So long, Bedford St. The Collingwood bar and cafe owned by Wide Open Road Coffee Roasters has undergone a facelift, and a fairly drastic one at that. Gone are the mac and cheese pancakes, fried chicken and toasted Wagon Wheel pies, now replaced with healthy food options less likely to clog up your arteries along with a seriously souped-up coffee menu.
Now known as Terror Twilight, the newly renovated venue features a menu from Wide Open Road chef Pia Hambour. Standout breakfast dishes include three grain porridge with fresh figs, winter fruit, toasted seeds and coconut flakes, and a roast chicken sandwich with pistachio, bacon, prune and lemon mayo.
Later in the day, diners can customise their own bowls, choosing from bases like steamed brown rice or sautéed broccoli, sides like roasted sweet potato or grilled haloumi, and proteins like grilled salmon or Sichuan marinated tofu. Alternatively, you can opt for a broth. There'll also be the option to upgrade your coffee with nootropic supplements and natural health-boosters, such as chaga mushrooms and MCT oil. If that's not your thing, you can grab a refreshing smoothie or a cold press juice instead.
