The menu has a large range of interesting dishes that should cover everybody’s tastes. Items on the menu include Quinoa and Apricot Pudding ($12.60), Russian Flat Cakes ($15.00), and a Roast Beef Open Sandwich ($18.60). The specials were enticing, especially the Pumpkin Croquettes Salad ($11.40) - three homemade pumpkin croquettes with salad. However, I opted for the Poached Italia ($15.70) - homemade polenta and pumpkin bread, pesto, cream cheese, and sundried tomatoes beside poached eggs. It was nice to have something a bit inventive. Anyone can make eggs on toast at home (well, nearly everyone...), so it’s good to see cafés being more imaginative with their menus. The eggs were poached perfectly and the polenta and pumpkin bread was quite flavoursome.
My dining companion chose the Benedictine Eggs ($16.40) - rich hollandaise sauce on poached eggs, bacon, and spinach with a side of grilled cherry tomatoes. This meal was very well received.
My latte ($3.50) was not too bad but next time I might have some tea instead as they have a vast selection of T2 teas ($4.00) including Turkish Apple and Choc Chip Chai.
