Lorna, Ferntree Gully by Bureaucrat

With is smart cafe offerings and Scandi-inspired decor, Lorna has put Ferntree Gully on the foodie map.  I've been meaning to go to Lorna since it opened over a year ago now.  I've read the glowing reviews and seen the beautiful photos of its food on Instagram - so was it worth the wait?  Short answer, definitely worth checking out if you're in the area.

Inside, it's bright and spacious and feels very welcoming.  It has a lovely community vibe to the place.  There's a constant quiet hum of chatter among the diners - there's no loud 'background' music, thank goodness!

Lorna, Ferntree Gully, fish taco
For lunch, I couldn't go past the fish tacos. These were very lovely.  Chunky succulent pieces of white fish that were seasoned with something oh-so-moreish.  It came with avocado mousse, black bean slaw and corn tortillas.  A great option on a hot day - filling without being stodgy. 

Lorna, Ferntree Gully, southern fried chicken burger
The Lawyer went for the southern fried chicken burger.  He was also very happy with his dish.  A juicy chicken breast fillet served with house pickles and salad and chips.  Simple but done very well.

It was a hot day and I indulged in my inner child and got a root beer float.  Such fun!

Lorna, Ferntree Gully, baked treats
I also got a salted caramel cookie (seen above, middle row on the right) to go.  This a lovely soft cookie, although it could have done with a more punchier salt and caramel flavour.
