WHAT WE ATE...
I chose the ‘Roasted Veggie Toasty – pumpkin, mushroom, semi-dried tomato, spinach, basil pesto with feta ($14.00)’. There was no way I would be left hungry after eating this ginormous but delightful vegetarian roll. The pesto added punch to the luscious vegetables, whilst the fresh spinach added lightness.
My dining companion decided to have the ‘Breaky Bun – bacon, avocado, cheese, lettuce and house-made garlic aioli in a warm brioche sesame seed bun ($12.50)’ and added a fried egg for $2.50. The bun contained a generous serving of yummy ingredients which were complemented with lashings of the gorgeous aioli.
WHAT WE DRANK…
My 'Latte ($3.70)' was delightful and I loved the green saucer...
Some of my clients have told me, ‘You must try The Foodrinkery. You’ll love it!’. Well, off I went… There is a fabulous rear courtyard to enjoy but we sat inside as it was raining when we visited. The Foodrinkery only uses free-range eggs and organic bread and many gluten-free dishes are on offer. I spied some very tempting cakes when I was leaving so will have to pop in for afternoon tea next time…
