Six Degrees Mini-Review
What’s with Indoooropilly lately, seriously? Why is it so hard to find a place for coffee after 9pm on a weekend? When I’ve seen a movie and stuffed myself with candy, sometimes I need a little pick-me-up before I head home.
There is one salvation, in the form of Six Degrees. It’s one of the very few places in the area that have lengthy opening hours. It’s also very nicely decorated, has a massive menu, and friendly wait staff.
I went there for coffee the other day (this is what unemployed people do. We drink coffee when we should be job hunting. We play The Sims when we should be updating our resume). I got a little distracted by the menu-pizza, pasta, Vietnamese food, crocodile, salads, kangaroo, salmon-what don’t they do, seriously? Plus, they have breakfast until 5pm. Respect. Don’t let the varied menu put you off-last year I ate there several times and it was always good.
The coffees were good, and came out quickly. The OJ got a thumbs up too, although the sipper said it probably came from a bottle. The mango smoothie caused a bit of commotion. This is what happens with my friends: I ask a simple question (“How is the smoothie?”) and a drama ensues. Smoothie Girl said it was “very yogurt-y”. Was there real mango in it? “Smell it! If it smells like alcohol it’s mango essence!” another declared. So we all poked our noses over the glass for a whiff. Verdict: real mango.
Some may remember the place when it was Saints and Sinners. It’s changed hands several times since then (with a few hairy results), but I think they’re on to something promising now. Indro isn’t the most inspiring suburb, but the decor in this place is lovely-cushy couches, a balcony area, and big paintings on the walls. They’re licensed, and have a big range of reasonably priced cocktails, beers, and wines. My memory needs refreshing, so I plan to chow down on something there soon. If you don’t check it out yourself first, watch this space!
