Say hi to the chooks and get a coffee
Ah, the Community Environment Park CERES. Every time I visit, I check out the happy chickens, marvel at the lush veggies and finish off by winding my way up to the Merri Table Organic Cafe. It's a light airy cafe, the tables are roomy and I can read the weekend paper with ease.
They also have quick service which is good as I'm a grumpy thing without my starter latte.
The food is all locally produced, you can even see a list of the producers if you so desire. They also cater for gluten free, vegan and any other dietary requirements.
I enjoyed the toasted oats and buckwheat with nuts and sultanas, fruit compote and yoghurt. It was a good sized portion and my friend, being vegetarian, tucked into the sour dough bruschetta with white bean smash, roasted pumpkin and seeds, sage, and balsamic dressing.
