WHAT WE ATE...
I was tempted by the ‘Waffles with strawberry and black cherry jumble, macadamia nut and oat crumbs with vanilla ice cream ($16.50)’. I loved the combination of strawberries and cherries with the crunchy macadamia. The silky ice-cream added some extra indulgence.
WHAT WE DRANK…
My Latte ($3.80) using Genovese coffee was okay.
Eastland may possess the fashionable eateries of Ringwood… However, hidden away in a residential street is Leaf & Vine. Their dishes consist of fresh ingredients that are ethically sourced where possible. We sampled some dishes from the Winter Menu but you can now try their Spring Menu.
