Friday Feast – Café 89

Café 89

We visited on 07-10-16

Man down, man down!! We were missing one of the troops today, however we still headed out for the Friday Feast. Café 89 was our place of choice today, and it did not disappoint. The place was buzzing with patrons choosing to either sit indoors or enjoy the sun-drenched footpath dining. Jo and her team provide a wonderful selection of hearty meals catering for breakfast (all day) and lunch. Two of us chose the steak sandwich with roasted mushroom, Swiss cheese and caramelised onions, whilst our counterpart savoured the 89 chicken burger with honey mustard mayo, all served with chips. Other options include corn fritter stack, Spanish baked eggs and the 89 beef burger. The all day breakfast menu is extensive with choices of eggs Benedict, smoked salmon omelette, a healthy breakkie stack or the big breakfast.

Momenti coffee is a huge hit with caffeine aficionados, whilst other drink choices include Tea Tonic – Australia’s Healthiest Tea Range, milkshakes or freshly squeezed juices.

Café 89 (supporting Pink Up Mudgee) has something for everyone whether it’s breakfast, lunch or morning & afternoon tea. Come down and see why this café is so popular.

Cheers,

Friday Feast – Wineglass Bar & Grill

Wineglass Bar & Grill

We visited on 20-09-16

Friday Feast – The team headed to The Wineglass Bar & Grill to savour the delicious menu. Owner and Chef Scott Tracey provides many options that will appeal to all appetites. Select from the $11 lunch specials which include steak sandwich, an Italian pizza with prawns or a fresh Caesar salad. Or for those that want something a little more upmarket, try the chicken risotto, the seafood linguine or the slow roasted pork belly.

If lunch is not for you, why not start the day with a sumptuous breakfast. Choose from hot cakes with honeycomb butter, Belgian waffles with chocolate sauce or something for the health conscious, granola, dried fruit and yoghurt. All of this can be washed down with award-winning Vittoria Coffee.

If a 3 course meal is more your style, come and try the dinner menu which changes seasonally and is prepared using regionally sourced produce. Match this with a selection of local wines for an unforgettable meal.

If you want to make a weekend of it, stay at the Cobb & Co Court Boutique Hotel, Mudgee. Relax in a beautifully appointed queen room or a New York style loft apartment, centrally located and adjoining The Wineglass.

Why not take an opportunity to enjoy all our gorgeous region has to offer? We’re so busy we often forget to appreciate this amazing place we live.

Now, any suggestions for our lunch date next week?

Cheers,

Friday Feast – Outside The Square

Outside The Square

We visited on 18-11-16

The team headed down to Outside the Square Café to enjoy the spring day. The cafe offers great options for breakfast and lunch in a great family friendly environment. The small servery window for take away coffee is a hive of activity in the morning and the aroma of fresh baked muffins and cakes is hard to pass by.

The breakfast menu is very simple yet delicious with choices including French toast, buttermilk pancakes, toasted muesli, or Eggs Benedict, Eggs Florentine or Eggs Ocean (smoked salmon). For the big appetite tuck into The BIG Square with eggs, bacon, tomato, mushrooms, potato rösti served with tomato relish. Accompany this with a Toby’s Estate Coffee or Toby’s Estate Organic tea to complete your morning.

If lunch is what you are after, then again the menu will satisfy your taste buds. The chicken burger seemed to be the popular choice on Friday, however the Cajun chicken Caesar salad was a personal favourite. Other lunch time options include a gourmet steak sandwich, the Greek lamb burger, various salads and choices of baguettes and bruschetta’s. To replenish the fluids on a warm day, select from milkshakes, smoothies, organic soft drinks and juices. Kids are not forgotten either with a number of options for the little appetite.

The focus of the owners and staff here at Outside The Square Café is to provide a family friendly place that serves coffee produced by ethical companies and also organic and natural options. Come in and meet the staff and see why everyone is starting to look Outside The Square Café.
