A little place that serves big

What you need to know:

  • Last Sunday, these mains were on the menu, written up by Nicole on her blackboard.
  • There was a choice of tacos (whether grilled snapper, chicken, eggs and bacon, or lime and chili beef); corn fritters with rocket, tomato chutney, bacon and poached egg; homemade toast with balsamic mushrooms, queso fresco (Mexican cheese), and poached eggs.
  • Between the three of us (I was with my wife and my son) we each tried a different one of the three dishes. The mushrooms and poached eggs were delicious – and the other two looked happy with what they had chosen.

It’s not an easy place to find. But the effort is worth it. There’s no elegance in the setting. But the warmth of the welcome and the quality of the food makes that a small matter.
