#Jazzveh **Bella Vista** Relax by the lake and enjoy the atmosphere. Best for dining with a view.

Sitting sneakily behind towering corporate offices, this gem can be a little hard to find, but once discovered you’ll enjoy an inviting atmosphere that feels “alfresco” from any table in the restaurant.
Jazzveh is famous for making woodfired pizza bases by hand. Pizza meets Persia in the signature “Jazzveh”, with a secret house-made sauce, laden with marinated lamb that has been slow roasted in the woodfire oven for hours. The added surprise of walnuts gives it a great texture.
When dining in a group you must try Poseidon’s Tower. This three-tiered share plate overflows with an ocean of flavours, starting at the top with the crispy Rosemary Polenta Chips, followed by the Ocean Reef Pizza with an added kick to keep any boredom at bay. Calamari and Chips mean even the fussiest little one will enjoy this feast, and the Crispy Battered Fish is super flaky on the inside.
The Garlic Prawns have just enough flavour to still ensure a kiss goodnight, the Mussels are given the full Italian treatment, while the fresh Prawns and Smoked Salmon melt in your mouth — great for family or friends to enjoy together and even more wonderful with a glass of sauvignon blanc.
Salad lovers will enjoy the grilled haloumi cheese with mixed lettuce, roma tomatoes, avocado, crispy sweet potato and a honey balsamic dressing.
Whether dining in a group or enjoying a romantic dinner for two, the wide menu selection, comfortable setting and gorgeous lake view make Jazzveh an ideal location for any occasion.

#The Dining and Co **Castle Towers** Café oasis in bustling shopping centre. Best for great coffee in Castle Towers.

Founded by Justin Park, former executive chef at Peter Doyle at The Quay, shoppers can enjoy healthy, quality gourmet dishes in a convenient location.
The atmosphere is fresh and light with modern fixtures and soft tones. Finding they serve Campos coffee is an added bonus, as you know they have personally trained the staff to ensure your coffee will always be faultless.
As expected from a former five-star dining executive chef, the food is beautifully presented and perfectly balanced. The eggs are poached perfectly on their corn fritters, with avocado salsa, crispy bacon and a deliciously sweet tomato relish.
A popular dish is the Brioche French Toast — two decadent brioche slices, pierced with a maple syrup filled syringe and served with fresh fruit and berry compote, and creamy vanilla mascarpone. The added texture of the pistachio “snow” gives it a unique advantage.
The lunch menu is a five star adventure, with a wide choice of salads that are way beyond boring. Hearty offerings include the Pulled Pork Burger with succulent meat that is slightly sweet and a toasted brioche bun holds the contents well. The portion size is perfect to give you enough room to enjoy the accompanying onion rings and fat chips.
The staff are always helpful, which adds to the great dining experience.
Whether you need a break away from the shops, or just a quick caffeine recharge, The Dining & Co provides a guaranteed delicious and delightful experience.

#The Schoolyard Cafe Cherrybrook Delicious food combined with schoolyard atmosphere. Best for healthy and tasty dishes.

Created by former Castle Hill Public School teacher Meg Wong, it’s easy to see where The Schoolyard Cafe gets its unique name. Offering a fresh, family friendly atmosphere, the school themed decorations give it a really nice touch.
The food is delicious and modern, yet focuses on the healthy side, with lunch dishes like the Falafel Bowl with fresh kale, quinoa and roasted beetroot hummus. Dressed with a house made tahini sauce, you’ll have to convince yourself it’s actually healthy.
For something a little more decadent the Ricotta Waffles with seasonal fruit and house made lemon curd work a treat.
Finding parking is easy, and coffee is supplied by Mecca, offering a great local spot to drop in for a quick takeaway, or sit for a while and relax with a good magazine.
The Schoolyard Cafe offers delicious food combined with a quirky, unique schoolyard atmosphere. Even better, it's great for healthy yet tasty dishes. Most of the menu can be adjusted to gluten free or vegetarian options, so simply ask the staff when ordering.
Meg Wong also runs Hooray Cakes, a baking business that can supply delicious, decadent cakes to order for any occasion.
