DD and I were planning to meet up at Newtown for lunch but it was the weekend for track work on the Inner West Line. So we changed our plans and met up at Central instead. Surry Hills is very familiar to DD so he led the way and we walked around looking at cafes to decide which one to try out.
We chose Orto Trading Co. It was full of diners (this is a good sign) and we waited for our table. It took about 15 minutes before there was a table available so DD and I took the opportunity to catch up.
When we sat at our table and looked at the menu, I could already see a few dishes that I wanted to try out but how much can I fit in my tummy?!?! That was going through my thoughts as I perused the menu.
So I decided on the Baked Eggs with sobrasada, roast capsicum, buffalo mozzarella, cherry tomatoes and soudough bread. DD chose the Bacon and Egg Roll with house made relish. I also ordered an Orange, Apple and Strawberry freshly squeezed juice. The juice was an interesting combination and I really liked it. Very fresh! I loved the baked eggs and the bread rolls that came with the dish was freshly baked, warm and soft. Delicious!

DD enjoyed the bacon and egg roll. He mentioned that the relish in the roll worked beautifully with the other flavours. Suffice to say we finished it all. Having coffee finished the meal well.
I intend to come back to try out their Ploughmans lunch with scotch eggs. That one looked delicious too.
