Smalltown - Avalon, Sydney

Merry Christmas! Hope everyone has a fantastic break spending time with loved ones. I love this time of the year; and am definitely looking forward to these holidays to hang out with family + friends, relax, and eat lots of great food.

Last week, I took a little scenic road trip to Avalon. The weather was a tad grey and windy, but it was still a nice getaway.  Of course, I had to stop past Smalltown, as I've only heard great reviews.

Coffees and doughnut

The coffee is by Single Origin Roasters, which never disappoints. The doughnuts are made in-house by owner, Katrina Smith. The flavours are always changing; get in early to nab one as they tend to sell out pretty quickly! 

On this particular day, the doughnut is a fruity and tropical coconut and lime. I take it away for later, which might be the cause of it being a bit on the dry side. One the other hand, the coconut and lime glaze + topping is absolutely divine; definitely up there on the list of best doughnuts.

Lemongrass and star anise bircher

The lemongrass and star anise bircher is a stunning dish, with a perfectly carved lemongrass + star anise poached pear and edible flowers. The bircher consists of organic buckwheat, sorghum and rice puffs, coconut yoghurt and almond ginger praline.
