Dare you to visit Daisy’s …
Petersham area is starting to BOOM with some awesome eats … With the Oxford Tavern undergoing a more hipster-fun-eatery transformation, formerly a strip club (some of the facade is still kept in tact & I’m yet to visit) – BUT just further down on Stanmore Road is Daisy’s Milkbar.Daisy’s is every bit of a delightful place you must visit with great EATS! If you are looking for a little local inner-west neighbourhood cafe where you can enjoy pretty decor, with cuteness factor & deliciously delightful food … this is the place for you! It’s got this cool, rockabilly, local milk-bar feel. A large pink painted door with gold lettering “340” marks the entrance of this cool cat … Cutsie decor splashed with pink shelving adorned with books, snazzy nick-knacks, a free cordial stand, little booths, glowing daisy light, glass jars filled with candy and lollies on sale, retro pictures, merchandise such as totes n t-shirts & fresh flowers all with a rustic flair. You can’t help but feel like you have almost stepped into someone’s home!
Despite the dreary Sunday average rainy day, my “Sister Date” couldn’t have been at a better place! With my iPad mini in tow I was ready for a Sunday sesh of sisterly gossip, sumptuous feeds and bridal talk (my lil’ sis is getting hitched!) Starting off with some beverages, I opted for a pot of heavenly sticky chai brewed with soy milk (perfect for the wet weather) whilst my sister went for a refreshing slurps of watermelon & mint juice in a tall milkshake-type glass … Speaking of which – next time must try their milkshakes …Food Focus Time! … Brilliant thing about Daisy’s menu is that it’s ALL day – so I can have a breakfast for lunch or lunch for breakfast … Confused yet?! Hehe … We decided to do the “sisterly share” – for 2 lunch dishes …
Side: fries – seriously, there is nothing better than fries on a rainy day.
Main 1 to share: Meatball Sub – hello where have you been all my life?! This meaty & flavoursome sub was filled with meatballs in tomato sauce, melted sharp cheddar (melted cheeeeeese), roasted capsicum, fresh basil all enveloped in a crusty fresh bread roll. This was ridiculously filling and delicious – it was the perfect balance of tender meatballs with just enough sauce to add the value but not drown it … bread was crusty … enough melted cheese action with the roast capsicum & fresh basil to complete it. Main 2 to share: Toasted Reuben Sandwich – now many many places have tried to master the ruben! You want it to be the perfect balance of salty & savoury. For those who are not familiar – filling usually comprises of corned beef, sauerkraut, melted swiss cheese, russian dressing and pickles all toasted between slices of bread. This was so filling & rich in flavours – all tied perfectly with the buttery toasted bread.Decadent Dessert … Even though we were full, many digestion minutes later we had to try dessert. Weather that day felt too cold for a sundae – so we selected their signature Cherry & Apple Pie served with a scoop of vanilla ice-cream & showered with icing sugar to complete. Nothing better than a warm pie with a side of ice-cream on a rainy day – it’s comfort food at it’s best and a perfect way for my sis and I to wrap up a brunchin’ morning of wedding talk.Here are a few more photos showing you the cuteness & colourful factor …
Daisy’s is so perfectly pretty … Do yourself a favour and I dare ya to visit Daisy’s … I plan to go back again to try the brekkie menu and milkshakes & Sundaes!
