Excelsior Jones

Finally. Located in Ashfield, Excelsior Jones is the new coffee shop on the block. White-walled rooms with matching chairs and copper lamps are filled with locals and crazy foodie people like me.

Delicate and indulgent dishes fill the menu and boy, do I want to try every single thing on it.

Smoked Salmon Hash with poached egg, fried buckwheat

The poached egg, potatoes, flaky salmon and crispy buckwheat created a perfect balanced flavour and texture to create one of Excelsior Jone’s  famous dishes. Salty and heavy, this is a crowd-pleaser no doubt.

Pearl cous cous with zucchini, roasted capsicum and tomatoes with Chicken.

Light and delicate, the pearl cous cous created a pop in the mouth. Smooth and chewy with a crispy outside. The dressing was tangy, refreshing and well seasoned. The caramelisation of the chicken added a strong and juicy depth of flavour that creates a dish worth travelling an hour for.

The selection of pastries in the class counter is also astounding and mouth-watering.

Cronuts, madeleines, muffins, cakes, you name it.

The lemon buttercake was delightfully tart and zingy with lemon curd seeping out from the middle.
