Little Sisto is one hidden gem located in the middle of the Doubleview suburb. As Gen and I lived in Woodlands, it was really good to see a nice little cafe close to home which was perfect for our catch up over brunch. We arrived just in time for brunch (Brunch is served from 11.30am-3pm) on a weekday and the cafe was not too busy. Little Sisto also has an alfresco dining area, which is currently pending approval to operate from the council of City of Stirling. It would also be nice to dine and sip a coffee outside under the blue sunny sky.
For brunch, I had the Eggs Benedict ($15) with poached eggs, leg ham and housemade hollandaise on sourdough. As you can see from the picture, the poached egg test has been passed with flying colours. One knife through the poached eggs and wow. Orange liquid with full of yummy goodness oozing out. It was perfect. The hollandaise sauce was light and creamy, complementing well with the tasty bacon. Everything on this plate just goes so well together. Oh and not forgetting about the soft and fluffy sourdough too. YUM!
Gen had the Thyme Roasted Mushrooms with parsley, lemon and Persian fetta on multigrain sourdough ($12.50). Here’s her review of her dish: The salty and creamy feta cheese was a nice accompaniment to the mushrooms. However, there could have been a little more lemon juice to balance the creamy richness of the cheese and the olive oil, as I only tasted it on a few of the mushrooms. I liked the dish overall, but would have liked another piece of the lovely sourdough bread to feel more satisfied! Service was friendly and fast and our plates were cleared quickly.

Gen and I had a great time catching up with each other while indulging in some delicious food for brunch. I had to agree with Gen that the service was quite friendly and accommodating; making sure if everything was alright so far and if we needed anymore coffee or drinks. I would really love to try breakfast at Little Sisto and their cakes on display one day, so yes, I’ll be back. To fans of coffee, Little Sisto also serves good, quality coffee, using Five Senses beans. What’s the best part of Little Sisto? The food, coffee and for me, it’s close to home.
