“Mothers day brunch”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 13 May 2012

My daughter and I had brunch at Alto today, busy place and we didn't book. We arrived at 12 and the lovely young lady let us have a table that was booked for 1pm. Very friendly staff. Cabinet food was plentiful.

We ordered off the menu, which was well priced and had a great selection. We had the mothers day special, raspberry pancakes. These were so yummy! Light & fluffy. It was also nice to see a healthier option of pancakes served with natural yoghurt and maple syrup served on the side, which was delicious and left us able to put on how much we liked :). We also had the home made muesli which came with honey, fresh fruit salad and yoghurt. Fantastic, all the flavours went together beautifully and it was so fresh and crunchy- best muesli I've had!!!

We both highly recommend this Cafe! It also features in this years entertainment book which was a added bonus! Alto - keep up the great work!
