Ham & Cheese Croissant and Bacon & Chives Scone from Lumine Coffee

Happy Sunday! After the reflective and heartening Easter Sunday Mass, my husband and I craved a warm and inviting atmosphere to unwind. With its reputation for delicious coffee and inviting ambiance, Lumine Coffee seemed like the perfect destination.

Stepping inside, we were greeted by a delightful surprise. The cafe, while spacious, bustled with activity. The air vibrated with conversation and the intoxicating aroma of freshly brewed coffee. It was a scene that felt both energizing and comforting, the perfect post-Easter pick-me-up.

We settled into comfy seats, eager to explore Lumine's offerings. For my caffeine fix, I opted for an 8oz mocha. The rich, chocolatey flavour perfectly complemented the smooth coffee base, creating a delightful, warm beverage. My husband chose a 6oz flat white. The smaller size allowed him to savour the complete flavour profile of the espresso.

For food, I gravitated towards the classic ham & cheese croissant. The buttery, flaky pastry was a delight, but the real star was the cheese. Melted to an ooey-gooey perfection, it oozed out with every bite, creating a textural and flavour explosion that was simply ridiculously good.

However, the true winner of our brunch date was my husband's choice — the bacon and chive scone. This unassuming pastry turned out to be a revelation. The exterior boasted an unexpectedly crisp texture, offering a delightful contrast to the soft and savoury interior. Each bite was a symphony of flavours and textures—the smoky bacon, the fragrant chives, and the buttery scone — perfectly balanced and utterly delicious.
