After a morning run on a gloomy Saturday morning takes us to a brunch outing at the new café in town. We’ve heard about their good coffee (here) so we knew the no coffee on weekends rule would have to be broken today.
The menu is known to use local and organic produce. With this, their menu changes regularly but hey, at least you know you’re getting fresh, seasonal ingredients! And of course, this ensures you keep coming back for more noms AND their good coffee too :D
|Salted of roasted beetroot, herb pumpkin, green beans, watercress, caramelised almond, coddled quail egg, mascarpone with lemon, honey dressing $15|
For starters is the beetroot salad; there is a lot happening with the dish but that’s what makes it so yum! Besides, anything caramelised can make any salad dish pop!
|Roasted leg of lamb with chimichurri sauce, fresh tomato, corn kernel, grated cheese, caramelised onion on rustic panini $16|
|Banana, nutella and ricotta with roasted almond on tortilla $8.50|
To top off our brunch, a last order of the banana and nutella tortilla was inevitable. The ‘healthy’ dessert dish gives you just enough satisfaction, without making the morning run a total guilt trip.
Note: anything with bananas is healthy (school did teach us it is a rich source of potassium) plus all the nutella goodness of course!
