Lorna (Invited)

Driving away from the hectic city crowd always makes a space for my brain to rest. Felt so excited even though it took 45 minutes from the city to reach Lorna Cafe located at Upper Ferntree Gully. The feelings of "we made it!" was even better when I saw the comfy cafe with a peaceful decoration.
The service is excellent, the waitress are very kind and friendly, they are all ready for any request.

I ordered regular mocha to get a little booster for my day. Unexpectedly, it came with unusual size. Trust me, the regular mocha is bigger than the other "regular" size which made me happy and they make a good coffee indeed.

Halfway I drank my coffee, I ordered a Beef- Brisket Burger ($18.5) that seems huge and I was hungry at that time. It is a beautiful pulled beef brisket burger with homemade bbq sauce. The meat is smokey and get the freshness from their slaw. Balancing with the Swiss cheese and aioli inside, the bun is fresh; soft yet crunchy on the outside part. This burger is also gluten free. Accompanied with potato wedges on the side make this burger portion is perfect for lunch but probably too big for breakfast unless you will skip your lunch.

My partner ordered Lorna's Turmeric Scrambled Eggs ($18) which looks so yummy. There are some cut chorizo and Spanish onion in the scrambled eggs with accompanied of potatoes and banana peppers on sourdough. It is a delightful food with a precise amount and I found the harmony between all the ingredients.

As usual we had one sweet dish to share and we chose the Acai Bowl ($16) that has granola and their amazing homemade yogurt with bananas, strawberries, peanut butter, and Indian gooseberry jelly that bring a light sourness for the bowl. This dish is refreshing but a little bit too much for dessert after I finished my savoury dish. A delicious healthy bowl and we didn't regret it.

Overall we really enjoyed our brunch experience at Lorna Cafe and can't wait to come back next time!
