We started off with some in store made spelt cracker made with olive oil, sesame seeds, linseed, chia seeds, sunflower and pepita seeds. They tasted buttery and morish. I wish they delivered to my house on a regular basis! We dipped these in a variety of dips; babaghanoush, tzatiki, and hummus.
Omelettes, bruschetta, granola, big breakfast, baked eggs – they have something for everyone. A great weekend brunch option is the French Toast #cheatday. A generous serving of this sweet bread topped with marscapone, maple syrup, and a berry syrup, it worked well together and looked beautiful on the plate!
We also tried the wagyu beef burger as a lunch option a nice burger made up of; a soft milk bun, swiss cheese, caramelised onion, lettuce, tomato, with a delicious and beautifully cooked homemade beef pattie served with house made relish and baked potato wedges. The wedges were so crispy and I like that they were baked. There’s also a veggie burger, bacon or cheeseburger if you prefer. Salads, paninis, lasagne and sliders were also an option.
For drinks we tried the Italian hot chocolate; a thick dark decadent hot chocolate, topped with edible flowers, so rich and beautiful! We also had a latte, compete with latte art and shared a brewed chai. They have a range of loose leafed teas and milkshakes.
When we thought we were finished, we were lucky to sample a variety of their home made pastries, brownies, carrot cake and more. You can certainly tell the difference when the food is freshly made in store – soft and pillowy and we loved these! In fact we took some home for later! They also offer gelato for those of you that love that sweet hit.
