Relaxed bistro style venue with an intimate atmosphere run by the chef and owner Sean Ackermann who's philosophy is fresh & tasty food made well.
The menu is small but well thought out and made with passion that can be experienced in each dish.
I arrived for lunch by myself. Not many customers, but this will change - hidden gems like this never stay hidden for long. Ambience is nice, alternative eighties music on the jukebox! Cappuccino was like most, but I really liked the cup it came in. The free peppered tortilla chips with sweet tomato salsa was a nice touch. I ordered the Curry of the day - lamb - and it was great (it enhanced my feelgood rainy day). It came with rice, poppadum and salsa fresca. The menu is small, but interesting enough for the discerning tastebud. Think smoked mushroom crepe, brinjal stack (vegeterian) and haloumi burgers.
Open weekdays for lunch and dinner. Bring your own wine (no corkage fee). They have a Sunday lunch club that will propably make Ritual Café a proper ritual in my household :)
