Head barista Chai enjoys ‘painting’ with coffee, the inspiration for the art stemming from whatever frothed milk may form as it meets crema. The results are Picasso-esque portraits, animals, flowers and the occasional abstract. See more of his coffee art on his Instagram here.
Classic brunch items like Eggs Benedict with spinach and ham $15 are easily customisable with additions of +halloumi ($3.50) +bacon ($3.50) like we had. The specials making an appearance were the vividly fuchsia Beetroot cured salmon, dark rye, cream cheese, avo, caviar $20.50 and the Buttermilk and cinnamon pancakes, banana, berries, coyo and pistachio dukkah $19.50 featuring the double whammy of being picture perfect and satiating sweet tooths.
