On a glorious warm Spring day, Emmy and I sat out in the backyard of Saffs cafe.
The local apple juice (Harcourt Apple Juice $3.50) had a crispy tang to it which went down well with the richness of the Smoked salmon eggs and hollandaise $16.50
We were well looked after and the staff frequently patrolled the backyard area and were doing a very good job in making sure everyone had their food and drinks.
My smoked salmon and eggs looked pretty as a picture and dining outside under the trees made it even more special. With the shiny canary yellow hollandaise glistening, the salmon had the right amount of sweet, salty and smokiness pile on top of a very cute hand grated potato rosti (none of this croquette masquerading as ‘rosti’) golden fried in butter & oil. The poached eggs were done well with enough deep yellow yolk to ooze out lazily over the wilted spinach.
Though, I need to order other dishes when I go to Saffs but I can’t help coming back to this particular one. I LOVE it!
Chance of returning: Medium, whenever I am in Castlemaine.
