There’s more to Cru than first meets the eye. During the day it’s a bustling cafe. By night, it’s an intimate wine bar and dimly lit dining room.
Pop in on a Friday afternoon and you’ll see exactly how diverse the offering is. In one corner there could be a group of parents and school kids sipping on milkshakes. In another, a group of suits enjoying knockoff drinks.
Breakfast is served until 11.30am Monday to Friday, and all day on weekends. The menu offers an assortment of small options such as brioche buns and granolas, through to a variety of egg and toast dishes with customisable sides.
For lunch you can expect a variety of salads and sandwiches, in addition to more hearty dishes such as the CRU burger. Soldier on Coffee supplies Cru’s beans.
By the mid-afternoon Cru begins its transformation into neighborhood bar. There are more than 350 wines on offer, alongside bottled beers and a classic cocktail menu. The space is also licensed for takeaway if you need a bottle to go.
The bar menu offers smaller items and sharing plates, through to larger dinner dishes influenced by French and Italian cuisine.
On Sunday afternoons the courtyard opens for weekly Sunday Sessions, welcoming local DJs and serving half price basic drinks.
