Okay, so you’ve read about The Lilydale General before, but I’m writing about it again!
I’ve you haven’t visited this little gem, then put the address, 110 Beresford Road, Lilydale, in your GPS and head down.
Today the General was packed.
I was warmly offered a space over at the bar, settling in with an almond milk chai latte.
I perused the menu, deciding on Toasted Sourdough Bruschetta, with goats feta, avocado, tomato, Egyptian Dukkah, topped with a poached egg.
The meal arrived quickly, and the staff member was friendly and chatty, despite being a busy time.
My latte was creamy and not too sweet and the food was perfect as usual.
My brunch was yummy & I loved the addition of the dukkah. I’ve never had it as part of a breakfast dish before, mainly just used it to create a crust on tofu. It definitely added flavour and texture to my breaky.
I really love how the Lilydale General sources local, natural products; with plenty of options for those with intolerances or food choices such as veganism. But on the other hand I also like that there’s still traditional breakfasts available, with plenty of sides including baked beans & bacon.
I was pretty strong willed at the cake cabinet this time- the Chocolate & Peanut Butter cake had my name on it, but if anything- grab a piece of the Vanilla ‘Slice’ ( & by slice I mean slab, it’s no where near traditional ‘slice’ size), it is perfection.
