The Wooden Whisk, St Leonards
The Wooden Whisk at St Leonards is a cosy little cafe located just a stones throw away from the bustling office district closer to the train station. The cafe is popular and buzzing with activity even on a Tuesday brunch time when one would expect it to be relatively quiet.
Sautéed field mushrooms with garlic, truffle butter, marinated fetta, smoked pork, poached egg and toast
I have an endless love for sauteed mushrooms for a meal at any time of the day and when I saw this combination on the menu I simply had to try it. The truffle butter is definitely what makes the dish for me, the mushrooms are just so aromatic and simply divine.
After having trouble deciding on what I wanted to order the waitress suggested that we go with this dish. The corned beef was different but the combination of ingredients with hollandaise was a winner.
The cafe also serves up a number of different desserts including these cakes in the window. The coconut and lime yoghurt cake was definitely my favourite out of the two.
The cafe also has an extensive drinks menu with great coffee from Single Origin Roasters in Surry Hills.
Overall I would definitely recommend a visit to The Wooden Whisk. It’s a small yet amazing oasis of good food and coffee within an ever growing jungle of commercial buildings and busy roads.
