At East End Providore you can eat a bagel, buy an apple or find a recipe book dedicated to cheese. The carefully managed café and grocer has limited shelf space, but fills it up with the very best.

Owner Daniele Forte-Binggeli decked out the former fashion store with a Nordic-inspired interior that’s light and spacious. A communal table runs down the centre of the store, with outdoor seating spilling onto the footpath and delivering a perfect spot to watch the well-dressed people of Ebenezer Place stroll by.

The menu consists of a range of filled bagels from Olive & Edith, sourdough sandwiches, salads and a pasta ragu from Andre’s Cucina down the road.

Coffee comes from local roaster Cirelli and beans are also available for purchase. If you prefer something gentler with your lunch, East End Providore makes its own iced tea, offering flavours such as honey, apple and goji berry.
