Belle: On this particular Sunday morning, The Lamstock decided to go for a little drive around town in search of a new brunch location using our trusty Foursquare app. Originally we were on route to a bakery in Drunmoyne, but noticed Lyons Raw along the way and decided to drop by there instead.
The open glass facade brightened up the room on this particular gloomy and rainy Sunday morning.
We started off with our selection of coffee. From left to right: Affogato ($4.5), Soy flat white ($4 + $0.5 for soy) and Soy latte ($4 + $0.5 for soy).
With a quick glance over their simple menu, we knew exactly what we wanted to try.
I instantly went for the Bacon & Potato: Poached eggs, roasted tomato, smokey bacon & potato served on sourdough toast ($18.5). Being gluten intolerant, I often find myself opting for any potato dish in the morning to fill me up. The bacon was the highlight and full of flavour. It was sweet enough to not overpower the saltiness of the bacon. Ando and Brenda helped finish the sourdough toast.
Brenda ordered the Lamb Sausage: Chargrilled lamb sausage & baked eggs on a bed of mixed beans served with Danish feta & fig walnut toast ($18.5). It was a nice heavy dish and exactly what Brenda needed that morning. It was interesting to find lamb served on a breakfast menu as opposed to other meats.
Ando went for the Salmon & Eggs: Scrambled eggs, fresh chives & truffle oil served with toasted croissant & smoked slamon ($17.5). This was the dish was the one that most lacked in flavour and probably needed additional seasoning or an extra element.
I felt that for the price we paid, the dishes were not value for money and a tad overpriced.
Lyons Raw serves all day breakfast and lunch seven days a week. With an addition of their wine bar open + taps on Friday nights (Bookings essential).
