Just Down The Road is by Josh Baker, who is also involved in Whistle & Flute, Clever Little Tailor, Pink Moon Saloon and the Port Admiral Hotel.

But where those others are sit-down affairs, JDTR is a takeaway joint. Find the aptly named cafe less than a minute’s walk from its sibling cafe, Whistle & Flute.

The sun-sprayed glasshouse on Greenhill Road is designed by Sans-Arc Studio. Matte-green tiling climbs from the floor up the counter. The ceiling and back walls are timber-clad, and a white powder-coated Synesso coffee machine tops it all off.

The discovery of a super-soft, crunchy-crusted loaf of white bread from The Village Baker shaped the menu. Almost everything served here is stuffed between thick-cut slices of it (or its rye equivalent). Made-to-order sandwiches come with big, punchy flavours, and portion sizes to match.

For breakfast the egg and mortadella with Swiss cheese and aioli is “our take on the bacon-and-egg roll”, says chef Stewart Wesson.

There’s also a classic pulled chicken with avocado, iceberg lettuce, cucumber and aioli, and a stack up of Italian deli meats such as mortadella and salami with artichoke, olives, provolone and spicy tomato sugo. There’s a daily sanga and salad special.

Five Senses single origin coffee is pouring, and the batch brew is changed daily. A haul of pastries and doughnuts, like the bread, come courtesy of The Village Baker.
