After my final (wedding) dress fitting last week, my (future) mother-in-law and I stopped off at Norton Street, Leichhardt in search of a light meal and a coffee. Well Co was the first to capture our interest with its relaxing vibe and outdoor sitting area. We settled ourselves at a table near an umbrella just far enough from the road to avoid suffocating on car fumes, but close enough to observe passersby and indulge in the Norton St atmosphere.
The friendly waitress presented us with menus and served us table water while we made the very difficult decision of choosing only one meal from the menu of mouth-watering dishes. Specialising in modern Australian food and European foods, they are probably best known for their range of eggs on toast on their all-day breakfast menu.
The arrival of our meals was worthy of groans of pleasure at not only the beautiful presentation but also the tantalising smells. My lamb salad topped with yoghurt looked like the most enticing salad I’d ever set eyes on and the taste was near perfection. The lamb was lightly marinated and so tender.
My mother-in-law raved about her egg and fetta omelette and we both adored the garlic and fetta lavash bread.
The midday meal was finished off with a hit of caffeine in the form of a macchiato (M-I-L) and a soy latte (me).
Delicious food and a relaxed atmosphere, Well Co is a place I intend to visit again. Apparently this café is a branch of Well Co Glebe which I haven’t visited but after enjoying what they have to offer in Leichhardt I’d like to check out Glebe too.
