Terror Twilight takes its name from an album by the indie rock band Pavement. It's a light-washed daytime diner with a large pastel-pink espresso machine, indoor plants, warm wood features and a vinyl display.
The food is wholesome. There’s a roast-chicken sandwich with lemon mayo, frisee lettuce and pistachio, bacon and prune stuffing, alongside pastries from Cobb Lane Bakery. The breakfast sausage and fried egg, made with mince from Meatsmith and served on a house-made English muffin, this is about as calorie-intensive as the menu gets.
As well as all-day breakfasts, the kitchen makes chicken or shitake and kombu broths, which come with a variety of pick-and-mix sides such as bok choy, enoki mushrooms, bean shoots, and Thai basil or miso glazed eggplants. You can then pick one of three proteins – grilled Tasmanian salmon, poached chicken or fried Sichuan marinated tofu. Alongside coffee from Wide Open Road, the healthy drinks menu has smoothies, cold-press juices and supplement add-ins with productive-sounding names such as Alpha GPC and L-theanine, which is supposedly good for brain function.
