It's hard to top the eating, drinking and atmosphere that the the Barossa has to offer, and all on my doorstep! So when it comes to heading to the city, I like to be sure that I eat great food, drink delicious coffee, and absorb an atmosphere that brings joy in a variety of fashions...
So a Saturday morning brunch at Plant 4 Bowden should have been checked off the been there, done that, loved it list long ago. Better late than never and it did not disappoint!
Walking into a funky space, broad selection of foods and good vibe faces - well I felt confident that this would be good.
Before I get into the food, that kids craft space on the mezzanine was a bonus when bringing along the 7 year old. She could have stayed there for hours but we managed to drag her away to join us in the end.
A couple of highlights...the fruit toast and hash brown from the "My Grandma Ben" kitchen. Wow, very special and my mouths waters right now remembering the crispy hash and flavour of the fruit toast. When talking to owner, Jessie, about the low waste ethics of the cafe, the fruit toast began to taste even better.
Struggling to decide between the various brunch menus, we decided to get a bit of everything. The Beach Organics Store smashed avo and baked bean dishes were tasty, light, fresh and filling. For vegan and vegos like me, there was plenty of tempting food on offer - although tough to narrow this down!
To take away, a coffee made with love from Voulas, a superb (no exaggeration) sour dough loaf from The Lost Loaf and selection of Cake Boy's organic vegan donuts. I was lucky enough to get a brief look in at dessert to try the donuts, although the kids allowed very little opportunity!
