That’s Amore Cheese has launched its new summer menu at The Cheesery in Thomastown, with dishes that provide plenty of choice across breakfast, brunch, lunch and afternoon eats.
That’s Amore Cheese is renowned for its fresh, handmade Italian-style cheeses, made in Melbourne using local Victorian milk. Therefore, The Cheesery showcases the different cheeses across the menu and guests can enjoy their meal knowing the cheese was made only metres away.
The all-day breakfast menu is served until 3pm and features dishes such as ricotta calda with fruit (hot ricotta served with Beechworth honey and waffles) – $13; That’s Amore fried eggs (served with bacon, mushroom, avocado, shaved ricotta salata & toast) – $21; and house-cured salmon (served with lavato croquette, spring pea salad, tomato and basil vinaigrette) – $19.50.
Paninis have always been a favourite at The Cheesery and the menu offers 12 options! From Campano (porchetta, eggplant & buffalo mozzarella) –$18, to Australiano (grandmother ham & caciocavallo) – $16.
Mains will satisfy a hungry appetite with dishes including lasagne (pork and veal ragu lasagne) – $18; chicken schnitzel (served with roast potatoes) – $21; and Giorgio’s cotoletta (served with sliced tomato, buffalo mozzarella & avocado) – $32. Plus, there are daily pasta and gnocchi specials. Healthy options include grilled chicken breast (served with sliced tomato and mozzarella) – $25, and a selection of salads ($8–16) that make for great summer eats and shared sides.
Then, of course, there are the famous cheeseboards and antipasti. Whether dining alone with the small cheeseboard or antipasto ($25) to a group of six with Giorgio’s Selection (the best cheeses served with nuts and crackers) – $60, this part of the menu should not be missed!
For those with a sweet tooth, the selection of Cannoleria by That’s Amore cannoli is perfect with Sicilian, Chocolate and a Flavour of the Week available every day in small ($2) and large ($4).
A wide selection of coffees, teas, soft drinks and juices are offered alongside an alcoholic beverages list that includes Victorian and Italian wines, beers and digestivi.
Best of all, after dining, customers can buy That’s Amore Cheese products, along with an array of deli produce and Italian pantry items to take home.
That’s Amore! Cheesery in Thomastown is a lesser-known gem for foodies and worth the trip out of the city.
