Harvest Espresso

I have decided to visit Harvest for the first time last week (a bit slow I know) after hearing lots of people raving about their wonderful autumn menu.

We went around 11.30am on a Friday, and had to wait a bit for tables. The place is really tiny, sitting about 15 people at most, with another two tables outside the quaint little shop.

And this place does live up to its hype!

I ordered Bubble and Squeak and I loved everything about this dish. It was beautifully presented and flavours were spot on. The two eggs were poached perfectly, topped with sweet potato crisps which gave the dish this extra crunch. I really liked the patty as it reminds me of croquettes (I am a big fan of fried potato-ey food), which goes really well with the vegetable farce and spiced pumpkin puree.

Bubble & Squeak ($19.50)

My friend, Echo, ordered the Pork Belly, which comes with two poached eggs, almond crumb, grapes, squid ink and anchovy sauce. She enjoyed her generous serving of pork belly - the skin was crunchy and the meat was full of flavour. It was her second time at Harvest but she was glad she gave it a second chance (her first wasn't that great to be honest so I made her come here with me again this time haha, but yay)

Pork Belly ($22.50)

We wanted to try their famous mango and coconut bread (it looks really pretty!) but too bad our tummies did not want anymore food. Oh well, maybe next time.

Overall, friendly service, good coffee and yummy food - food was reasonable priced I reckon, and you do get generous servings. The only downside is that the shop was tiny so you might have to wait for seats during peak lunch hours or weekends. It will be wiser to come with just a date or two, I think :)

They change their menu every season and I definitely will be back to try their upcoming winter menu.
