It was a blustery morning down on the Scarborough Esplanade and what better way to stay cosy than to head in to Monty's Cafe for some tasty tucker and a hot cup of coffee. Monty's Cafe offers a menu of all day breakfast and lunch from 11am with a hot drinks menu including a range of juices and smoothies. Monty's menu has a focus on healthy, fresh food and has vegan, vegetarian, keto, gluten-free and paleo options. There is also a kids menu with everything about $5 though I didn't see the portion size.
I had a long black with a splash of milk on the side. If a cafe does a good long black then they pass the test in my view; mine was hot with good crema, happy days. My partner ordered the G T juice- ginger and turmeric with carrot and orange juice. The juice was a triumph-zingy and fresh.
Maybe its the tradie in me but I couldn't go past the bacon and egg roll with homemade tomato relish and extra beef patty whilst my girlfriend ordered the avocado smash with feta, dukkha and poached eggs on sourdough toast. The bacon and egg roll really satisfied, the beef patty was juicy with grated carrot inside and the homemade relish added a savoury yumminess. The avo smash was devoured with satisfaction after the strong southwesterly nearly blew away the garnish and half the dukkha.
