WHAT WE ATE...
I opted for the ‘Bacon and Egg Burger – two pieces of crispy bacon, fried egg, cheese, tomato relish and avocado, served with a hash brown ($16.00)’. The bacon and egg burger was massive with double bacon and double egg. This generous burger was also supported by not one… but two hash browns! A very filling meal indeed!
My dining companion chose the ‘Middle Eastern Burger – lamb spiced patty, tomato, baby cos lettuce, haloumi cheese with mint aioli and chips ($18.00)’. The mint aioli made a refreshing addition to the rich lamb patty, whilst the haloumi added texture. It was a delightful version of a lamb burger.
WHAT WE DRANK…
We both ordered a Latte ($4.00). The coffees were quite good with pretty latte art.
I usually go to Cocoa Moon for lunch when in Warrandyte, but on this occasion we thought we would try Now and Not Yet which is just a few doors up. Now and Not Yet is a not-for-profit social enterprise that uses all the money that they make to fund community projects. The interior is a cool space to kick back in after a walk along the Yarra. After your meal, you can enjoy the art in their attached creative space.
