A friend of mine took me to Liar Liar in Hawthorn. I hadn’t even had time to look it up. I had no idea just how good it was going to be!
There was a ten minute wait to get in but there were puppies outside to play with so no problems there.
We were ushered in to a table and the first thing I see is this amazing avocado dish making its way across the floor to a lucky patron. I knew there and then that was what I would be ordering.
Our server was absolutely delightful. He looked so happy just to be there and was smiling and joking the whole time while being attentive. If I opened a cafe, I would poach him.
Anyway I ordered a Purple Sunrise Juice, fresh carrot, beetroot, celery, apple and ginger. Just what I crave after a night out to attempt to feel human again. It was delicious.
Of course I ordered the Smashed Avocado ($17) – Feta, Avocado Smash + Maple Glazed Bacon + Two Poached Eggs + Sourdough Toast + Dukkah.
I can not tell you how phenomenal this combination is. The sourness of the feta mixes with the sweetness of the maple. It’s the maple that makes the dish. I highly recommend.
I couldn’t even eat it all but I didn’t want to waste it so I ended up scraping the delicious mix off the toast. Yum.
Go there. Try it. Then thank me.

Great place. I love the crapapple kitchen and axil coffee roasters too!
Rachel, now this is offensive. You said to go there and try it, I´m in Spain for crying out loud the only thing I´m tasting now is my own saliva since you have me drooling after seeing those pictures. My empty stomach and I still have 3 more hours to go until I eat, and you put me this as a tease, a tease to my poor empty stomach.
And how I wish I was in Spain to try all the culinary delights there! I’d be eating tapas galore! Now my mouth is watering. We’re really not doing well here.
oooo, las tapas. One of the great delights of going out during the afternoon from bar to bar and tasting different ones. Yep, you are missing on that one. Make a pass one day through the land of the wild bulls.
Oh I will be. Potentially next summer. Less than a year away! Cannot wait.
I´m sure you´ll have a ton of fun here. Plus we Spanish people in general are very hospitable.
I’m not a big fan of avocado, but that looks and sounds great with all the combination.
