Your new Saturday brunch spot
On a sunny Saturday late morning, nursing a slightly dusty head from a work Christmas party the night before, I discovered a little slice of heaven in the heart of Chatswood at Lid & Jar.
This gorgeous brunch spot is smack bang in the middle of the Chatswood CBD on Victoria Avenue (right opposite Top Shop at Westfield). It's got indoor and outdoor seating, though I'd very much recommend the seating outdoors in order to maximise the ability to people watch.
The coffee is as excellent as you'd expect from a speciality coffee store and the meals are to die for. Their pancakes are thick and fluffy and drenched in maple syrup and their poached eggs with mushrooms are one of the prettiest (and tastiest) things I've ever eaten.
