A popular place for lunch for everyone in the area, there were very little seats available with most large tables being reserved. They have a large selection of baked goods and sandwiches from their ‘embreaded‘ range, but I chose my lunch from their blackboard specials.
Red velvet cake – moist but it is more pretty than it tastes.
Paw paw salad (from the blackboard). A light small portion with no chilli although it did have fresh herbs.
Guinness pie with salad and mash potato ($17.90 from the blackboard). I don’t know why I chose a Winter warmer meal when it was hot and sunny. The beef was delicious and tender but the mash was lumpy and cold.
A lovely sunny day to be sitting amongst the roses.
