The Naked Fig has a view that attracts diners all year round. On warm sunny days the outside deck is popular and on cooler days you can view the ocean from the indoor area. Today we’re sitting inside with some friends for whom this cafe has become their local. I love their unique beach inspired lighting design near our table and I also spot another made of plates too. We’re offered the menu which is straightforward with options for all tastes and preferences. Although I find I’m too absorbed by the view and the warm sun streaming in through the windows to focus on the menu properly. I also realise how much I’m looking forward to this lazy catch-up lunch.
The Naked Steak Sandwich $22 was a good menu choice with juicy steak, bacon, swiss cheese, onion chutney, spinach, tomato and mustard aioli sandwiched between slabs of turkish bread. Not realising how filling the sandwich would be, a side order of small, crispy Chat Potatoes $4 didn’t get finished.
The thick piece of Fish of the Day $32, was lightly coated in a panko crumb. The white flesh was moist and soaked up the juices from the lemon when squeezed over. An additional order of small Chat Potatoes $4 was a great alternative to chips and the side salad garnish was fresh.
We ordered Ooey Gooey $12.80 desserts to share between each couple. It was a quick 20 minute wait for it to be made but the guys decided the wait was worth it. The gooey chocolate pudding was served piping hot with crunchy honeycomb and vanilla ice cream.
I really liked my experience at The Naked Fig; from the quality and freshness of the food to the amazing view on offer. Children are also catered for with their own menu and you can even book your next High Tea there! click here for more info Do make a booking if planning a weekend or dinner visit as it gets very busy!
