Cafe Checocho’s name is a combination of chess, coffee, and chocolate in case you were wondering. Three wonderful things you can always find at this West End cafe. You are sure to come across the owner, Jeff Watson, serving up a delicious cup of coffee on your visit. He’s great so make sure to say hi!
The food was hot & fresh. We devoured the Big Breaky with free range poached eggs, mushrooms, chipolatas, tomato relish, homemade hash, and turkish bread AND the smoked salmon w/ free ranged poached eggs, grilled tomato, rocket, dill aioli, and sourdough bread! Amazingly good! The salmon is a nice lighter option and they even cater to vegans. The vegan breakfast includes - truffled mushrooms, grilled tomato, avocado, wilted spinach, beetroot relish, & sourdough bread.
Checocho is the spot for everyday people. We went on a sunny Saturday morning and we came across a lovely lady enjoying an ice coffee outside with her puppy dog. Inside the restaurant were a couple of fellas reading a newspaper, enjoying some small talk, a coffee, and a yummy breakfast. It is definitely our kind of place! We know you will enjoy it so much you’ll want a piece of it! So grab one of the $2 dollar books off the shelf to serve as a reminder of one of the best breakfast cafes in West End!
