Smalltown in Avalon ticks my three main boxes at the moment; good food, good coffee and room for the pram. The staff here are also friendly, although not the most attentive.....please just come and take my toddlers order, sadly I'm not even joking, my two year old ran from the lounge-room to the kitchen this morning asking her father for a babycinno. She cracks us up...and once again I digress.
Smalltown serves Single Origin Roasters coffee which fits in to my 'crowd pleaser' category, meaning it is an enjoyable drink, but there aren't any flavour characteristics that excite me. That said, I did want the flavour hit again so I enjoyed a decaf for my second coffee beverage. Before children you could hear me say 'decaf, what's the point?' but as a breastfeeding mum I'm on caffeine rations, so I'm on the hunt for a delicious decaf, although I shudder at the thought of the solvents that are used throughout the process.
For lunch I couldn't go past the fish tacos. A squeeze of lime freshened up the deep fried parcels and the mayo was absolutely delicious with just the right amount of heat (for me at the moment), although my husband probably would have been asking for some chili sauce to spice it up.
Lara was very content with thick cut chips, which she decided she was having when we got out of the car on the other side of the road and the delicious aroma wafted under our noses like a scene out of a cartoon. She seriously smelt the air and exclaimed "chips", priceless. Naturally I had to bite the ends off to cool them down for her, so I can vouch that they were delicious. However, the house made chipotle aioli had gone a miss which was disappointing.
