This eastern suburbs cafe serves great coffee and healthy, vibrant meals.
Second Wife is sleek and beautiful in its fitout, with an industrial style and a big portrait of, supposedly, the wife in question on one wall. The cafe is the owners Semir Elamazi and Reiji Honour's second venture as a team, which has inspired the name and also means the pair already know what they are doing, and it shows. You'll find touches on the menu inspired by both Elamazi's Middle Eastern background, and Honour's Japanese heritage. There's a focus on healthy, vibrant dishes, and everything is halal. For breakfast, try the okonomiyaki or Moroccan eggs, or for lunch, get around a bowl made your way — select a base, some toppings, a sauce and a protein.
