There is a small brunch menu which is not dissimilar form sister cafe, West End Deli. The name of the game is in-season produce, prepared well. There isn't a lot of over processing or cooking. It's all very wholesome and fresh.
The portions aren't huge and the style more about snacky type brunch offerings like house baked baguette with a pick of side - roasted tomatoes with goats cheese, mushroom ragout with blue cheese and black bean cassoulet. Quality and refinery are the preference over large quantities of hearty foods. This not the place for a hangover brunch but for a lighter , healthy mroe sophisticated fare.

Probably more impressive were the display of cakes. A gluten free chocolate, raspberry and coconut variety particulary caught my eye. There were other unconventional cake creations, as well as meringues, Portuguese tarts and top-heavy muffins.
Service is quite slow; I don't think they are set-up for a busy brunch trade and it's still early days. Overall the food wasn't super delicious but I like that it was very light on the grease and different to what i'd make at home. The barista is a serious whiz too. I'd stop here for a take-away coffee any day!
