The cafe is quite hard to find as the signage is subtle and the entrance is dominated by a massive Charcoal Chicken mural. Welcome to suburbia!
If it’s a sunny day head to the back courtyard that’s perfect for kids. There is chalk for scribbling and miniature furniture for little legs.
If you’re mad about mushrooms then try the Mushrooms 7.0. It’s four different types of mushrooms surrounding a truffled porcini and parsnip puree on top of a fried egg and a shiitake and dashi tea ($17). It is a sophisticated rendition of a simple, earthy ingredient and really has ‘wow’ factor in both the presentation and melding of flavours and textures.
We try the tower of pancakes ($17) served with chocolate crumble, berries and chantilly cream. The pancakes are light little discs with a caramelised banana centre. The only bum note is the teeth-breaking sticky toffee claiming to be candied pistachios.
There’s a kids menu with options up to $10 though the thick slab of Bakery Lievito multigrain toast with vegemite keeps Baby 2.0 very happy.
Everything’s made on site and the ingredients are local, free range and organic where possible.
