Robocog in Surry Hills

July 20, 2014  •  Leave a Comment

Yesterday I spent most of the day in bed watching movies and bad Youtube webisodes. It was a mixture of being slightly hungover and the gloomy Sydney winter weather that kept me under the covers. Today I willed myself out of bed early and to my yoga class - and somewhere between the downward dogs and triangle poses I decided to make a change in my life.

I have decided to adjust how much time I spend with my electronics. Today I haven't watched any television on my computer, I ran without my music, and I took a walk through the park without my camera. It was a lovely experience. Instead of television I went on a run, during my run I discovered I love hearing myself think without loud upbeat music drowning out my own thoughts, and with no camera in hand at the park I was able to simply enjoy the views and sights without worrying about the best angle to capture them from.

But just like I don't believe in dieting I don't believe in completely unplugging, I want to make sustainable changes. So, don't worry I am not swearing off movies or picture taking, but I do hope to make better choices about how I spend my free time. 

OK, moving onto the main point of this blog post - Robocog! This cafe was suggested to me by some friends a few weeks ago and today I finally made my way over to give it a try. It is pretty clear why it is called Robocog, as the owner collects all these robot figurines that are displayed about the cafe.

The menu features all-day breakfast items, house specials, and a variety of burritos and quesadillas. I ordered one of the specials: corn cakes stacked with avocado, bacon, salsa, aioli, rocket, and a poached egg on the side.

In case you can't tell from just looking at it... I can confirm that it was absolutely delicious. And for less than $20 I was quite pleased (in Sydney a meal like this would typically be $20 or more). Just note that this cafe is cash only, so don't be like me and have to run down the street looking for the nearest ATM.
