filled with local artwork, comfy booths and charismatic staff, redd catt is a great spot to grab a coffee, cake or something more filling. open for breakfast, lunch and dinner (friday’s and saturday’s only) with both indoor and outdoor seating, this café caters to everyone with vegetarian and gluten free choices available.
breakfast is pretty standard fare (their latte art is not!) however, lunch raises the bar with a specials board to complement choices like prawn ravioli with sauce vierge, quinoa and smoked eggplant salad with pomegranate jewels and an amazing, if not a little daunting, soft shell crab burger with chilli jam.
dinner is a step up again with dim lighting, jazzy tunes and an ever-changing tasting plate. although the menu for mains is somewhat limited, it’s quality over quantity here. the house made parpadelle with a champagne pesto cream and roasted truss tomatoes is an example of how simple is sometimes best.
and if perfectly balanced and presented desserts are your thing, (they’re mine), try one of the 2nd year apprentice chef’s desserts – you won’t be disappointed.
