If you’re looking for a great place for breakfast and an even better place to relax with a cocktail in the evenings, then check out Epilogue. Located on Todd Mall in Alice Springs, it combines hipster coffee culture with a shabby chic cocktail bar, complete with chandeliers and a great tapas menu.
Our first encounter was for Saturday morning breakfast. We perused the menu of Mexican-style breakfasts and both settled on the breakfast burrito. After we ordered our food and coffee, we sat outside in the toasty sun.
The coffees were surprisingly fast to arrive, and Juz’s soy latte was topped with the most delectable layer of microfoam. Dave’s macchiato was fantastic too. Expectations were high for the food.
Shortly afterwards, our burritos arrived. Two halves stacked on top of each other, stuffed with scrambled eggs, bacon, guacamole, salsa and beans with a side of chilli sauce. While there was definitely enough food and it was well prepared and presented, Juz was hoping for a little more POW from the chilli sauce and the guacamole, but putting her fussy tastes aside, it was a good breakfast.
The second time we went to Epilogue, it was to meet up with Amanda and Gary from Travel Outback Australia. We had a wonderful night of conversation, food and wine. The first thing we sampled was the espresso martini. This was absolutely delicious and set us up for the rest of the night. We also ordered two pizzas – the mexitarian and duck pizza. These were absolutely fantastic in flavour and valued at $16 each. We also got some nachos which were fresh and great to share, as well as some pork meatballs.
We visited a third time when our friend Jenny from Lorella Springs was in Alice Springs for a day. We took her to all the important places like Mount Gillen, Anzac Hill and the Reptile Centre, and before dropping her off at her hostel for the night, we took her to Epilogue for a drink while the open mic session provided entertainment.
