Hidden away behind Subway on Woolley Street in Dickson is Kickstart Espresso, a new cafe offering Toby’s Estate coffee, breakfast toasties and bacon and egg rolls, smoothies and healthy sandwiches and rolls. You’ll notice the cushioned wooden crates and beautiful wooden tables outside.

Kickstart Espresso insideThe cafe is tiny with only two small tables that fit inside. The outback theme is prominent with rusted metal sheeting lining the bottom of one wall and the R.M. Williams signage.

Kickstart Espresso menuI decided on the breakfast special of a bacon and egg roll + smoothie for $15. My choice of smoothie was the Red Berry with strawberry, banana, yogurt, maple syrup, skim milk and cinnamon. The smoothie would’ve been better with ice as it got warm very quickly. I was asked what sauce I’d like with my bacon and egg roll – BBQ sauce of course!

Kickstart Espresso is open from 6am-3pm. I forgot to ask which days but you can contact them or check out their Facebook page for more info.
