Breakfast delight - Green Eggs and Ham
We were up early, and off to Barossa Valley for the day, but where should we stop for a mid-morning breakfast. We came to Lyndoch, and a small gathering had formed outside of The Table Café, so we thought that this must be the place.
Despite the gathering there was plenty of choices for seating including outside on the sidewalk, inside the main café which seemed roomier following the lifting of the café blinds, or on the side of the premises in what appeared to be an old carport. We elected to sit under the carport alongside some customary and forming Barossa grape vines, and were promptly provided with a menu and a carafe of cold water by the waitress. Table service was not something that we had anticipated.
The Campos blend coffee was delivered while we contemplated the menu. The coffee was smooth, full flavoured and provided in Campos branded mugs. Most importantly it was warm, and not burnt. On the menu the choices varied from different types of toasts, eggs with or without various extras. We chose the Char-Grilled Bacon and Egg Roll with home made Tomato Relish, and a serve of Green Eggs and Ham.
The bacon and egg roll comprised a fried egg, covered with numerous rashers of bacon, all on a soft toasted bun that had been smothered in a sweet home made Tomato Relish. However it was the Green Eggs dish that excited us most - Scrambled eggs with home made basil pesto and double smoked Lyndoch butcher ham on char-grilled 1918 toast. A very generous sizing of a dish that is gaining in popularity, with all ingredients being local to the Barossa.
Applauding coffee being "warm not burnt"....is that a warning that this coffee is, as often happens these days, lukewarm? One can cool coffee that's too hot - if its not boiled it won't be burnt - but its difficult to persuade vendors to reheat coffee that's served at 35C. Ick.
