If you’ve passed by this hip café by day, doing dinner Wednesday to Saturday night, because of the often inversely proportional relationship between uber-coolness and good food and service, perhaps (like myself) you’ve been too hasty?
Not only was my Hazelnut Milkshake ($6.50) an absolute revelation; my Steak Sanger ($16) with rocket, grilled onions, scotch fillet and relish on an excellent roll, ordered a mere two minutes before the kitchen closed, was delivered by undeniably stylish staff promptly without a hint of annoyance.
The set-up is counter service with numbers, and a range of seating that spans from private tables to enforced communality. The warehouse-style space is busier on the weekend, but my second recognisance of the art and memorabilia filled room, was also blessed with
great Iced Coffee ($6.60) and a plate of neatly folded Strawberry Crepes ($13) filled with lemon custard and drizzled with burnt orange syrup, delivered in record time.
An interesting breakfast plate of Asparagus, Prosciutto, Egg, Roast Tomato and Truffle Oil ($16) smartly let the produce be the hero. Suitably fuelled up, step next door to fondle the two wheeled sex machine of your dreams, and keep a lookout for their weekend pop-up Deus Ex Machina clothing clearance market!
