Critic's review

Nikita Buxton

Food

The daytime deli has no airs and graces about it. It’s fuss-free and homely and reminiscent of your favourite coffee spot in the ‘burbs. The small chalk board menu means that things are kept seasonal and ranges from healthy to hearty.

Breakfast options include light homemade granola with seasonal fruits and Greek yoghurt from Gay’s Dairy, or a veg-friendly pesto and cherry tomato toast with mushrooms, rocket, feta and pecans. If you’re an eggs Benny fan, you can’t go wrong here. The classic breakfast features two perfectly poached eggs from Usana farm, with spinach, a glossy Hollandaise and bacon from Son of a Butcher all atop two toasted English muffins. If you’d prefer toast, you’ll be looked after with slices from Woodstock Bakery (also available to take home).

Come lunchtime, the deli counter is filled with salads and sides as well as a couple of protein dishes of the day. Expect options like pork sausages, free range chicken or lamb kebabs, or chicken phyllo pies. Pair your choice options from the colourful veg platters featuring dishes like beetroot and quinoa salad, roast Mediterranean veggies, or pasta dishes like Aglio spinach and ricotta ravioli with crumbled feta.

For something sweet, grab a gluten-free brownie or chocolate croissant on your way out.

Drinks

Coffee is by the Portland Project and comes strong and skilfully made. There are also superfood smoothers, boosters and fresh juices featuring the likes of kale and apple, beetroot and pear, or orange, pineapple and ginger. A babychino or Cocoafair hot choccie will keep the little ones happy.

Service

It gets busy on weekends, but the small and friendly team seem to have things under control.

Ambience

Suburban and homey with worn wooden tables and chairs, chalkboard menus and shelves of colourful fruits and veggies. The tables outside seem to be hot property on warm days.

And...

The deli shelves are stocked with everything from Usana eggs and dairy products from Gay’s Dairy to sauces and relishes from The Cooksister and pastas from Aglio.
