AT­MOS­PHERE:

Central Otago Mirror - - FOOD FOR THOUGHT -

There may be a few less re­tail sto­ries in Re­mark­ables Park at the mo­ment, but Evoque sits on a busy cor­ner, per­fect for en­joy­ing the sun from var­i­ous an­gles when it is out and keep­ing cosy in­side, nec­es­sary on the day we vis­ited. The out­side ta­bles and wall of win­dows make it a great spot for peo­ple watch­ing - whether you are in­side or out.

$8.90 we paid for it. Her sis­ter had eyes big­ger than her stom­ach and chose two large cheese rolls drip­ping with cheese ($5.50 each) and a gluten free rasp­berry brownie ($5.80). I can con­firm they were all de­li­cious as she was en­tirely out of her league try­ing to eat them all and was in need of parental as­sis­tance.

Karl’s mega BLT was sat­is­fy­ing ($16) and no­table, as were the other meals, for the fresh­ness of the bread. Staff had kindly switched the ar­ti­san whole­grain toast on the menu for his pre­ferred sour dough.

Af­ter in­tense in­de­ci­sion I ini­tially asked for the av­o­cado smash with poached eggs and was bit­terly dis­ap­pointed to be told there were no ripe avo­ca­dos avail­able, es­pe­cially as I had been avoid­ing them due to the high cost. My sec­ond choice, Eggs Bene­dict with ba­con ($17), was a solid ex­am­ple of an all time favourite, with lots of hol­landaise sauce.
