FOOD:

Central Otago Mirror - - FOOD FOR THOUGHT -

There is an over­whelm­ing sense of choice when you walk in, from full lunch from the menu, cab­i­net lunch with or with­out salad, to cakes, slices and bliss balls.

The Kids Lunch Box ($10) came with a ham and cheese sand­wich, an ap­ple, chips, a choco­late fish and small fruit juice and Miss 7 was de­lighted. Miss 9 chose hot­cakes with maple and ba­nana ($9).

When Nana’s Eggs Bene­dict with ba­con ($19) ar­rived at the ta­ble, it was al­most too glo­ri­ous to eat. Beau­ti­fully stacked on a toasted English muf­fin was spinach, oven dried toma­toes, the ba­con and ap­ple cider hol­landaise. Rich and fill­ing - it tasted as good as it looked.

I or­dered the daily spe­cial - poached eggs and as­para­gus on honey pump­kin bread with beet-

root gel and pick­led beet­root ($19) and again, it ar­rived on the ta­ble look­ing like a work of art. The fresh flavours and com­bi­na­tion of crisp and com­fort­ing tex­tures were per­fec­tion.
