If you are looking for somewhere to brunch (or even dinner or lunch) over summer, then look no further than Degani Casey Central.  The cafe/restaurant has recently changed hands and they are implementing some great changes to their dinners.  When I popped in there recently a friend and I couldn’t resist the classics.

I tried the SMASHED AVOCADO – seasonal avocado, smashed with a touch of feta, poached eggs, a hint of fresh chilli and lime on toasted grain.  As usual I added a side of bacon.  I don’t think I’ve ever had a bad smashed avo, this was quite tasty and nicely seasoned.

My friend ordered the BREAKFAST BRUSCHETTA – served on Degani sourdough toast with avocado, fresh tomato, spanish onion, basil and crumbled feta topped with two poached eggs.  Thinking it may be a lighter option she also ordered a side of mushrooms and a hash brown.  It was actually quite a decent sized serve and the extras although delicious weren’t needed.

Coffee and cake was next on the agenda.  Degani are known for their delicious strawberry custard tarts and the tiramisu was tasty too.

The monster shakes are every kids dream, it was huge.

They also serve mojitos as cocktail or a mocktail!  The perfect drink to be sipping over summer.  We tried one of each and they were very refreshing.

Burgers, Beers & Good Times

Reviewed by Amy @inbetweendesserts

This really sums up what Grill’d at Casey Central is all about – Burgers, Beers & Good Times. There’s nothing better than biting in to a delicious burger except of course when it’s a healthier option with all the same great tastes.  The menu at Grill’d is also gluten free except the Panini or traditional bun and their products are 100% Australian sourced. It really is a place for everyone to catch up over great food.

The restaurant is well lit with plenty of seating including booths and a communal table.  The room has an industrial feel with hanging shelves showcasing produce and drinks that they serve.  There is also ample outside seating with heating.

The owner, Abs has created a friendly and welcoming vibe within the restaurant. He also works regularly in the venue leading his team of staff and setting the standard. The smooth operation of the kitchen pumping out the burgers for both diners and takeaway orders was quite impressive to watch working with both speed and efficiency.

Is it child friendly? It sure is. As soon as we were seated the kids were offered colouring sheets and an animal model to keep them entertained.   Off to the menu the kids can choose from a chicken or beef burger served with a mini chips and drink for the reasonable price of $8.50.  They were very accommodating to  our fussy, hard to please eater who just wanted a schnitzel cut into nugget like pieces.

For all the burger lovers you can’t go past the new specialty burgers. Abs recommended I try the Wagyu Wunder (pictured below), a wagyu pattie with Dijon mustard, pickle, aged cheddar, spanish onion, smoked sea salt, tomato sauce and egg mayo $15.90, with added bacon extra $2 .

Hubby got his beef and bacon fix ordering the Mustard & Pickled! – beef pattie with Dijon Mustard, pickle, tasty cheese, salad and relish $11.50 with added bacon $2.

For a bit of variety we opted for a Chips Share Plate $13 with sweet potato chips, famous Grill’d chips and zucchini chips. Looking forward to trying the avocado chips at our next visit.

This burger caught my eye due to the odd shaped bun. Any burger on the menu can be served on this Low carb SuperBun  for an extra $1.50.  They are gluten, grain and dairy free Burgers and have less carbs that a single sushi roll.

Another great looking burger was the Black Crumb Chicken Schnitzel Burger – Black with the Lot $13.50.

As a local it is so good to see places giving back to the community and Grill’d’s Local Matters donation program is great. They support local organisations and groups within the community and you get to vote by dropping your token into the jar of your choice.  It might be for a local school, a sporting club or a charity and they change them up each month.

We had a great experience eating out with the kids at Grill’d. Abs creates a great vibe around the place and looks after his customers and staff.  Let us know what you think about Grill’d.
