Tucked away between Elizabeth and Edward streets, Kitchen Door at Embassy Lane is a hidden gem that offers a retreat from the hustle and bustle.
Find the Embassy sign and walk down the adjoining covert Embassy Lane to discover an industrial-style cafe decorated with wall-to-wall art, neon exposed ceiling pipes, and fairy lights surrounding the steel railing.
You can sip on a fresh cup of Toby’s Estate and Espresso Rico coffee blends, or select one of the baked confections, from gourmet fruit loaf to banana bread and muffins.
For the carnivorous at heart, the Embassy Lane chefs serve up healthier options such as a toasted ham, gruyere and Dijon mustard sandwich.
Open: Monday to Friday, 6.30am-3pm; Saturday, 8am-2pm.
