Pint of Milk – Newport

I recently went riding with most excellent friend Rambunctuous R – just our usual jaunt out to Williamstown and back again.  It’s a good 30km ride and we always feel that we’ve earned our breakfast when we stop.

This time around – we decided to stop at The Pint of Milk.  The downside of stopping there is that we have to do it on the way back, which means we have to do 2/3 of our 30km before we get to stop and recover (and believe me, at this stage of my fitness campaign – I need to recover).  The upside of choosing to stop there is that we’ve done 2/3 of our 30km and there’s only 10km to go.  Yay!!  What’s that called… the ying and the yang…. ?   Oh – and the food and coffee are really good!

Avocado, persian fetta on pumpkin sourdough with a chilli, mint and broadbean dressing

This time around – Rambunctuous R selected the avocado, fetta and broadbean dish – one that is regularly on the menu, but does go through a few iterations depending on the season.  Always good – she opted to add a poached egg to take it to the next level.  Gotta love it!!

Zucchini & corn fritters with rocket salad, and smoked salmon on the side

I’m not really an eggy kind of girl – so I went for the fritters and they were beautiful.  Moist and quite filling – they really hit the spot. The smoked salmon really made it (available as an extra), as did the drizzle of reduced balsamic.  Ahh Pint of Milk – you’ve done it again.

The Pint of Milk is always a reliable stop – the food is fresh and fabulous, and always delivers on flavour.  The menu is constantly changing so that they make the most of the seasons – but they generally stick with what works – and just tweak the ingredients to maximise flavour and freshness.  The coffee is Gridlock, and the barista knows how to make a great coffee. Overall, you should put it on your list – but be aware – it’s a popular stop and always heaving with people. Definitely worth it though.
