We finally made time to visit the much hyped Larder out in Miramar over the weekend, where the menu changes daily, so you never know what is on offer until you arrive. The Larder is set in a converted house with seating both indoors or outdoors.
By day, The Larder serves coffee, sandwiches, brunch/lunch meals, and by night it turns into a cosy little bistro type restaurant.
Flat White – Supreme coffee beans are used here and is one of my favourite beans – coffee itself was very nice. and to be expected with Supreme coffee beans. As usual the coffee is served first prior to the arrival of our meals.
We did not have to wait long for our meals. However with Plus 1 selection of side dishes, they arrived as and when it was ready.
Roasted Jerusalem artichoke salad – containing a good number of roasted Jerusalem artichokes, and rocket with some drizzling of olive oil. something that looks so light was very filling.
Plus 1 made up his own breakfast by ordering a number of side dishes which included:
Black pudding with braised Pork Belly – superb. Lots of pork belly and black pudding. The pork belly was nicely braised that it nearly melted in your mouth. definitely goes well with the black pudding.
Pork Sausages – normal pork sausages with nothing to fault.
Bread – all breads are made and baked daily in-house and is served with a large portion of butter. I guess it is always better to have more than not enough. The crust was nice and crunchy, the inside was airy and soft.
Cheese and Rocket Scone – I ordered this to takeaway as they looked amazing. good amount of cheese and rocket throughout the scone. slightly fluffy and not to dense as some scones can be. I was asked whether I wanted it heated or not. I opted not, as I knew i would not be eating it straight away.
Great cafe with an ever changing menu so you can be sure that you will not be ordering the same thing over and over with good service and friendly staff. This place can get quite busy. To avoid the busy period, I suggest coming in slightly early.
