perfect hot weather lunch

we finally made it to tart'n'round last saturday (we had run in once before but didn't even have time for a coffee-- just grabbed a cherry bliss ball and a peanut caramel ball, both soooo good). we rode up in the heat (turns out it's less than 4 km from our house- why has it taken this long to get there?) to have coffee and lunch before heading to darebin bowls club for a 30th. i finally got to have a proper ice coffee with ice cream (and i think even some whipped cream). i wasn't actually that hungry and it was HOT so i just got the lentil salad which was something i could easily make at home but it was exactly what i wanted (the lime dressing was really nice). zac got the satay tofu burger which was huge (the tofu slab alone was huge and nicely marinated) but zac thought it was great. now that we know how close it is, we have to go up more often. it's close enough to easily walk there and back-- we normally walk between 6 and 10 kms a day on the weekends. i have to try more of the desserts-- they all look soooo good.

Isn't it great when you find great places for good food??? I love it!

yeah. this place is great because it's enitrely egg, dairy and gluten free so i can get anything on the menu without asking about egg and dairy and when i ordered my ice coffee i just had to say "ice coffee". zac was a little skeptical when i told him he only had to say "latte" so he did confirm with the guy that it was soy. 8)

Oh the stay burger sounds good, was it served with flatbread? and I do love those peanut butter caramel and cherry bliss balls.

Peanut butter caramel bliss balls sound like... well, bliss. You're so lucky to have this as your local!!
