I don’t normally refer to Kristal as my “bestie” but I’m just saying it to annoy the crap out of her. That’s what real best friends do – just as how she used to hide my bedroom slippers in the weirdest of places a.k.a in the microwave oven sealed in a Ziploc bag. Also, balanced on the shower curtain rod in the bathroom. I know, right?
Anyway, I like times with my best friend because we can talk for hours on end, or not talk at all and still feel like nothing’s amiss.
Today we decided she needs a Hump Day treat after her crazy week at Uni so far, so off we went to Harvest Espresso in Vic Park.
It was my second time there, and I’ve been eagerly waiting for this day to come because I really loved what I had at my last visit:
Awesome latte made using 5 Senses Coffee and Seasonal Mushroom, Arugula and Goat’s Cheese on Toasted Brioche
Ugh, it was seriously good. Such a satisfying lunch.
So today, when I returned, I was hoping to get me more of that mushroom goodness. I couldn’t find it in the menu, and the owner, a lovely lady named Catherine, told me that was from the “Summer Menu”. They’re onto their “Autumn Menu” now. I got a little upset. And then I asked if it was possible for me to have Toasted Brioche with Wilted Spinach and Mushrooms as add-ons? Yes, definitely. Would you like to have some eggs as well? Oh yes. Poached eggs sound really good, I thought. And ta-daaa, I’m happy again :D
The brioche – I cannot even begin to describe the brioche except for I.LOVE.IT!! So much goodness in a slice!
My off-duty look. I didn’t even wash my hair because we’d really wanted to rush down to the cafe! Thank God for dry shampoo.
Kristal catching up on her revision for tomorrow’s exam even though this was supposed to be a stress-free outing >:[
We shared the sandwich and a scone too, which was buttery and simply crumbled in my mouth – yumm! To accompany our meal, it was a cup of Chai Latte for me and a Soy Chai Latte for Kristal.
Kristal loves pictures of me looking candid and ugly so I’m posting this in her honour
Dress – Kmart, $19 // Necklace – Lovisa, $7 // Clutch – Rubi, $5 // My expression – Priceless
Harvest Espresso can be found along Albany Highway in Vic Park. It’s located in a row of shops that’s a “blink and you’ll miss it” so definitely do keep a look out – a little tip: it’s only steps away from Victoria Park Hotel!
I am already planning for my third visit to this quaint cafe with Ophe (because I couldn’t stop singing praises of it the last time we met).
Just a friendly note that Harvest closes on Mondays! (:
