Once & Again is a quaint little cafe on Marion Road in Plympton Park. It’s one of those multi-purpose businesses that is also a gift and book store. As far as food goes, there is an all day continental breakfast menu, light snacks and a selection of sweets behind the counter.
Once & Again is not your typical cafe by all means. They’ve taken the Suspended Coffee initiative to the next level by also allowing customers to purchase meals for a friend, someone in need, or for someone the staff thinks is deserving. All money from the unclaimed food and drink at the end of the month is then donated to charity.
For lunch, I ordered the Filo Spinach and Fetta Quiche. Not only is this place charitable, but they also support local businesses with their food menu. The quality of the quiche was good. The quiche was soft and delicate, and encased in a light golden brown flakey pastry. Served with a fresh salad with vinaigrette dressing, and one could only feel content.
The cafe owner, Judy Forbes, is one of the friendliest people you will ever meet. With modern contemporary surrounds, a relaxed atmosphere and cheap food that is of a decent quality, there is very little to fault with this place. On top of that, they’re also giving back to the community.
If you’re in the area, give this place a go!
