I was on my way to Leo’s Fine Food & Wine when I noticed a cute cafe just over from the Hartwell Station. Blue umbrellas and rows of pot plants adorn the outside of Fordham’s Milk Bar.
All the tables were taken outside today so we decided to
sit inside at one of their beautiful mosaic tables. It would be the perfect
place to visit with your little ones as there is a playground over the road. I
can’t complain about the service here... We had lots of eager waiters wanting
to take our order. We were a bit slow to decide because there were many lovely
dishes to choose from. The all day breakfast menu had tempting choices such as
the Sweet Potato Fritters, bacon, poached egg, pomegranate chilli dressing and
leaves ($16.00) and the Smashed avocado and preserved lemon, mushrooms, Persian
fetta, poached eggs and leaves ($16.00). From the lunch menu, the House-made
Sausage Roll with salad and relish ($9.00) was really enticing me but I decided
to have Mrs Fordham’s Meatball Sub with baby spinach, cheese, and napoli
($10.00). This was very flavoursome and filling! Only problem was that the roll
was so hard that I found it very time consuming to deconstruct into bite size
portions. A combination of sawing with a knife and ripping with my teeth
managed to get the job done... eventually. I might go with the sausage roll
My friend went with The Famous Bacon and Egg Roll
($12.00) with caramelised onion, tomato, herb mayo, and rocket leaves. This
tasted great and apparently was much easier on the teeth than my meal...

Time for some coffees... My latte ($3.50) was very creamy
but did have a slight burnt taste unfortunately. Such a shame as the food was
Anyway, Fordham’s Milk Bar is a hidden away but extremely
great value place to grab a tasty breakfast or lunch.
