WHAT WE ATE...
The menu consists of breakfast items, burgers and salads but they also have some smaller items in their glass cabinet. I decided to have the ‘Salt and Pepper Calamari with rocket, fennel, orange and basil aioli ($16.00)’. If you have found calamari rubbery in the past, then I strongly suggest that you visit Lily Loves George and order this dish. The calamari was so tender and moreish! The salad element was refreshing and the aioli tasted fabulous too. A wonderful dish that I hope to have again.
My dining companion opted for the ‘Dukkah Eggs – two poached eggs on toast with smashed avocado, mint, fetta, lemon and dukkah spices ($16.00)’. The crusty bread and the luscious avocado blend complimented the perfectly cooked eggs. The dukkah provided just enough spice without overwhelming the dish.
WHAT WE DRANK...
If you are feeling like a bit of decadence, you can have a salted caramel or a white chocolate milkshake ($6.00) or perhaps a ‘Hot and Cold hot chocolate with ice-cream and cream ($5.50)’. My latte ($3.50) made with Toby’s Estate’s Woolloomooloo Blend was superb with notes of chocolate and caramel.
The service was super friendly and made us feel as though we were regulars.
