Blacksmith Cafe & Bakery, Surry Hills

DSC_0152I have the bliss of catching the bus past Surry Hills on an empty stomach almost everyday, pondering what delicious treats each café offers as I past them, one by one.

Blacksmith Cafe has always caught my eye, and rightfully so. You could definitely use the words “tavern” and “rustic” to describe the place. I was almost expecting Harry Potter and the Weasley family to drop by and order some Butterbeer at the counter (Unfortunately, they never came, but ill wait).

This baby was served with black quinoa, Persian feta, heirloom tomatoes, watercress, lemon zest, sourdough and paprika olive oil drizzle. This was the bomb. I usually find that I have to add salt to the avocado smash at most cafes but this dish balanced out with the savoury feta and quinoa mix so well. I should probably warn that this dish is deceivingly filling and great value!

The roll was served with brie cheese, rocket, iceberg lettuce, tomato and cranberry sauce. An enjoyable option with the brie adding a lovely creamy texture to the baguette. Once again, really great value.

DSC_0171Our experience at Blacksmith was short but sweet! But I’ll be back! They also have really great vegetarian options.
