I found myself in a new undiscovered area today and was unsure what to do. Instagram pointed me in the direction of Ramekins Cafe in Carseldine. We definitely were not disappointed…
I don’t say it lightly when I say that it took us a very long time to decide what to choose on the menu… In the end I dove in and had breakfast for lunch with the Zuchinni and Kale Fritters with green goddess sauce of fresh herbs, mayo and yoghurt topped with a poached egg and Yarra Valley Persian fetta$15 (GF,V). I am not convinced on the accompanying sauce but the rest was a good size and very tasty.
This should really go before food because it was the highlight of our visit. Ramekin Cafe boasted two smoothies of the day Snickers and Jam Doughnut, naturally we chose Snickers which arrived decadently with cream, and plenty of extra calorie filled toppings.
They also serve my favourite Elixir coffee.
Ramekin cafe is counter service although the waiter allocated us a table and gave us the specials. The food all arrived very quickly and was super fresh.
Ramekins is in Carseldine Central, although it is in a large shopping centre the outdoor seating and the small touches make you feel very welcome and inviting.
The Verdict: the drinks were the big winner today, the food was tasty but not to the same standard. Overall: 7/10
