Looking for a fabulous place to enjoy breakfast this weekend with the family. I am going to let you in on a most fabulous secret. Do yourself a favour and head to The Missing Piece Café located in Macquarie shopping centre, North Ryde. Don’t let the words ‘shopping centre’ deter you. This café has certainly found its MISSING PIECE. Since its opening in October 2014, The Missing Piece Café has been quick to become an institution on the lower North Shore for all lovers of quality brew (coffee that is).

Siblings Matthew, Sarah and Brendan Aouad of The Vogue Café are infamous for their decadent milkshakes. Look out Willy Wonka, make room for Billy Bonka. This decadent creation of Oreo cookies, snickers bars and waffles is sure to set even the sweetest of sweet tooths buzzing. Looking for more inspiration, check out their latest compilation of recipes in their recently published book ‘decadent SHAKES’.

The Missing Piece Café is set under a sunlit atrium, funky tunes can be heard as one is captivated by the incredible rich coffee aroma creating a warm inviting vibe.

Pull up a chair at the coffee bar and enjoy the show unfold. As the staff create milkshake masterpieces, magnificent mocktails and cold brew ice teas.

The All Day Dining Menu has proven to be a crowd pleaser with its many loyal customers. Smashin and Smokin – smashed avocado on soy/linseed sourdough, topped with marinated-wood smoked salmon and a splash of lime and olive oil. Hits the spot every time.

Or perhaps the Sliding Start will set you on the right track for the day. With four sliders filled with Pancetta, Ricotta scrambled eggs, baby spinach and the chefs tomato relish.

This sibling trio seem to have found the perfect balance of ingredients to create such an institution as The Missing Piece Café. The energy is always buzzing, as the staff serve to the beat creating an atmosphere of theatrics whilst continually being attentive to their loyal customers.

Before leaving, you just may be tempted to grab a little treat, word on the street is the cronuts are hard to beat.

During your next shopping spree at Macquarie Centre, STOP! REFUEL! and ENJOY! the show at The Missing Piece Café. There is no Missing Piece Here.
