What we ate
Food: The smashed avocado on the breakfast menu included a substantial amount of avocado with Persian feta, cherry tomatoes and two free range poached eggs served on super crispy sourdough that had been brushed with olive oil. The avocado had a subtle hint of lime juice, giving the dish a slightly tart yet fresh quality. The portion size of this dish is rather generous so make sure you’ve got a good appetite before digging in.
Coffee: A smooth coffee with earthy notes and a slightly bitter quality, making for a perfect balance of acidity.
