Two Birds One Stone
Two Birds One Stone is a bright, sophisticated cafe that still retains a sense of homely warmth. White panelled walls feature on one side of the 80-seat room; 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, filter coffee and Aeropress. The Two Birds team 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 dishes such as house-made Bircher muesli and a Spanish omelette with apple relish and chorizo. 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.
