Inspired by sandwich shops in New York's East Village, Luncheonette has all the ingredients of a great local cafe – friendly service, Coffee Supreme brew and a sunlit window seat that is fodder for many a deskbound daydream.
Good ingredients extend to the menu with dishes such as baked eggs with asparagus, tomato and gruyère, waffles with osewater-rhubarb, citrus creme fraiche, toasted hazelnuts and organic maple syrup or the homemade granola featuring locally and Queen Victoria Market -sourced ingredients. Luncheonette also offers simple lunch baguettes that are anything but, with an amazing BLT, reuben, sopressa or smashed chickpea salad.
The white-washed walls, vintage diner relics and hand-painted signs complete the comfortable, ‘cute-not-kitsch’ vibe. For a humble, warming and delicious experience, wander in from the leafy streets of Kensington for a coffee, a nibble and a bit of comforting New York style retro relaxation.
