FACTS: Located in Old City, Philadelphia
WHAT I ORDERED:
Pesto Omelette: Pesto, Olives, Fresh Mozzarella, Tomato
Homemade Hot Chocolate
We recently dined here for brunch and I ordered the Pesto Omelette. It came with an Israeli salad, Greek yogurt, and freshly baked bread. In spite of being a fan of both omelettes and pesto, I did not care for the pairing of this union. Nor, did I care for the mozzarella stuffing and will stick with sharp cheddar going forward. However, partiality aside, this dish was bursting with flavor, and the presentation was lovely.
Thankfully, my fiancé ordered their fantastic House Special: Shakshuka. And, on this rare occasion, sans any photos, it’s equally important that I mention this dish as well. For those of you who are unfamiliar with this Middle Eastern dish, which was also new to us, it contains three slowly cooked poached eggs (which I ate around) in a homemade tomato sauce. And, based on their four different Shakshuka styles to choose from, Lloyd selected the Morrocan, which is prepared with three eggs, chicken, and green olives. In summation, it was the perfect cold weather remedy and I will be sure to order it the next time.
Speaking of a cold winter’s day, I also ordered a cup of their homemade hot chocolate. Mixed with chocolate, brown sugar, and cinnamon (just to name a few of the ingredients), it completely hit the spot and exceeded my expectations.
Café Ole is truly a great neighborhood spot. Packed with locals, it serves delicious and unique dishes, along with being incredibly affordable. I highly recommend checking it out.
