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.
