WHAT WE ATE...
I opted for the ‘B.L.A.T. Wrap – bacon, lettuce, avocado and tomato wrapped up and served with French fries ($14.90)’. The fries were plentiful and the wrap tasted okay. However, the wrap was wet and slimy.
My dining companion decided to have the ‘Smoked Salmon Focaccia – smoked salmon, tomato, lettuce, capers and mayo on a large herb focaccia served with French fries ($14.90)’. There was a generous serve of the smoked salmon but cream cheese would be a superior alternative to the mayonnaise. Again, the fries were the highlight.
WHAT WE DRANK...
I ordered an ‘English Breakfast Tea ($4.40)’ made with T2 Tea. All hot drinks come with a yummy biscuit.
My dining companion ordered a latte ($3.80).
Café Via Biscotti is a great place to catch up for a coffee if you have a dog. There are plenty of hooks in the rear courtyard where you can tie up your pooch whilst you recharge your batteries.
