Aside from the menu, there is a blackboard specials menu comprising four gourmet salad types and a quiche of beetroot marmalade with goats curd. Miss food hunter was wooed by the description of the salad specials and the look of the colourful salads sitting in the display. But first, an Affogato to appease Miss food hunter's coffee fix.

The 1st choice salad of Roasted root vegetables with Danish Fetta and Sun-dried Tomatoes was just outstanding! Who would have thought roasted vegetables could taste this wondrous? The amalgamation of the perfectly softened sweet pumpkin and sweet potatoes with the coating of poppy seeds and creamy, lightly salty fetta alone, were just a delight! The plump semi-juicy/dried sweet tomatoes and peppery-ness of the water cress brought the salad up to top notch for me! The 2nd choice salad of Grilled Salmon with Garden salad was good but not wow. The salmon was just a tad dry, though generous in chunks and majority of the salad leaves (rocket & mizuna maybe?) were far too wilted from the oily dressing. It would have been better if this salad in particular was prepared fresh to order. There were also slivers of carrot, red capsicum, celery and purple onions to complete the salad.
Other lunch options include a rustic beef pie, chicken & mushroom quiche, vegie pattie burger, pork sandwiches etc. and all home-made. The menu is way more appealing than how we've just described it. Consistent quality food & organic coffee served by a team of friendly, energetic waitstaff all in a relaxed idyllic setting...what more could we ask for? Oh oh oh and wait...Lure is open for DINNER too!
