menu is simple. Mostly burgers. Fine burgers. The buns are from La Madre sourdough bakery. The menu claims that "all ingredients are farmed and sourced locally when possible, and organic. The waitresses are young and hip.
Alas the creative naming of burgers seemed limited to the meat burgers: Mad Cow, Hell Yeah, Fire Engine, What a Pickle. A chicken burger was even named What Everybody Gets. The burger I chose was called Lentil Lentil. I think this name might have been to distinguish it from the Hot Lentil. My Lentil Lentil burger had a home made lentil patty, tasty cheese, carrot, lettuce, tomato, onion, house mayo and home made tomato relish. Doesn't sound fancy. Yet it was fantastic. Lots of vegies, a satisfying patty and a great bread roll.
Personally, as a vegetarian in a small town, I would much prefer to eat in a place with a dead fly and sauce on my trews and get a decent meal than just eat fried protatoes for lunch. They even had a sign promising garibaldi biscuits. I would have bought one but they had sold out. I gather the Bottle of Milk is fairly busy in summer but you can always take your burger with you and eat it on the beach.
Finally, I notice on the website of The Bottle of Milk, that they will be coming to Torquay. This is a far easier destination for me. Perhaps I will sample their burgers again sooner than I expected!
