Making my way back from the city, I was due for a stop for something delicious before heading home. I thought of trying somewhere different that wasn’t in a busy location, but still had amazing food. After a quick search, I was only minutes away from Sons of Mary, so thought I’d give it a go.
ATMOSPHERE & SERVICE
Located just off Nepean Hwy, this bustling restaurant was in full swing when I arrived just after 1:30pm. I absolutely loved the decor of the space, with rustic exposed brick red walls and a black ceiling and accents. Pops of colour brightened up the space from the greenery dotted around the space and simple cafe style tables and chairs created a warm and inviting tone.
The service was friendly and not overly attentive, which I actually enjoy. I prefer to be seated and enjoy the atmosphere around me without being interrupted too many times.
Serving up breakfast, lunch and dinner, the menu had a great selection of small and larger dishes to choose from, including a few daily specials. Since I had yet to have my morning coffee, I was definitely craving some caffeine. I ordered a Piccolo while I looked over the menu trying to decide what to order. Unfortunately the coffee didn’t hit the spot today due to a strong burnt/bitter taste, leaving most of it behind.
The food on the other hand was tasty. I decided to go with the ‘Open Puff Pastry Pie’ served with Confit Leek, Mushrooms, Blue Cheese & Kipfler Crisps. The leek and mushroom mix was quite sweet, however was paired beautifully with a hint of blue cheese. A crunchy element from the kipfler crisps brought the whole dish together.
