Fine and Fettle
Sam Worrall-Thompson, who runs Jack Ruby and Port Elliot’s New Year’s festival The Sailing Club, knew he wanted to open a cafe in the east. When a space came up next door to a gym he owns in Stepney, the ground was laid for Fine and Fettle.
To transform the space’s office feel, interior designer Georgie Shepherd (Fred Eatery, Hither & Yon, St Louis House of Fine Ice Cream and Dessert) opted for timber-clad feature walls, overhanging greenery and a Hygge Studio-designed logo.
The menu is split into two sections – breakfast and salad bowls. The breakfast offerings trade in smashed avocado for kingfish sashimi and sweet potato rosti. Coffee comes courtesy of Thebarton-based Presstwood, alongside health-conscious juices and smoothies. The venue’s liquor license will be reserved for functions.
Made-to-order salad bowls come with meats grilled over Japanese charcoal, such as yakatori chicken and beef short ribs.
