[Bent Espresso, 385 Centre Road, Bentleigh (on Bent street) ]
Its a strong element of irony that’s plays a part here this morning… I’m leaving at the end of the week to a German flavoured adventure, and Jess and I were treated to an amazingly presented meal wrapped in sunshine and attentive customer service.
The whole package is generally quite difficult to find, but we were pleasantly surprised as bentleigh/mckinnon/ormond isn’t usually a breakfast destination.
Firstly you step inside a very friendly and colourful atmosphere, and you are immediately transported into ‘degraves st’ vibe bubbling with energy and passion for food& art
Jess and I both ordered the avocado & cottage cheese tasting platter!
Visually it is beeeautiful and not only is it delight to look at, the taste is phenominal! The bread is fresh, crispy and lovingly drizzled in olive oil, the avocado is ripe and creamy and dissolves in the mouth, and the cottage cheese is the perfect accompliment to creaminess, topping it all off with fresh lemon! Did I mention it’s all very hands on?
We both ordered ‘actual’ fresh juice’, not that ‘fresh out of the bottle crap! And it was tall, frothy and gooood… Although they did get my fruits mixed up…forgivable.
We were delightfully surprised at the value for money and relaxing family & pet friendly environment.
The view outside isn’t the best, but once ur inside it’s very easy to forget where you are… Very easily does one get lost in culinary pleasures for the senses!
