13 Feb Legacy, Camberwell Take 2
A rather popular cafe, Legacy regularly sees long queues on weekends. Luckily for us, we manage to drop in on a weekday. There are still plenty of people sitting down for a meal, and picking up coffee. Grab and go sweets include bliss balls made in house, as well as Bistro Morgan doughnuts and Butterbings.
Legacy’s Mocha is delicious. It’s smooth and rich, with just the right amount of sweetness. On the fresh side of things is the colourful Mr Brightside superfood smoothie with dragonfruit, coconut infused yoghurt, chia seeds, mango, banana, and honey.
The Sushi Bowl is basically a giant deconstructed sushi roll with salmon tataki, a rather large amount of avocado, edamame, nori, radish, pickled ginger, sushi rice, and a fried egg, sprinkled with fried shallots and shichimi chilli powder. The rice is seasoned well, the ingredients are fresh, and when mixed together it makes for a satisfying and healthy lunch.
We don’t often go for lamb salads, but the Lamb Super Salad is a flavoursome combination of very textural ingredients. There’s a lot of lamb given, and a there’s nice nuttiness, not just from the hazelnuts, but also from its quinoa, seeds, and kale.
The vibrant, eye-catching Pitaya Yoghurt Panna Cotta comes with a cacao, dark chocolate and coconut granola, sliced strawberries, and wedges of passionfruit and grilled orange. Being made of both yoghurt and the seed-filled dragonfruit, it’s not completely smooth and silken, but we appreciate the fact that it’s not sweet, making it a great team player for the sweeter textural granola.
Legacy isn’t popular for no reason. It’s colourful dishes are both photogenic and tasty, and it’s a formula that brings in the crowds.
