There’s no actual seminal US comedian behind this cafe. It’s just a couple of locals with solid hospitality backgrounds opening their first business – that happens to be named after the Seinfeld co-creator and Curb Your Enthusiasm creator and star.
While the man himself looms over the single room from a mural by local artist Damian Cazaly, that’s where the theme ends. The emphasis here is on good service, coffee and food.
A battered Velvet Underground LP spins on a turntable by the door. The coffee is roasted locally by Atomica and the interesting 5 & Dime bagel menu is perfect for locals headed for a tram or train.
Fillings include eggs Benedict, turkey, mushroom and a fantastic cayenne pepper-spiced haloumi with avocado salsa and sour cream. There are some inventive juices on offer, too, influenced by Linsell and Davies’ former employer, Transformer.
