We probably wouldn’t have found this or knew about it, if it hadn’t been referred on by a fellow foodie, wheredoieatpete who had it saved on his must visit list. It is also out of our area, but we are glad we ventured to find it whilst heading down the south coast, for it certainly is a quality cafe.
Located in a side street off the shopping centre in Kirrawee, in what looks like a street full of factories, the cafe is spacious with indoor and outdoor seating. The light-filled venue has modern interiors, greenery and casual seating.
Coffee wise, the venue uses White Horse Coffee, which is a quality blend and it comes out complete with latte art.
In addition, there’s plenty of options for the non-coffee drinkers and I enjoyed a Calippo juice; freshly squeezed apple, orange, lemon and lime.
The food menu changes seasonally to keep it fresh and stay interesting at the same time, but with some of the favourites being kept.
It was hard to decide since so many things took our fancy. Although I did want their new pannacotta, it was lunch time so I decided on the vegan and dairy free lunch bowl. A filling plate full of broad bean tabbouleh, roast garden vegetables: pumpkin, carrot and eggplant as well as a generous dallop of hummus, seasoned with dukkah and lemon. It was nice and warm and so tasty, such a hearty and wholesome meal. If you’re super hungry, you could also add chermoula grilled hormone-free chicken maryland, roast lamb shoulder, crispy free-range pork belly, house smoked salmon rillette, or grass-fed rump steak.
Their chicken sandwich was also excellent. Made using local bread supplier, Thoroughbread, the light miche was super good, filled with warm hormone-free roast chicken, rosemary & paprika, leaves, tomato, herbs, chipotle mayonnaise. Very reasonably priced too.
Plenty of options here for those with dietary requirements.
Staff were incredibly welcoming and friendly which should be commended.
