Whatever time of day you stop in, there’s no resisting the all day breakfast dishes here. Ricotta gnocchi topped with chorizo, poached eggs and a tomato and basil sauce? Or how about ricotta hot cakes with strawberries, basil, maple syrup and ice cream for the sweet tooths? There’s no choosing a sandwich over that.
If you like to keep your breakfast and lunch routine separate though, the menu also offers up lunch time eats of fresh pastries, salads and soups, as well as an ever changing menu of seasonal feeds. Chef and owner Doug isn’t one for a regimented menu and has an entire library of cookbooks on the shelves for inspiration, so you never know what you’ll find on the specials board!
It’s not just eating in on offer either – lining the pantry shelves of the café you’ll find irresistible jams, smoked salts, jars of pickled goods and other gourmet delicacies, as well as freshly baked loaves from Brassiere Bread to take home with necessities like milk and butter.
