Organised a Friday lunch with the girls at Lindt Cafe. Who would say no to some great food and even better desserts? No one, that’s who 😉 Ridiculously we endured the rain and wind to walk there. I don’t mind any kind of rain and wind, I mean the blimmin’ INSANE kind. Think gale force winds that blew our umbrellas inside-out and basically threw us around on the footpath.. and rain that was thick and horizontal. Weather that made the news. I think it was a bit mad to go, and tentatively suggested we go someplace nearer (like, the cafe downstairs at our office), but everyone was adamant we go. So we did!
After enduring the terrifying conditions, we breathed a huuuuge sigh of relief upon entering the cafe. It was warm, cosy and most of all, DRY. Fortunately, not everyone was as insane as us, so we got a table immediately – normally you’d wait up to 30 mins for a table around lunch time. We eagerly grabbed at our menus, cold and hungry. Food came swiftly to our delight and it was all delicious! I shared the Panini and also the Tart with a friend, which was perfect so we didn’t get stuck with just our one meal. Had a lovely time gossiping, laughing, and keeping warm in the cozy cafe. Only downside was having to trudge back to work afterwards, haha!
Girls and Lindt. A match made in heaven.
Their famous hot chocolate. Ahhhhhh…
It’s my favourite hot choc in Sydney
Panini with Roast Pork Loin, Tasmanian Brie, Fig and Walnut Chutney and Wild Rocket (AU$10.50)
Loved this, I can never resist tender roast pork! And the
chutney gave it a great sweet kick to contrast
Club Sandwich with Smoked Salmon, Dill, House Pickled Cucumber with Goat’s Curd (AU$10.50)
Simple, tasty and (kinda?) healthy. But pricey considering
it’s just plain white bread!
Tart with Smoked Salmon, Braised Leek, Dill and served with Mesclun Salad ($13.00)
Ooo.. this was so rich and buttery, but absolutely divine
Creamy insides.. so so good
Waffle with Lindt Hazelnut Ice Cream and Chocolate Sauce (AU$12.50)
Their waffles have now SHRUNK, but it’s still the same price! Not happy.
