Bossy Boots Serving Up Some of the Best Salads in Melbourne
Bossy Boots Cafe is a popular light and airy hub in Brighton playing to its many strengths including an amazing array of healthy salads and soups, stunning baked goods, many cakes and treats, excellent coffee and top notch service. Bossy Boots sells mountains of its salads, not just in spring or summer but also in the heart of winter. With a trend to healthier eating, customers are ordering salads with their dishes or in many cases, the salads on their own. The World Loves Melbourne believes a great salad can stand up on its own; that you can eat a salad and find it filling, interesting and nutritional.
Ben Forehan from Bossy Boots prides himself on using local quality seasonal produce when it comes to preparing salads. No short cuts are taken. Ben and wife Rachael honed their skills on Super Yachts working for wealthy customers including movie stars and celebrities like Paris Hilton who demanded the best in salads. This was the perfect experience for running a cafe in Brighton, with a clientele of mostly the well heeled.
One of the attractions of Bossy Boots Cafe is the take home food; many selections from the cabinet such as the salads are perfect for the time poor professional to take home. This is home cooked food at it's best!
Choose salad options from the top shelf of the attractive large display cabinet. Each day a bevvy of fresh salads are made, with selections including Brown rice, pumpkin, spinach and feta, or Vegetarian Noodle salad with peanuts. Or try the Chargrilled cauliflower, bacon, and spinach salad. Pair the salads with house made Lasagne, or say Spinach and ricotta cannelloni for example.
Salads are dense and fresh with crispness of vegetables, influx of popular ingredients such as quinoa, and a wonderful colour and texture profile of the salads. Each salad is well considered as to its taste and nourishment, along with zesty dressings that aren't overly fattening.
Special mention must be made of the ever popular Tuna Nicoise salad, with the superb combination of first class tuna with crispy greens. This has proved to be a hit with locals and beyond.
Bossy Boots serves up popular Italian style treats with Nonna Nellie an icon in the kitchen, with salads the perfect accompaniment to dishes like the Stuffed zucchini with chicken, brown rice and veg and Portuguese salad and slaw. We loved this dish with its rich Italian flavours combined with the superb zest and crispness of the salad. The colours are outstanding and the dish so rewarding.
Or try, as we did match a salad with a Gourmet chunky meat pie (also served with relish and sauce).
Salad options include vegetarian, or enjoy salads with quality proteins such as generous pieces of chicken in this salad. We also note the fabulous "grill" marks on the potato.
The food at Bossy Boots is often described as "rich, hearty and generous" so you leave feeling well fed and nourished with gourmet flair. Get on it!
