Veluca Salt

The Butcher’s Daughter has had a name change. It seemed the easiest option to avoid a lawsuit from an American eatery with the same name. Its now known as Veruca Salt, and continues to serve up the same solid coffee from Wide Open Road, and an Italian Inspired menu. The cafe itself has a modern feel, with its marble coffee bar, warm wood tones, fern filled wall planters, and pink and blue pastel tones in the back dining section.

The Italian influenced menu reminded me of nonna’s cooking, with traditional offerings such as Panini with chargrilled Zucchini with Provolone cheese, Spaghettini with garlic and anchovy, and Rigatoni Lamb Ragu. Breakfast ranges from Eggs Florentine, right through to Crushed Potato with smoked trout and capers; and  Mac & cheese for the kiddies.

Coffee by Wide Open Road, with both espresso and bottomless filter options on offer.
The Bathysphere espresso blend is made up of beans from Brazil, Colombia, Ethiopia & Kenya.  My long black had a bold body with a sweet caramel finish.
