We both chose sandwiches out of the glass cabinet. I went with the 'Tofu schnitzel, spinach, onion, tomato, vegan aioli and relish ($12.00)'. This substantial dish was a delightful vegan version of a chicken schnitzel sandwich. The crunch of the tofu schnitzel and the creaminess of the vegan aioli made a hearty vegan sandwich that even carnivores would love.


My dining companion picked the 'Smoked salmon, feta, corn salsa, chard and aioli ($12.00)'. Lovely flakes of smoked salmon melded with the luscious aioli and the sweet pops of corn. Another fabulous sandwich!

WHAT WE ATE...
I chose the 'King Salmon Bruschetta - smoked King salmon, smashed avocado, feta, and baby spinach bruschetta on multigrain toast with French lentil-walnut oil dressing and fresh lemon ($20.95)'. This was delicious and hearty. I loved how the spinach was chopped up and mixed through the avocado rather than just thrown on top. The organic ingredients were lively and fresh. 


One of my dining companions picked the 'Smoked King Salmon and Quinoa Beetroot Fritters - smoked King salmon with beetroot, horseradish and quinoa fritters, pea puree, chive creme fraiche, poached egg, nashi pear and wild rocket salad, and blood orange oil ($20.85)'.

WHAT'S ON THE MENU?
·         Mexican Eggs - creamy, scrambled eggs, tossed with jalapenos, fresh capscium, chorizo, Spanish onion on toast, and a dollop of smashed avocado ($17.30)
·         Tuna Patties served with Greek salad and balsamic dressing ($11.50)
·         Beetroot with Spinach Salad with chorizo, toasted walnuts and balsamic dressing ($9.75)
·         Croque Monsieur ($9.40)



WHAT WE ATE...
I picked the 'Pesto Scrambled Eggs - pesto scrambled egg with pesto, served with avocado and toast ($13.00)'. A scrumptious mountain of scrambled eggs was enhanced with just the right amount of pesto. It was piled high on two large pieces of toast and the fan of avocado was perfectly ripe.  


My dining companion opted for the 'Salmon Beetroot Roll' out of the cabinet. There was no price but they charged us $13.00, which seemed a bit pricey for such a small roll. For some reason, they made the once visually appealing roll into a pancake by toasting and flattening it. The toasting made all the ingredients very wet and thus quite unappetising... 


WHAT WE DRANK...
I ordered a latte ($4.00) made with Melba Coffee...
