WHAT WE ATE...
I originally ordered the soup of the day ($10.90) but I was later informed that they had run out. They asked what I would like instead so I chose the ‘French Toast served with mixed berry compote and maple syrup ($13.50)’. They didn’t charge me any extra for my new meal which was really nice of them. The French Toast was very big and had a lovely, jammy berry compote on top. It just needed a bit of cream or mascarpone to cut back the sweetness.
My dining companion opted for the ‘Chicken Burger with crispy chips – grilled marinated chicken breast in citrus and herbs served with tomato, pineapple, green oak lettuce, Spanish onion, tasty cheese on brioche bun with lime aioli sauce ($14.90)’. This was a wonderful burger! Having grilled chicken rather than fried made it a much lighter and healthier option. The addition of the pineapple was refreshing.
WHAT WE DRANK...
I ordered an English Breakfast tea ($4.00) which was great.
My dining companion ordered a ‘Large Milk Chocolate Mocha ($6.20)’ made with premium Belgian chocolate. I had a sip and it tasted delicious.
The extension of Eastland has resulted in many new eateries. Caffe Cherry Beans is located downstairs and offers lots of seating both inside and outside of the café. The menu had a good range of meals and the service was very good.
