The fare includes several inventively named meals, like the John Gotti full house breakfast with eggs, rosemary-infused mushrooms, tomato bacon or macon, sausage and toast; the Norma Jean fluffy omelette with a choice of fillings; burgers – you can buy also buy uncooked patties to take home; and plenty of salads, tramezzinis and toasties.
They take pride in their organic herbs, vegetables and fruit and sensibly remind customers that both avocadoes and mangoes are seasonal. Kids have their own menu featuring favourites such as cheesy hotdogs and fries.
There are a handful of reasonably priced wines available by the bottle or glass and other alcoholic drinks, as well as Illy coffee, smoothies, milkshakes and a selection of teas and beverages.
Friendly and helpful.
A sunny garden adorned with wind chimes, hanging baskets and a woven heart is the drawcard of this café. Iron tables are scattered around and under the trees, on the balcony and inside the airy double volume interior, decorated with an eclectic collection of memorabilia. A small, secure children’s playground is located on a lower level. If you’re on your own, pick up something to read from the book rack.
Brunches, outings with grandparents, casual meals for families, chill time for homemakers and anyone craving respite from city life in general.
