Byron Street's Small Graces is all about the simple enjoyment of food and self, brought to life by husband and wife duo Bec Howell and Diego Portilla Carreño.

Here, they've combined an impressive resume of fine dining experience with a vast knowledge of healthy eating habits. The result is a menu of inventive brunch dishes, toasties, and tasty small bites and sides; the latter designed to level-up a meal, or be mixed and matched for a share plate.

Menu standouts include the huevos pericos — Colombian-style spiced scrambled eggs teamed with avocado and fluffy corn cakes — and the curried roast chicken toastie with garlic aioli and stuffing.

Bread is sourced from Dench Bakers, with coffee from Kensington mainstay Rumble. You'll also find a larger than average selection of fine teas, as well as a number of house-made smoothies and juices.
