Indigo is a cafe situated in Double Bay and is known for the great people and car watching views it provides. We came here on a Saturday morning to celebrate a friend’s birthday and saw so many Porsche cars parked outside (one day…) and PR Queen Roxy Jacenko is said to be a regular of the haunt so were excited to try out one of the best eastern suburb cafes.
The first dish we ordered was the pancakes which came stacked three high and with caramelised banana, maple syrup & vanilla whipped mascarpone. Indigo has the reputation of serving up some of the best pancakes in Sydney and they definitely did not disappoint! The pancakes they were so fluffy and rich, with the maple syrup adding moisture and sweetness to the dish, evened out by the creaminess of the light mascarpone. Definitely a dish to share, we could only manage one pancake each.
The second dish we ordered was the corn cakes with spinach, bacon, dill aioli, mint yoghurt, sumac, pomegranate, cucumber & tomato salsa. We were very pleased with the serving size of this and the corn cakes were light and fluffy, and the smokiness and saltiness of the bacon was balanced out perfectly by the sweet tomato salsa and pomegranate.
The third dish we ordered was the sweet potato cakes with poached eggs, hazelnut & pistachio dukkah, lemon & chilli labna, cracked wheat & smoked salmon. The cakes were cooked perfectly and retained the flavour of the sweet potato and this was nicely contrasted with the smoked salmon and labna.
The last dish we ordered was the spanish open omelette – spinach, chorizo, prosciutto, red onion, roasted peppers, persian fetta & olives. This was the least standout dish, the omelette was kind of bland and there was not enough chorizo to give the dish sufficient flavour.
Overall, we enjoyed our experience at Indigo. Most dishes we ordered were tasty and they had great serving sizes. A great local Double Bay cafe to try but get here early because its very busy on weekends!
