Far from the forest, in the opulent suburb of Armadale, is a stylish café that serves Naked Espresso, and creatively designer dishes.
The fit out is clean, and lined with pale timber panels, and crafty wallpaper. The light features actually reminded me of branches, so there is a forest association, even if it is figuratively and not literally
The open back kitchen prepares both traditional and contemporary café food fare, such as Ricotta Hotcakes with banana, pistachio & chestnut flower honey, Mushrooms with truffled potato cream & rosemary, and Cured Ocean Trout with Scrambled eggs. Their lunch menu features Turkish sandwiches, Pumpkin and Ricotta Tortellini, and Herb crusted Rockling burgers.
Their house blend from Naked Espresso had dark chocolate and nut notes, with a lingering finish.
