Station Street Cafe

Station Street in Nunawading has some intriguing shops that are well worth a visit. There is the wonderful retro shop full of interesting clothes and collectables as well as the second-hand bookshop that is crammed full of books. Further along is the Station Street Cafe which we had hoped to be as delightful as its neighbours. Today we thought we should try it out. This cafe is surprisingly large as it goes a long way back. It has a very cool vibe with tapas and music offered on Friday nights. Something to remember... Well, today we are after some lunch. The breakfast menu unfortunately is only served until noon so we had to choose something from the lunch menu. I considered the Warm quinoa salad ($16.00) with roasted pumpkin, orange, chick peas, walnuts, and spinach. Instead I decided on the Lentil Burger ($16.00) with zucchini, aubergine, peppers, turmeric, yoghurt, and onion rings. This was tasty except the couple of onion rings placed above my burger were made with the very outer layer of the onion. You know the stuff that you are meant to throw away... Thus the onion rings were extremely chewy and an unpleasant addition to the meal. My friend chose the Semi-dried tomato and caramelised onion tart with a fresh ricotta, basil, and cashew salad with salsa verde ($12.00). A tiny, empty shell of very hard pastry was filled with the ingredients named above as well as the salad. Although small, it did taste good apart from the pastry. Our lattes ($3.60) were not startling either. Maybe they were just having a bad day or the regular chef and barista were on holiday... However, the service here was very good but I don’t think that I will be returning anytime soon.
