We sat inside but you can also sit in the courtyard. We started with some coffees. The coffee at Follow the Leader is St. Ali so I had high expectations. My latte ($3.50) was creamy but had that yucky burnt taste which makes it quite unpleasant to drink. I felt like having a burger today and considered having the ‘Flathead Burger: rocket, house made thousand island sauce and Challah bun’ ($12.00). However, I opted for the ‘F.T.L. Burger: pure Angus beef patty, tomato, lettuce, cheese, tomato chutney, sesame aioli, pickle with chips’ ($15.00). This was a delightful burger! The patty was nice and thin (I hate it when burgers are like a fat, dry rissole...) and sandwiched between two slices of cheese. It had a lovely bun and was one of the best burgers I have had for some time. The chips and sesame aioli were also great.
Mum decided to have the ‘B’fast Burger: fried egg, bacon, cheese, avocado, chutney, aioli, spinach’ ($14.00). This was another well executed dish. She thought it was brilliant and would definitely order it again.
