In September, Cooper City gained a brand new cafe, Effe Cafe, that’s sure to satisfy all kinds of people with different cravings. Those who are lucky enough to give it a try will find the location inside a Marathon gas station on Stirling Road, making it easily accessible.
Effe Cafe is located on 10295 Stirling Rd., Cooper City, Florida 33328. While it’s surrounded by other fast food companies such as Wendy’s and Dairy Queen, it has several components and offers multiple flavors that make it unique and satisfactory to its customers.
The food is clearly a main factor in any restaurant and this cafe does not disappoint. Effe Cafe offers a wide variety of all kinds of food, from empanadas to burgers and even pastries. Their main menu is split into two categories: breakfast and lunch.
The food is clearly a main factor in any restaurant and this cafe does not disappoint.
For breakfast, the options vary from a deluxe breakfast burrito which contains several breakfast items that people can’t get enough of, to sourdough toast with numerous fresh vegetables such as tomatoes and green onions.
For lunch, the menu is even broader and diverse with options ranging from a juicy burger to a buddha bowl that includes brown rice and the customers choice of three vibrant vegetables with dressing. Customers can see their meals being made by hand by the culinary chef, which can attract them to the cafe.
When it comes to beverages, this cafe does not hold back and is sure to give every customer a delightful drink to refresh them and quench their thirst with exhilarating flavors. On the front counter, they offer fresh-squeezed orange juice and a tasty mango lemonade.
Additionally, they treat their customers with their very own coffee and smoothie menu. If a customer needs some caffeine, they can choose from a menu that includes espressos, iced coffees, cappuccinos and more. Their smoothies have multiple options of fresh fruit, such as strawberries, mangos and blueberries.
However, the service makes up for the small space by how lovely the staff is.
Unfortunately, the location being in a gas station causes the overall cafe to have some limits. This includes the size of the eatery, since it’s extremely small and might even be considered claustrophobic to some. It also means a limited amount of workers, consisting of the owner, Patty Lopez, who is a marvelous baker and a culinary chef, among others.
However, the service makes up for the small space by how lovely the staff is. As soon as the customer walks through the door, Lopez is there to greet them with a warm smile and ready to take orders with a positive attitude. Customers are able to take their time looking over the menu as the staff is patient and puts effort into the consumers’ orders.
Overall, Effe Cafe is a warm, easily accessible eatery that will leave every customer walking out with a smile and a feeling of satisfaction.
- Variety of delicious food.
- Staff radiates positive energy.
- Easy to access for a quick run.
