|Vegie Delight...with chicken $6.50|
Quinlan's on High is staffed by hospitality students, so service is diligent and you get all the little details akin to a fine dining experience - pressed napkins, smartly dressed waiters, complimentary bread and side salad and table centre pieces - without the cost. Some of this stuff and the decor is a bit naff and the menu is a little trial and error but these things make Quinlan's lovable. Lovable like a mutty dog. It's also nice to feel properly waited on when your lunch is the cost of a simple sandwhich.
The best part is that just about everything on the menus under $10. You can get easy thing like wraps, soups, nachos and sandwhiches but they also have daily special board with hot cooked meals like my "Veg Delight" which actually had chicken in it (haha). The dish was a bit confused - one part chickpea curry and one part vegetable Ratatouille...with chicken skewer kebabs - but it tasted pretty damn yummy and at $6.50, you really cannot get picky!
I recommend Quinlan's for a quick lunch in Freo when you want a change form your everyday sandwhich. Excellent value, for sure.
