Two Foreshore cafe — named after its street address — sits right along Geraldton’s central waterfront. We sat outside and the view was top-notch. I could have been served old-shoe stew and I would not have felt I had wasted my morning. Given their prime real estate, I expected their offerings to be expensive and average, something like the crappy fish and chip shops on some Perth beaches, where a cup of soggy chips and a melted-then-frozen- again Paddle Pop cost the same as a week’s rent. On Wednesday morning, I was delighted to be proved wrong. The menu at Two Foreshore is colourful, healthy and cheap — like, proper cheap. Not an item over $14. My date and I ordered two double-shot cappuccinos, mine with soy and his with regular milk. They were delicious and came out swiftly. Two Foreshore uses Bonsoy milk — the creme de la creme of milk alternatives in my opinion. I have been to the cafe a few times. No matter whether it was 6am on a Wednesday or 10am on a Saturday, the service was always super speedy. This time was no different. I ordered a rainbow bowl with quinoa, spinach, beetroot, carrot, red kidney beans, fresh tomatoes, sesame seeds, parsley, and balsamic dressing — and some avocado for good measure. It was very healthy, and afterwards I went to the gym for the first time in two months. Coincidence? I think not. My heart was telling me it would have been better with feta cheese. But my body was telling me it was better without it. The light and crunchy dish would be perfect to munch on while rollerskating along the foreshore in a bikini. The meal was super gram-worthy too, so, keep that in mind if you are about to enter a personal hot-girl summer. My dining companion ordered the chicken focaccia with feta, semi-dried tomatoes, spinach and pesto mayonnaise. His first words after digging into the dish were: “Pesto is never bad”, and that the bread was crunchy and delicious. He also said the flavour palate of his focaccia lacked some punch, which made me realise I could not taste the parsley in my dish. A few more herbs, spices or a hit of garlic might have improved both meals. But the bill came to just over $35 for two. For that price, it would be amiss to expect a culinary genius pushing flavour boundaries from the venue’s tiny kiosk kitchen. Any reasonable person would want a simple meal made with decent produce. Under that assessment metric, Two Foreshore goes above and beyond.
