Astoria, Wellington, Beef Burger - 3/10

Beef burger with Monterey Jack cheddar, tomato, dill pickle, baby cos, & chipotle mayonnaise.  Served with Fries - $18.50.

Astoria is a pretty busy cafe in the heart of Wellington's business district.  Set back from Midland Park, the only green space in a fair distance, it has a good vibe to it.  When Dawn and I lived around the corner it was a favourite weekend brunch spot.  Good coffee. Quality food.  Excellent service.

On a weekend visit with the wife and kids, I noticed the burger on the menu, which pushed all the right buttons.  quality cheddar, pickle, cos lettuce and a chipotle mayonnaise.  Scanning the room, I saw a few burgers being devoured.  I made a mental note to get back to Astoria and test run the burger.
