Pancakes galore, and more @ Left of Field

Left of Field, located on the water at Rhodes has been a popular café for a few years now. Ever since it opened, it has been buzzing with visitors. I visited early in its opening to sample the earl grey pancakes with popcorn and they have updated their menu regularly and I hence revisited to sample their new offerings.

You must visit for the pancakes. These are not the kind of pancakes you can mix and flip yourself at home. These are the type that a super fluffy, yet crunchy on the outside and like a mix with a muffin. They are then sent into overdrive. The Pavlova pancakes are like no other. Topped with meringue crumbs, passionfruit coulis, pieces of kiwi fruit, strawberries and blueberries. On the top is a caramelized banana and served with a side of vanilla custard cream. They are begging to be devoured. And devoured we did.

We urge you to keep an eye out for the winter menu as we hear a new pancake option that will be sure to be a hit. But we will leave the surprise to the them.

We’re also regular fans of a pannacotta. This version was a yoghurt panacotta and very creamy, it had just the right amount of wobble. Served with a beautiful roasted coconut granola with strawberries, blueberries, and toasted coconut. One of the best we’ve tasted.

Although the sweet options were superb, we thought it would be good to sample a lunch option too and so we went for the Autumn Roast Vegetables – market veggies including beetroot, pumpkin on hummus with farro and hazelnut dukkah. You can also add chicken or haloumi to your dish.

There’s plenty of delicious sounding items on the menu: cheesesteak, fried chicken sandwich or the lof burger and you’re set for the perfect lunch.

The coffees are great too, we went for a cappuccino and an iced coffee. They have some sweet treats too – the ever popular butterbing cookies. It is also a licensed venue so you can enjoy a beer, wine or cider on your visit.

The space has a light filled interior, clean styling and a sizeable outdoor area too. It is very welcoming and the staff are extremely hospitable and focused on A + service. The food came out as quick as we ordered, we were suitably impressed.
