It’s really impressive. They turned a non-descript corner of Broadway Mall into a hipster chic dining area. As designed by George Michael (yes, seriously), and modelled after NYC’s Eataly, it’s a perfectly designed little food experience with a barista, a bakery, a bar and a bunch of other stalls. The first time we ate here, it looked like some of the places were still getting established, but now it’s a hub of activity – and efficiency, with a glamorous host who shows you to a table and a team of very hardworking and fast-moving waiters.
I worry a little for the other humble food stalls, of which we’ve tried a few, when we’re doing our Saturday morning shopping at Harris Farm Markets (and a stop at the butcher perhaps, or buying a new pot for my succulents from Kmart). But it is a big mall, and this place only seats so many. But really, what a fantastic idea and feel. The pastries look mouth-watering! The coffee was delicious.
My better half had an apricot danish, very nice, and I had this perfect bowl of granola. Yum.
More recently I had scrambled eggs with toast and avocado, pretty as a picture, and a pat of Pepe Saya butter on top (a dollar extra but worth it!). This has become our new regular Saturday morning breakie spot. Look for us here!
