The breakfast special on offer was the combination of poached egg board with avocado, tomato, ricotta and sourdough toast ($14.50). Our waiter graciously acknowledge our request for scrambled instead of poached and a short time later a board of fresh elements was served. The scrambled eggs were cooked through nicely and lightly seasoned.
First on the breakfast menu is the ever-popular eggs Benedict served with free range eggs. Versions available include ham, avocado ($14.50 for either) or smoked salmon ($16). The serving size was quite substantial and the ham version arrived with toast below (as well as on the side), a layer of rocket and plenty of ham. We found the hollandaise sauce too thin and lacking flavour but the rocket was a pleasant addition and we were overall happy with the dish.
Other delectable-sounding dishes on the menu include fresh fruits with gluten free muesli and yoghurt, honey and berries ($9.50), macadamia muesli (toasted, natural or gluten free) with fresh apple juice, honey, yoghurt and berries ($8.50) and roast tomato, goats cheese, basil, pesto & olive oil on toasted sourdough ($10.50).
With a whole counter filled with sandwiches and sweet treats we decided it was our duty to leave room for something else. The lemon tart was very delicate with the crunchy texture of coconut throughout. The sweet icing was a delicious touch. The caramel slice should definitely be shared as it is very rich. It has a light and airy biscuit base.
Premade sandwiches include fillings such as tuna, tomato, fetta mayonnaise, dill, onion and capers, leg ham, gruyere cheese & Dijon mustard, poached chicken, slivered almonds, chives, salad, mayonnaise & celery and roast beef, Dijon mustard, tomato, Swiss cheese, caramelised onion & rocket ($9 each).
