This bacon and egg roll turned out to be a very nice. The bacon was plentiful and came with a fried free-range egg and sauce all on a toasted bun.Read More

Pastadelli is well known for its great range of pastas - but in reality it offers much more than this alone.
Open for breakfast, lunch and dinner - and for snacks and coffee in between these times - it always seems to have a constant trade of customers going through there doors.
They do a roaring trade in take away - for food and drinks - but there's also plenty of space inside (and a few outside as well).
We were there for brunch and as usual started with a couple of coffee's. They have Campos coffee here - and it's a great drop. We sat at the bench just inside the front door looking outside onto the street and the passers by. It was a great place to people watch mid morning while sipping a good coffee.
This version was delicious and perfect with brown sugar.

Once upon a time the food offerings in sleepy suburban Wahroonga were very limited.
These days, it's a whole different story.
One place now doing well is The Laneway.
It's especially busy on a Sunday morning when the brunch set all drag themselves out for their mid morning coffee and first bite of food for the day after a big Saturday night.
It's small, but they've used the space well to create an area that doesn't seem overcrowded.
Mlady loves her toast and peanut butter for breakfast on weekends.
This soy and linseed toast with a generous mound of peanut butter was just perfect for her and she was a contented Mlady!
Sir decided to have something a little more substantial to start the day.
The choice of eggs either poached, scrambled or fried was just ideal.
He had them poached with a side of fresh mushrooms.
The eggs were perfectly cooked and arrived with flowing yolks. The mushies were great too and there were plenty of them.
The Laneway is small but cute and worth a look.

In quite a short time The Butchers Block has moved from new kid on the block (pun intended - sorry) in Wahroonga to a North Shore institution that people travel quite a long distance to visit.
In fact, they've even had a love child - having opened up The Butcher's Apprentice next door.
If you're wondering - yes this was once a butchers shop once upon a time.
They've certainly kept plenty of the history pf the place very visible too - with a wide range of butcher and meat related devices all over the place.
Both were lovely meals with substantial quantities of good food!
The whole place has a relaxed feel to it. It's nicely fitted out and has great flow and space from indoor areas through to a lovely rear outdoor area that's so fashionable on weekends and fine sunny days.
Would we come back - absolutely yes. The food and drinks were very good and it all felt great.

Danes has a very strong reputation for its coffee - as highlighted in its name. In fact people travel here just for the coffee alone.
They do have food as well though, and some tasty options that are well worth trying.
It's a cosy place in a very good location in the main drag at Wahroonga Station. This area has become quite a cafe and food hub.
They have outside seating as well to soak up the weekend sun.
We dropped by for a weekend brunch. Of course drinks are the first thing on anyones mind on a weekend brunch. Mlady was thirsty and wanted juice - and the sign saying freshly squeezed juice had her happy straight away. She had a combination of orange and apple and it was lovely. The coffee's were also really good, as we expected here. Mlady had a soy cappuccino while Sir had a flat white.
Then on to the food. Sir ordered the smashed avocado and tomato on toast with a balsamic drizzle. It was a tasty combo and a surprisingly healthy choice for Sir compared to his normal selections. Mlady had one of her favourites - scrambled eggs on toast. She of course chose the grain bread too. She was impressed with both the taste and the quantity of the meal.
Danes has been around here for quite a while. It's not a big place but it is very popular - especially for its coffee. It can look crowded at times as you order from the counter. Don't be put off though as many are simply ordering take away.
Unit 1/46 Hampden Ave
This restaurant is another one of those hidden gems in suburbia. The restaurant is quite small - or cosy/cozy so it lives up to its name. This is a place you wont just accidentaly drive past - its out of the way. However its worth trying to find! Decor is nice, service impeccable and the food was great.
Cozy Thai is a hidden treasure in the back streets of Wahroonga. Take the trouble to try to find it - you wont be disappointed.
48 Hampden Ave
This is a really good restaurant - tasty food, pleasant decor, good service - well worth the trip.
Olive and Fetta Crust - Pizza crust with mozzarella, kalamata olives, fetta & herbs for $9.90. This was a really good combination - wished we'd ordered two of them.
Garlic and Herb Crust - Pizza crust with mozzarella, garlic butter & herbs for $8.90. Tasty stuff here! Melted cheese just starting to brown - the way we like it. Not overpowering flavour - subtle.
La Zana is a real find - worth a visit - or in our case a return visit.
