The General Sherman, Murdoch
When my friend David asked me for a catch up, I suggested the General Sherman café especially since I’ve been wanting to try their summer bagel that I stumbled upon when I was browsing Instagram. General Sherman is located right next to the entrance of the Wexford Clinic at St John of God’s new building. Parking is available on site and the first 30 minutes are free.
David came together with his pregnant wife (Caroline) and mentioned to me that they frequent the Wexford medical centre for the pregnancy check-up. However they usually went through a different entrance that led them to the nearby Coffee Club.
We found a seat quite quickly considering we came during the peak lunchtime. The staff was really friendly and even though they were busy, they still managed to pull a smile and served us politely.
Caroline chose the readily available pulled pork and roast vegetables from the servery while David and Jeremy went for the pulled pork burger with chips. I chose the Summer Bagel (yay).
The summer bagel was really refreshing especially with the caramelised apple slice inside it. I would love more of those apple slices! This bagel was made from pumpernickel bread and consists of shaved Melosi Ham, caramelised apple rings, refreshing berry relish, cream cheese and spinach. The dense pumpernickel bread is quite similar in taste to rye but it has a tiny bit less calories and will marry well with thinly sliced smoked salmon.
Jeremy and David enjoyed their pulled pork burger while Caroline really loved her roast vegetables. The lunch meal definitely had a good generous portion as you can see from the amount of pulled pork inside the burger.
Similar to Timber Cafe, the General Sherman used wooden alphabetical letter as the table number. I waited for quite some time for my Chai Latte but was happy with the taste of it. Unlimited tap water also available at the cafe.
Everyone was satisfied with their meal and we all had a great time catching up at The General Sherman. I know for sure that Caroline will go back to find The General Sherman's famous cronut next time she's due for her pregnancy check-up.
