Growing up in the area and as a young child going to the the Ashbrook Avenue Deli, you would never believe that such a cute place would be created from the old Deli. It’s not just a café, it’s a shop and a cooking school.
You walk in, there is such a great vibe and wonderful to bring children to. They have small tables for the kiddies to draw and play on. Great children items to purchase and not expensive at all.
Most important the FOOD….. My mother and cousin Gilda both got the Grilled mushrooms with caramalised onions, spinach, basil pesto and goats cheese and all this beautifully layered on top of toasted bread. Cousin Tony had the hotpot slow braised beef pie and it came with two side salads of coleslaw and a quiona salad and I had the pumpkin, carrot and yellow lentil soup (served with toasted bread). Tony raved how tender the meat was in his pie and full of flavour and the salads fresh and different flavoured. My soup was full of flavour and the yellow lentils was a nice touch to the soup. Always a family affair!
Usually on Tuesday we don’t have dessert but, we were naughty this time and totally worth it! Gilda had the coconut and orange cake and I had the hazelnut chocolate cupcake with a long black decaf (the coffee was nice and not bitter!). The cakes homemade, soft and delicious! There is a great selection, especially if you want something gluten or diary free.
Sorry no photo’s, I was too busy enjoying the food hahahaha… Next time I will take some and post.
They are open Monday to Friday 8.30am – 4.00pm.
