An interesting meet up in Ballarat with Bianca from Cooking Capers!
Location: close to the hospital, at 802 Sturt St (see map)
Website: no website (I'm surprised), Bianca's post on Cooking Capers, a few reviews and opening hour details, an empty urbanspoon page.
Price: around $15 to $20 for mains
BLT sandwich with avocado - fresh sourdough bread, with bacon, lettuce, tomato and a smear of avocado. Decent serving, good flavours, with a healthy serving of salad.
Duck risotto - the duck itself was very dry and hard to chew. Risotto had the texture of rice porridge rather than normal risotto.
A range of desserts - that looked yummy, we didn't try any though.
Vanilla chai latte - oh and I started my meal with a chai latte, it was a bit too sweet.
Other: nice atmosphere and decorations inside. Apparently hospital journal club was held here!
Rating: 4/5 overall a nice cafe, with decent food and good serving sizes (Ballarat is full of good cafes!) but the weird duck brought the score down. But perhaps it's an outlier. If I visit the cafe again, I would like to try the other items on the menu.
