Restaurant Review – iCafe (Kilmarnock)

This review is from a meal we had at iCafe, King Street, Kilmarnock on Tuesday 2nd July 2019. Enjoy!

Before we get started check out this menu, I wasn’t happy with the photos I took of the menu so I had to take the menu off their website instead so some of the prices may be out of date, but I’ve put the photos in so you know what’s on offer.

Turkey rasher and cheese Bagel/Sun-dried tomato and cheese bagel with Salad
Tom: So I decided to treat myself and get two bagels, one with Bacon and one with Sun-dried tomatoes, both with cheese. I’ll talk about both of them now. The turkey bacon is superb, and more health conscious than traditional bacon. Plus I at least can’t really tell the difference. It’s also nice and thick. This one In particular goes well with the coleslaw I was served.

The cheese on both was melted perfectly, but in particular on the bagel with the tomatoes and together they made some wonderful flavour. Both bagels had bite to them but weren’t too thick or crunchy so you could enjoy the filling just as much as the bread. The Salad, was fresh and tasty with a nice dressing, and I was given a little bowl of olives, which usually aren’t a favourite of mine but tied the whole thing together really well.

Mexican Roasted Chicken Panini with extra cheese
Tori: It was well made and very spicy, I’ve had it before and every time I get it I forget how spicy it is and I burn my mouth, but I keep getting it again because it’s so delicious. I asked for it with extra cheese because I like my meals cheesy and then were happy to do that.

Dessert –
Pink and White coconut Slice
Tom: Soft and incredibly moreish, I could eat about a dozen of these, and well worth the cost, if you buy one thing from this review, I’d be forced to say get this.

Drinks –
Butterscotch Latte
Tom: Delicious! The cream blended perfectly with the hot latte, the butterscotch sauce also added a lot and of course a nice jolt of caffeine for the reviewer on the go.

Oreo Hot Chocolate
Tori: It was very good, it was creamy and perfectly sweet, where I didn’t have to put any additional sugar in it. It was also well presented which is a plus for me.

Staff/Service –
Since my first visit the staff at iCafe have been nothing but courteous to a fault, cheerful and willing to listen to me prattle on, so well worth a visit just for the staff really, but they really do put that little bit extra into their service. Everything came out promptly and well presented, and was brought right to the table as well.

Bonuses –
I don’t want to keep starting these bonus sections by talking about Pokemon Go in case anyone thinks this is Sponsored content but if you are a fan of the game there are two Pokestops and a Gym, right outside, you might need to move a little for the gym but the stops are easily spinnable from inside or outside the cafe. Next up are the facilities, which include bathrooms and baby changing and of course the I in iCafe comes from Internet, they provide computer access and printing facilities all for a small and reasonable charge. The music, which is picked by the staff is also good, nice ambient noise that provides an excellent backdrop to your dining experience. They have indoor and outdoor seating, which means you can sit outside and enjoy the sun when it decides to show it’s face and they even provide a complementary dog bowl for water, to serve thirsty dogs. So they manage to take care of their customers whether they have two legs or four.

We have eaten at iCafe before and have personally enjoyed the Peri-Peri Chicken Pizza, the filled baps (rolls) with Bacon and/or scrambled eggs and some delicious drinks such as the Maltesers Hot Chocolate and the Pumpkin Spice Latte.
