The Green Refectory is a modest looking doorfront place with no signage, but the huge mouth-watering display of muffins in the window instantly drew me in.
The Illy coffee was cause for celebration, as was the option of soy milk. Good coffee!
I was in a sweet mood today so I opted for French Toast, with yogurt on top and a full poached pear on the side. The toast was raisin toast, but the overall meal could have been better. The yogurt was a weird touch in my opinion. If I had cooked it myself at home I would be a little disappointed.
Friend #1 had a savoury homemade muffin made of pinenuts, pumpkin and fetta which looked great.
Friend #2 had the Breakfast Stack which was pretty impressive, which had a potato fritter topped with bacon, choice of poached or fried eggs, HALOUMI (expertly done) grilled tomatoes, a side of spinach, and housemade relish. Good food.
The cakes and salads on offer looked wonderful, and the staff were cheerful. You have to order and pay at the counter, there is no table service as such as far as ordering goes, but they did bring us water.
- Good prices for the budget impaired
- Illy coffee = great!
- Awesome range of muffins and cakey things
- Nice atmosphere, I like the rustic walls and easy-going vibe
I give the Green Refectory:
6.5 out of 10 muffin high tops!
