Cheap Eats Review

The room evokes the feeling of a small country town cafe with its dripping wax candles and rustic furniture. Down the back is a small deli, which fights for attention with the seasonal menu. We kicked off with asparagus and poached eggs $15 and Petuna smoked salmon with beetroot fritter $17. Simple and delicious, the asparagus was perfectly cooked and the fritter, covered generously with smoked salmon, vanished as it hit the table. Fig, prosciutto, rocket and polenta salad $17 was more a layered sandwich than salad but delightful nonetheless. There is a heavy presence of meat on the mains menu, the fish of the day being the only seafood option. Service is eager and chatty and there’s a good selection of classic cocktails. Good for a quiet night out.
