Basket & Green

Taking a break from study is difficult this close to exam time. However, I am easily persuaded that quality learning is fuelled by quality food! That being said, AJ and I jumped in the car and drove around Salamanca, Battery Point, North Hobart and finally ended up in Elizabeth Street, Hobart CBD deciding that 'Basket & Green' was going to be our provider of sustenance this morning. 

The cafe is a small outfit boasting a menu of about 10 items all featuring quality produce. We opted for the French Toast and the Rosti with Poached Egg. The French toast was served with a quenelle of mascarpone, berries and drizzled with organic honey and caramelised walnuts. It was a great example of the ingredients, a little 'eggy' for AJ but a good dish nonetheless. I had the Rosti stack, which was a generous serving of herbed potato pan fried with spinach, bacon and a poached egg on top. Around the plate a large Huon mushroom, tomato and some pesto. The Rosti was not as crispy as I would have liked and the overall serving size was a little small for the price paid. 

A good breakfast/lunch cafe with some other menu items I'd be keen to try the next time we visit!

  1. I like totally and agree. And I think that in order to be comfortable with your style is to wear it more often. So wear your style to the lab on days that you don't have to do anything bloody, muddy or otherwise gross!
