Holy crap, it took me almost 4 years to come back to this wonderful cafe. I heard from John that they had changed menus recently, and that prompted our visit.
We knew the place had good food; this time what blew us away was the service. Our waitress was efficient, knowledgeable and had terrific memory.
We ordered three dishes to share between three: warm duck breast salad with crispy bacon, pickled Brussel sprouts, kipfler potato, baby sorrel & orange dressing, smoked Wagyu beef sandwich with sauerkraut, pickles, cheese, Reuben style on GF bread, and pork belly burger with bacon, cheese, chipotle mayo, lettuce & BBQ on GF bread.
Warm duck breast salad ($25)
Smoked Wagyu beef sandwich ($15)
Pork belly burger ($15)
Yeah, that was a lot of bread (and cheese), but totally worth it. Everything was delicious, with the scale tipping a little bit toward the pork belly burger. Will be back.
