BEN Coffee+kitchen, Balwyn

·         Brioche French Toast – seasonal fruit, Oreo whip, peanut butter crumble, and Canadian maple syrup ($16.00)
·         Wild Mushrooms – sautéed mushrooms with truffle infused crispy polenta wheels, saffron yoghurt, and topped with a poached egg ($17.50)
·         Salmon Croquettes with figs, asparagus, golden beetroot and aioli salad ($17.00)
·         Breakfast Burrito – bacon, scrambled egg, sliced avocado, cheese, braised kidney beans, tomato, lettuce and coriander ($16.00)

I chose ‘The Rue-Ben – pulled corn beef with sauerkraut, dill pickle, Swiss cheese and horseradish aioli on rye sourdough ($14.50)’. This is the kind of sandwich that I love… it makes a big mess but tastes delicious. The beef was so tender and the delightful juices from the filling dripped down my arms as I took each bite. The sandwich was accompanied by a lovely potato salad enhanced with capers and dill.

My dining companion picked the ‘Wagyu Beef Burger with Swiss cheese, pickle, homemade chutney, aioli and lettuce leaves on a brioche bun and served with rosemary and sea salt fries ($18.00)’. The burger had a wonderful balance of ingredients which created a brilliant flavour combination. The crunchy chips were amazing!

My latte ($3.80) was very nice.

BEN Coffee+kitchen is nearby our place so we often pop in for a coffee whilst on a walk around the neighbourhood. The rear courtyard is perfect on a sunny day… otherwise you can enjoy the warmth inside. The service is always great and the menu has a number of enticing dishes.
