Le Cirque (Fine Foods)

There was a good deal, $10 for $20 voucher at Stardeals worth of food at Le Cirque Fine foods, a pretty little cafe in Docklands (Melbourne CBD). Mmm we ate a lot for this meal.


Location: 27 Star Crescent, Melbourne (this is within the Harbourtown at Docklands) - see map

Website: official website, reviews on urbanspoon

Price: ~$10 for breakfast items, ~$17 for mains (lunch) and $5 for milkshakes - see full menu

Food:


Eggs florentine - poached eggs with a generous serving of spinach and Hollandaise sauce, on English muffin. Standard breakfast stuff, nicely cooked, good runny yolk in the middle, sauce balanced nicely with the ingredients. Mmm quite filling.


Calamari salad - ah perhaps this is what I had in mind when I ordered the salad at the Homestead recently. This was a great serving of lots of calamari, lots of salad and a yummy dipping sauce. I don't usually order salads (because leaves are cheap to buy in the supermarket) but felt this was worth the price.


Atlantic salmon - "cooked medium rare served on potato mash and spinach topped with lime beurre blanc". Decent slab of salmon, but I'm sure the salmon was overcooked rather than medium rare! Still tasted good together with the potato and the sauce was quite sour, sort of strange.

Other:


Lovely indoor decorations, I love chandeliers, and we sat next to a nice striped wall painted in black and white. Apart from the items on the menu, there were little gifts for sale, and other salads, pastries, and cakes available at the counter.

Rating: 5/5 one of the best cafes I've been to, nice food, reasonable prices (even better price with the vouchers!), and a good atmosphere. Salmon could have been cooked better but the rest of the experience made up for it. Well worth a visit!
