Stepping into Legacy, the Scandinavian-inspired interior already made me excited for the food that we’re about to have. There is a communal table when you first enter at the cafe, but we were sat at one of the tables towards the back, providing just a tad more privacy.
Starting things off with a skinny flat white, since you know, try new things, venture out, all that good stuff. The coffee was smooth and went down a treat.
I was pretty proud of myself for getting a salad, it’s like seriously, who have I become? A salad person? WHAT?! All joking aside, this super salad actually didn’t taste all that… salad-y (?), and by that I mean, there was a ton of flavour and textures going on, yet it was still quite mellow. There was a good amount of lamb, and the obligatory greens took the form of kale and rocket, two of my favourite leaves when prepared right, and the hazelnuts added a nice toasty touch. The sweetness of the cranberries also offset the sourness from the beetroot pachadi perfectly. Overall, there was pretty much nothing to fault, and it’s actually a salad I would order again, and that is saying a lot!
Legacy has a short yet exciting menu, paired with some gorgeous colourful healthy smoothies, yet it doesn’t come off as overly pretentious where you would only fit in if you were decked out in gym gear, which is actually quite hard to achieve. If you’re looking for a new cafe to try in the Eastern suburbs, definitely give Legacy a shot!
How to get there:
Legacy is located on Camberwell Road, catch tram #64 and get off at stop #61, Camberwell Junction/Burke Road, and the cafe is around 7 minutes walk away.
