Two Birds One Stone
White panelled walls feature on one side of the 80-seater cafe; cosy booths and patchwork stained glass on the other. Sandblasted oak stools by Scandinavian designers Norm nestle along window-facing benches, while light fittings from local designer Christopher Boots hang above an expansive communal table.
Five Senses provide the bulk of the beans and the menu includes espresso, clever drip coffee, aeropress, syphon, pour over and cold drip. Two Bird's understands that while some people will appreciate a single origin pour over, others just want a really good, hot, skinny latte.
The menu is impressive but down to earth, with stand-out dishes like the impressive house-made crumpets with rhubarb jam, marscapone and candied macadamias, or crispy pork belly with Asian slaw and chili on brioche, and the down-to-earth eggs benedict or bircher muesli. They do everything they can in house: smoking their own salmon and ham, making their own relish and baking all their own pastries and cakes (including their famous cheesecake brownie).
