Lotus Eaters

Funky chicks cooking up a storm in the kitchen, creating some amazing tasty meals for you. Lotus Eaters offers delicious wholesome food made with fresh, locally produced ingredients.  Its a small place on the main road of Cygnet packed with bright and sunny character. They have plenty of outdoor seating, but its wise to book, as lunch time fills up fast. I love the food and atmosphere here. Plates often come with large servings of salad, fresh leafy greens and herbs. The staff here are lovely and friendly, with a genuine compassion for making healthy delicious food and supporting free-range and ethical farming practices.

I relished in a glorious lunch of French onion tart with trio of salads, stocked up with plenty of salad greens. The Tart was delicious with a rich combination of flavours attributed to dill, onion and cheese. I loved the vibrant colour of the carrot salad that was speckled with nigella seeds, delightfully dressed in a sweet vinaigrette. Alongside this was a herby apple and red onion salad combined with creamy fetta cheese and light lemon dressing. The stark contrast of flavours and colours was enhanced by a red cabbage salad dressed in balsamic.

My companion had the chicken dumplings in a delicious vegetable broth accompanied also with plenty of fresh salad greens and crisp vegetables.  The chicken dumplings were delicious, superbly spiced and matched with fresh garlicy herbs.  The broth had a clean natural flavour which exuded healthy elements into the rest of the meal. These meals are very generous, with at least 12 dumplings to the bowl. Definitely check this place out, its worth the drive. They also offer great breads, cakes and pastries.
