If the promise of a cheese cabinet isn’t enough to entice you into this charming cheese focussed cafe, restaurant and fromagerie, the rich aroma of coffee and the staff’s French accents definitely will, whether you stop in for breakfast, lunch, dinner. The breakfast menu is a fusion of French technique and Australian cafe classics, with generous servings and an obvious tribute to dairy. The quintessential avo smash gets a makeover with the addition of goats cheese mousse and roasted sesame dukka, or you can ditch the breakfast roll for a Monte Cristo breakfast sandwich with leg ham and gruyere in brioche French toast. If you resist the urge to cosy up next to the fireplace, there are hot drinks and tasty treats to takeaway including pastries and cheesy (of course) toasted sandwiches.
The lunch and dinner menu is equally as impressive with a distinctly French flavour. Entrees including French onion soup with cheese gratin, truffled mac ‘n’ cheese, crab risotto with lemon mascarpone and cheese soufflé, while mains are the likes of grilled pork with brie, gnocchi with truffle and pecorino, sirloin with whipped gorgonzola and trout with goat cheese. As if you weren’t already spoilt for choice, there’s also charcuterie, fondue and cheese platters to share, and a bar menu.
