Ever been walking your dog in complete contentment and the sweet, strong fragrance of coffee grabs you by the shirt and almost drags you towards it? Your feet begin to turn in that direction. No matter the weather, who wouldn’t enjoy some delicious caffeine to kickstart one’s day? You tie your fuzzball outside. You’re about to head inside when your sweetheart whimpers to accompany you. And that’s the moment, you’re torn between two loves. Puppy or Coffee? Well, have no fear, Sodi is here! Named after the owner’s beloved chihuahua, Sodi caters to not only your tastebuds but also your pooch’s.
The café has combined the two ingredients of love and produced many masterpieces. We’ve all been to cafés where coffee, muffins and cupcakes are “the Shiz”. But have you ever heard of a “pupcake”? How about a puppycino? Sounds interesting! Well, it sure is. It’s a dream come true for all coffee and dog lovers. Grab yourself a nice, hot cup of Ocean Grind – their speciality – and cruise through your daily chores; have some yummilicious enthusiasm pumped in your veins! It’s rightly given the title of liquid gold.
Need some grub to curb your hunger? Whether it be Southern Fried Chicken and spicy Potatas Bravas or their famous Shakshula and Sambal Chili Eggs, you’re definitely in for a treat. At Sodi’s, they know just how to combine flavor and health in the perfect package! A Sticky Pulled Pork Wild Rice Salad, Southern Fried Tofu and Sweet Potato and Halmoumi Fritters…have your pick! Disappointment is a word that is as good as non-existent in the Sodi dictionary.
They’ve rightly identified their House Triple Choco Ganache Donuts as the right fit for their #tootytuesdays. It’s the go-to place for cheesecake lovers. Housemade White Choco Ganache cheesecake decked with their famous lemon meringue or perhaps their simple but power-packed White choc Strawberry cheesecake…the only trouble at this place? Making a choice! Their Housemade Cheesecake Donuts will have you tripping over your feet to get some…#sodinotsorry! It’s a playground for anyone with a sweet tooth!
After a nice long walk, it’s the place to pamper your pooch, and relax for the evening. Let your darling fuzzball enjoy his “puppycino and chill” while you enjoy a warm meal. And the best part? It’s open seven days a week! Grab your Ocean grind and perhaps a fresh Lemon Curd Donut. Ugh! I can barely stop myself from running into the store myself!
The Café has won many hearts, both people and pooches, in a short span of just over one year, having opened its door to customers in September 2018. No wonder they have been highly recommended as the Best Licensed Café, at Golden Plate Awards.
Located at 149 Pakington Street, their trading hours are Monday to Friday 7am to 4pm and on the weekends 8am to 4pm! This place surely has rewritten the definition of love.
Call on 0415 659 002 and grab a muffin or two!
