Seasonal Garden Cafe Norwood
**Seasonal Garden Cafe Norwood is due to open in September, 2017
Since opening in 2012, the owner of the The Seasonal Garden Cafe, Silvia Hart, has added two smaller, cafe-style offshoots: Seasonal Hahndorf and Seasonal Stirling.
Now Hart and her team have recently taken over the 143-square-metre former Howards Storage World site on The Parade in Norwood.
Saving fans a Hills drive, Seasonal Norwood will seat between 50 and 70 people. The retail fit-out will be gutted to make way for a kitchen and a homey set-up of vintage tables, couches and cushions.
The frontage will be replaced with a western red cedar window, an on-street coffee pass and a breakfast bar that’ll open up during summer. Pot plants will pad out the street-side seating area.
Most produce will be from the cafe’s Hahndorf garden. The rest will come from farmers’ markets, trusted suppliers and local growers such as Salad Greens & Kitchen Herbs, Udder Delights cheese, Tweedvale milk and Rustico bread (made with Pangkarra flour from the Clare Valley).
In line with the “Seasonal” brand, the Norwood location will serve cooked breakfasts, bruschettas, gourmet sandwiches, frittatas and soups, as well as cakes and raw treats. Juices and smoothies are a given.
Hart will also sneak a few TSGC favourites onto the menu, such as the pancakes and the quinoa and falafel burger.
Everything can be tweaked for vegetarians or vegans, and there’s a strict allergen approach: if it doesn’t have a dish on the menu that fits, the kitchen will make one up.
The Seasonal Garden Café will open in Norwood on Friday September 1. It will operate from 6.30am to 5.30pm seven days a week.
