The old Satis had good food but was pokey and I don’t think they had a kitchen that always allowed them to get food out in a timely manner. After getting some extra space and rennovating, Satis has been reborn as a spacious bar that serves excellent vegetarian food and gets it out quickly.

Mel and I had lunch there last Wednesday and we both chose food from the breakfast menu, which is available until late afternoon. I had the breakfast burrito with a poached egg. It was loaded with lots of stuff including roast veggies, beans and polenta, and then dipped in a deep fryer. It was excellent. Mel had “The Favourite” – hash with chilli fetta and basil oil, and eggs on toast. The hash was a good size and the topping was pretty special. I would definitely eat both of these dishes again.

It is good to be excited about a local vegetarian restaurant. Something has been missing since the heyday of Bernadette’s, and I’m looking forward to getting back to Satis to try a few more things.
