Two Seeds


High Street in Ashburton has quite a few inviting cafés to try. On this occasion, we thought we would give Two Seeds a whirl. Two Seeds uses free range eggs from Kinross Farm and supports local businesses like Top Shelf Fruits and Asburton Meats. Many items on the menu are cooked to order using quality ingredients but if you are in a hurry there are sandwiches, baguettes, and wraps available in the display cabinet. The café is set over two levels with a white interior and a delightful collection of vintage plates displayed on one of the walls.  




WHAT’S ON THE MENU?
·        Baked Eggs with Moroccan meatballs, goats cheese, wilted spinach with La Madre toast ($17.00)
·        Pumpkin and Fetta Tartlet with rocket salad and lemon dressing ($12.00)
·        Corn Fritters with poached eggs, fried haloumi, coriander salsa and house-made sweet chilli drizzle ($15.00)
·        Thai-rific Calamari Salad with green papaya, green bean, tomato, mixed herbs, roasted sliced almonds and house-made dressing ($15.00)
·        House-made Chicken Fingers with small serve of fries ($7.00) *kids menu


WHAT WE ATE...
I decided to have something from their daily specials: ‘Lasagne bolognaise with béchamel served with mashed potato ($13.90)’. The steaming hot lasagne arrived on top of the mashed potato. I thought this was an odd combination but it tasted delicious. Plus, I do love my carbs. The lasagne was rich and gorgeous and I was very full afterwards! The accompanying side salad of rocket and slivers of red onion was also tasty.

My dining companion also decided to have a lasagne from the special’s board: ‘Pumpkin, oregano and ricotta lasagne served with mashed potato ($13.90)’. This lasagne was also fantastic and very luscious.

WHAT WE DRANK...
Two Seeds have a huge range of Harney & Sons Fine Teas ($3.80) with flavours such as Cinnamon Sunset, African Autumn, and Pomegranate Oolong to choose from. A Peppermint Hot Chocolate ($4.30) might be more your thing... My latte ($3.80) was lovely.
