Tucked away down the end of a laneway, in the eco-design Daintree Building, it’s safe to say you won’t stumble across this place by chance. Despite – or perhaps because of – this, it is very popular, and the tiny, quirky-cool interior, though charming, can get a bit claustrophobic at lunchtime; so I strongly suggest arriving at off-peak hours.
However, additional seating is available in the cleverly designed courtyard area outside if the weather permits (and they will provide hot water bottles if required!).
Open for breakfast and afternoon tea, there is an all-day menu including Portugese sardines on toast, tapas with “an Irish twist,” or the hot pot of the day. An impressive range of teas, and small selection of wines, are also available. The home-baked cookies and cakes are delicious.
