The Oaks Cafe, Surrey Hills

·         French Toast – brioche French toast with whipped vanilla ricotta, berry compote, honeycomb and lemon balm ($19.50)
·         Fritters - zucchini and pea fritters, poached eggs, chargrilled bacon loin, cherry tomatoes and whipped feta ($19.50) *gluten-free
·         Potato Pancake topped with smoked salmon and dill mascarpone ($14.95)
·         Soldiers – soft boiled eggs with toasted soldiers ($11.50)

I opted for the ‘Beef Lasagne ($13.95)’, which also happened to be gluten-free. Layers of tender pasta was immersed in the luscious meat sauce. A gorgeous lasagne indeed…

My dining companion decided to have the ‘Panini – roast beef, sweet mustard pickle, aioli, avocado, tomato, spinach and tasty cheese ($12.95)’. The beef was so tender it fell apart in your mouth and was enhanced by the other delicious fillings.

I ordered the ‘Homemade spiced chai milk tea ($5.00)’, which was delightful with its aromatic spice blend. My dining companion’s latte ($4.00) made with Di Bella coffee was robust.

As part of my day job, I get to seek out plant ideas at nurseries and one of my favourites is the Acorn Nursery in Surrey Hills. This time after a stroll around the nursery, we succumbed to the tempting aromas from the café. The Oaks Café has a vast range of both big and small menu items to cater for all appetites. Pop in next time when you want to stop and smell the roses…
