Blueprint is one of the places I go to quite regularly due its proximity to Uni.
On my first trip to Blueprint, a Uni staff suggested that I try this ham roll, which was so good that it has now become one of my staple lunch foods! Too bad I never remember the name of it and refer to it as "the roll with ham in it, which looks kind of like the salmon one". I do remember that it was somewhere around $8.

So upon arrival today, I was hoping that my ham roll would be there. When I asked where the "roll with the ham in it that looks like that salmon one" was, they said they had already run out of it for today! Darn it, I'll have to arrive earlier next time.

Fish & Chips with squeezable tartare & tomato sauce $9.90
I ended up having this instead, the batter was nice and crisp, not soggy or overdone at all. My friend said the fish tasted like those baked fish that you buy frozen, but what the heck, it was still good!

Sausage Roll served with salad and sauce for the sausage roll. (I think I really need to start learning my sauces, it tasted kind of like barbecue sauce but I could be wrong, most likely am wrong)
It tasted okay, a sausage roll which is pre-made and then heated up can only go so far. Speedy didn't seem to mind it.

Blueprint Burger (Beef) in Salad & Chips $9.90

One of my friends always orders the Blueprint Burger when we come here. I tried a bit of the burger meat and I found that the consistency and taste was really similar to a sausage roll except more dense, a bit strange. I'm sure it would've tasted better if I had ate the whole thing together.

The highlight of lunch today was probably finding out Amazon couldn't eat burgers properly, she had to unstack the burger before she could eat it haha.

Blueprint also offers a breakfast menu that goes until 11am, muffins, yogurt, fruit salad etc. the types of food you'd typically find at this kind of cafe. They have a set lunch menu but they also have daily specials.

Pricing: The lunch menu can range from $9.90 to $18 depending on what you order.
You won't be feeling hungry after ordering one of the dishes off their lunch menu. The rolls, pies etc. are around $8 or so.

Overall Score - Casual Dining: 14/20

  • Range of Choice: 4/5
  • Value for money: 3.5/5
  • Venue: 3/5
Oh, a thing about the venue... the decor is quite nice, but those are some small chairs! I always see these business people cramped up in them, it can look quite funny at times though haha.
