About Me

Food is one of my many joys in life. It is a common bond I share among my friends and family. Combining food and travel makes it all the more interesting. I enjoy going out for a good meal with friends and family. The array of various cuisines and our fantastic array of produce really makes Sydney such a great city to live in. Blogging is my hobby and my posts on restaurant meals I have had are paid for and not gratis. Any gratis provided to me will always be stated beforehand.

Longshot Cafe (Beecroft, Sydney)

Beecroft seems to have quite a few cafes for a suburb with a shopping hub consisting of a couple strips of shops. It is a charming little village. Longshot Cafe has been around for a while and is one of the more popular hang outs.

Unfortunately I don't have many opportunities to hang out in this charming suburb during weekdays and rarely on weekends either. But one thing led to another and I found myself having lunch here one Saturday catching up with some friends.

It is located on a corner lot and is pretty much surrounded by ceiling high glass, hence a brightly lit interior. There are also exterior tables and chairs shaded by large upstanding umbrellas.

For lunch we had:

Open sandwich of grilled chicken on soy and quinoa bread, with grilled kale, green hommus, avocado and lemon.

Pulled pork roll with a fried egg, and harissa dressing.

Corn and zucchini fritters with crispy bacon, smashed avocado, wilted spinach and jalapeño mayo.

J enjoyed his chicken sandwich; T would have liked more harissa dressing with her pulled pork. I did enjoy the fritters but would have liked more jalapeño mayo. I sure liked my crispy bacon! :)

The iced mocha ordered by J looked seriously rich!

I decided to go for broke and ordered a good cuppa coffee! :)

On another visit, I returned for breakfast. This time I had the dukkah and hommus poached eggs with wilted spinach and roast tomatoes on rye bread. Glad I ordered this dish, it was interesting to have a green hommus and not the typical hommus with tahini. I found out the hommus was made with spinach, parsley and basil. Nice!

They also had home made cold pressed juices and the juice of the day was Watermelon, apple, cucumber and lime. As I slowly sipped the juice, there was a lingering aftertaste of the cucumber and lime. It was very refreshing.

I found the service to be friendly. Bear in mind that you have to order and pay at the counter. And their bread is supplied by Brasserie Bread.

I wouldn't mind trying out their Beef burger on my next visit!

Dear Cindy,

That pulled pork but with a fried egg looks simple and freaking delicious!

Cindy said...

Hi chocolatesuze, having that alone would have filled me up big time! :)

Cindy said...

Hello ChopinandMysaucepan, you're right! It does look simple. I liked the look of the harissa dressing oozing from the roll! :)
