Let's see, where's Snow Pony ? .... on Whitehorse Road of course ! Very clever.
This cute little hipster cafe just so happens to reside in the suburb of Balwyn, somewhere I would have never guessed it to be.
We arrived at 2.50pm, and according to the menus, just in the knick of time before the kitchen closed. We were warmly welcomed by a trendy waitress alongside the heavenly aromas of coffee brewing. We requested to sit in the courtyard, in which the waitress happily led us to. As soon as we were seated, she asked for our coffee orders. No more than 5 minutes later, my skinny flat white was sitting perfectly before me.
Coffee in hand, I was ready to get my piggy on.
My eyes went straight to the 'Snow Pony Classics,' and straightway, I decided I wanted to smash some smashed avocados.
Smashed avocado with thyme buttered mushroom,
marinated feta + torn basil on wholegrain toast with poached egg
This dish of awesomeness did not fall short of the high expectations I had. The wholegrain toast was oh so lovely, generously coated with pumpkin seeds. The smashed avocado was creamy in texture, but also had that lemon-y zing element to brighten it up. Next layer were the mushrooms- soft, juicy and absolute perfection. Topped with marinated feta, basil and a poached egg (of course), the dish was just an overall winner.
Will definitely be giddy-ing back to Snow Pony to try their other delights.
