Life with kids in Sydney City
Seasonal, organic produce in the arty streets of Chippendale and within an easy stroll to Central Park.
Something for Jess largely use locally sourced produce, displayed proudly on a blackboard.
Now, would I bring a double pram or have a Mum's group catchup at this tiny cafe? No, I would not. But I would definitely head there sans pram for a meal, or stop by for one of their seriously strong coffees and savoury or sweet home made treats on the way to Central Park. A mix of communal tables and high benches on the side walls, this cafe has definitely made use of it's space and is perfect to chat to other foodies about the gorgeous menu.
Coffee - Something for Jess use Blind Man coffee for espresso, ristretto & long black and Duke coffee (from Brunswick, Melbourne) for their milk based coffees. We both had flat whites and the single origin coffee was smooth, bold, and quite intense in flavour - which is always a great way to start the morning!
Their menu consisted of freshly baked sweets & savoury pieces as well as Gourmet sandwiches and largely breaky/lunch options.
We had the House Made almond toasted muesli with fresh berries and yoghurt (served in a jar, I'm a big sucker for jar food) and the Hunter Valley fresh eggs with kale and truffle oil.
We took extra special note in the "need to return to try this" part of our brain of the following menu item: seared wagyu rump steak panini with smoked chilli, roasted Jerusalem artichoke purée, organic avo, baked organic beetroot, balsamic with caramelised onion, smoked mozzarella cheese.
The whole cafe has very eclectic decor, and I was delighted to find spoons adorning the coffee like I used to collect when I was little. Hubby collected basket ball cards, I collected spoons- match made in heaven!
Overall, the service was great and we had a long chat about the awesome coffee (they only use single origins for both the black & milk coffee), the food was delish, we sang along to Beatles tunes, and the bill was less than 40 - winning!
Will we be returning? Absolutely!
