Fynn’s is a new all day dining café at South Beach Avenue. It has great looks, an interesting menu, good service and an inviting atmosphere. It opens early and serves good coffee by Common Man Roasters; and stays open till late in the evenings and offers beer and a good selection of wine by the glass or bottle. We enjoyed a weekend brunch at Fynn’s Café at South Beach and it is going to the top of our list of favourite new cafes.
Fynn’s Café at South Beach Avenue has an outdoor seating area that looks very casual, with camping stools placed round planter boxes that double up as tables. It is a unique spot for that dine on a terrace experience where you can watch the passersby.
Walking through the doors of Fynn’s Cafe, we said to ourselves, “If we open a cafe, this is how we like it to look.” The interior of Fynn’s has beautiful lighting and fittings, interesting furniture and judicious use of plants and accent pieces. It is a perfect combination of chic and trendy and warm and inviting.
Behind the salad counter is an open kitchen where you can see the chefs’ dedication and skill.
Fynn’s menu looks simple but it is really an all day dining menu which includes some interesting and imaginative dishes. There are also cakes and pastries that you can pick from the counter. Here are pictures of Fyyn’s regular menu as well as the Weekend Brunch menu.
We visited Fynn’s Café at South Beach on a weekend and ordered the Stuffed French Toast ($19.50) and the Pulled Chicken Pita ($17). A long black was $5. No GST would be added to the bill but there would be the 10% service charge.
We did no have to wait long before the coffee and food came. While we waited, water was offered and served. The staff were friendly and attentive. On the whole, the service level was commendable.
The French Toast, stuffed with cheese and bacon bits, was served with tomatoes on the side. Having seen many extravagantly decorated dishes in many cafes recently, the Fynn’s French toast appeared very plain and ordinary. The portion was a sensible one. The savoury, sweet and tangy combination of the dish grew on us. The blend of eggs, bacon, cheese, carbohydrates and vitamin rich tomatoes was wholesome and satisfying. We enjoyed the plain looking dish.
The Pulled Chicken Pita was served with a good helping of salad and a colourful assortment of root chips. The pita bread was filled with chicken, hummus, lettuce and cranberries which were dressed with a light sauce. The simple dish was delightful and delicious.
We finished our brunch with a piece of Coffee Almond Cake ($4.50) with a scoop of Gelato ($4.50). The gelato was rich and felt soft and creamy in the mouth. It was delicious. The cake was quite ordinary. The coffee, using beans from Common Man Coffee Roasters, was rich and robust – very enjoyable.
Overall, Fynn’s Café at South Beach is a chic and trendy cafe with an inviting atmosphere. We had a delightful meal at Fynn’s. It was a very pleasant and comfortable place we enjoyed and would be visiting again. We must include Fynn’s in our list of top new cafes for 2016.
