Their signature dumplings are neat little bundles made moreish with finely chopped ingredients such as carrots, mushrooms and chestnuts among many other things. These were really good and I could easily down another plate on my own with little prompting.
I was pleasantly surprised to see a fist-sized chunk of organic pumpkin within the soup, making the dish even heartier. A thick but airy slice of bread added bulk and served as the perfect tool for sopping up the sweet delicious puree-like soup.
For my main, I had the veggie omelette and I appreciated how there weren't extra charges to make it egg white. A folded omelette made with peppers, mushrooms and pineapple chunks (surprise!), served with a very pleasing grilled tomato and cheese toast, and healthy mixed green salad.
W's original pancakes with glazed bananas bore a stodgier than usual texture due to the gluten-free batter. While she liked it, monotony set in after a while, despite generous lashings of maple syrup and ginger orange jam.
While the food and concept at Real Food were likeable, I really needed something more and proposed desserts or perhaps, lunch soon after. Whoops!
