WHAT WE ATE...
I picked the ‘Chai spiced French toast, ricotta, honey, rhubarb, raspberries and almonds ($16.00)’. What a gorgeous dish! The dried rhubarb standing proud made a striking statement whilst the scattering of pansy petals and flaked almonds added a graceful touch. The ginger flavour in the French toast was balanced by the tartness of the compote and the lusciousness of the ricotta. I loved it!
companion chose the ‘Smoked mushrooms, beetroot hummus, broccolini, wilted
kale, toasted buckwheat, almonds, scrambled eggs, grain sourdough ($18.00)’.
This was also fantastic. The buttery eggs, the smoky mushrooms and the amazing
flavour on the kale created a brilliant dish.
WHAT WE DRANK…
My latte ($3.80) made with Capulus Coffee had a robust flavour.
In a new building complex on Maroondah Highway is The Full Pantry and Café. You can stock up on your lentils, seeds, and flours and then pop over to the adjoining café for a coffee.
