Darlinghurst’s answer to ethical, sustainable and healthy clean organic food can be found here at Wilde and Co. Tipped by a fellow foodie friend, we made our way here for a healthy brunch and we are so glad we did.
The menu incorporates locally produced goods and many ingredients that have been marinated, fermented and have shown care and intention with.
The cafe occupies the corner spot where Edition Coffee Roasters once was. The space is casual and very comfortable and one of these best things about the place is all the staff are so darn nice. They are clearly happy and enjoy their job.
A community centric concept, run by May Choi, her goal is to connect her history from Korea with the new life in Australia. Therefore their all-day breakfast menu is a fusion of Korean flavours and ingredients with Australian contemporary additions. They have plenty of organic, vegetarian and vegan options.
The nourish bowl (or plate really) had a really considered array of additions. Each selection had been carefully flavoured, pickled, poached and it was well presented. The cashew nut dip was so good with the veggies. I love the Nonie’s charcoal bread which is served with the plate. I ordered a side of poached chicken and found this was the perfect supplement to add that protein kick.
This miso mushroom omelette dish was also Superb. A huge dish, filled with beautifully flavoured mushrooms and activated charcoal bread.
They use Allpress organic coffee beans and also have a range of herbal teas.
We’ll have to revisit and try their green pea and ricotta fritters with pistachio nuts, pickled beetroots, purple kale salad, which we hear is also super good, as well as the organic baked granola and warm porridge.
They have some events to bring the community together and match their concept, such as wine dinners, life music and fermentation classes (these fermentation classes are free), as well as sourdough classes. See their Facebook page for more details.
