There's no wine license but the food brings the crowds for breakfast and lunch. The panini sandwiches, stuffed with goodies like eggplant or Indian-spiced salsa, are especially popular at midday. Good salads include a Thai beef salad with coconut-and-lime dressing or Asian chicken with crispy noodles. Or, fill up with prawn, lime, and chilli linguine. In the morning, try the Complete Replete Breakfast: honey-cured bacon, tomato relish, poached eggs, roasted field mushrooms,
and grilled focaccia. It is a big favorite with the many multi-sport athletes who frequent this sports-mad town.
