Foam Café is a bit like stumbling down the rabbit hole and into the Mad Hatter’s tea party. Its higgledy piggledy décor is designed to boggle the senses – every time I go I find something new hanging from the walls. It’s playful and fun and makes me feel that way too!

Just off the Italian Quarter, there’s plenty of space for the gang on Foam’s upstairs sofas, but I popped in today for a bit of down time. It was perfect as the vibe is home from home. Foam from home – ha ha… And I enjoyed some pink goss from next door – thanks for the entertainment boys!

I ordered a latte – I’m a tea lady but Foam’s coffee has converted me – and the open smoked salmon sandwich. Melting into a sofa I picked up one of the many art tomes strewn on my table and munched my lunch at leisure, for that’s the only way to do it in my book. Foam is as good a spot for a solo munch as it is for meeting the gang.

Soft walnut bread spread thickly with cream cheese, and fish layered generously with capers sprinkled on top. I love those salty little devils! The main bite was accompanied by a delicious salad of carrot, coleslaw and mixed leaves. Fresh figs were an exotic touch. A lovely place to lapse into an afternoon carb coma.
