Everything on the menu is lovingly hand-made (except the bread). The breakfast menu is extensive, with a range of options including bacon and eggs, eggs benedict, baked beans, museli, French toast, fruit loaf or pancakes. There are also vegetarian, gluten free and kids options.
The standard lunch options are positively gourmet and range from cheddar soufflé, bruschetta, Thai beef salad, goats toast and Wagyu beef burger through to a range of delicious salads. Or baguettes are available with a tasty array of fillings. But that's not all. The Specials board was full of epicurean delights including pan fried scallops, pumpkin and ricotta tart, mushroom and spinach frittata or a Sri Lankan chicken curry.
I opted for the Hazelnut buttermilk pancakes for breakfast with berry compote and thick, double cream. I washed this down with a "zinger" from their excellent range of freshly squeezed juices. The wholemeal pancakes were so thick I was very full at the end.
If you have a sweet tooth there is a blackboard full of home-made desserts, cakes, slices, friands, tarts and biscuits to whet your appetite. And of course coffee, tea, affogato or home-made juices round off what is a spectacular gourmet menu!
A range of delicious home-made brownies, lemon curd tarts, carrot and walnut or orange and almond cakes were on display.
