Matcha Latte ($4.50, large)
There’s no shortage of brunch options in Castle Towers, with the opening of multiple cafes in the past year. But if you’re after a quieter spot for a quick bite, there’s also Three Beans Café, one of the older cafés in the area.
Mocha Frappe ($6.50)
We’re visiting on a weekend, and though its busy, it’s not difficult to grab a table. Service is quick and efficient, and our coffees and meals are served very shortly after ordering at the counter.
Smoked Salmon on Rye
There’s a generous serving of smoked salmon and guacomole on the Smoked Salmon on rye, although we’re a little disappointed there’s only one egg! It’s a simple combination, but we felt like it could do with a bit of sauce for flavour and the rye a little more toasting.
Corn and Zucchini Fritters ($13.90)
The Corn and zucchini fritters are an impressively low energy (calorie) option, with a serve only being 1010kJ. Part of reason is that the serve size is notably smaller than what you might find elsewhere, but it’s great for a light lunch. The fritters are lightly pan fried, they’re thin and soft and tasty although nothing to rave about.
Nourish Bowl ($14.90)
The menu consist mostly of your typical brunch staples (think eggs on toast) but what captures my attention are the selection of veggie packed bowls. And I’m not disappointed by the fresh veggies in my Nourish Bowl. It comes filled with grains, peas, kale, avocado, red cabbage, carrot, onion, coriander and egg with ginger dressing.
