Hearty cafe fare made by a chef with Michelin star training.
There’s a brand new eatery in Cronulla by the name of Blackwood Pantry. The cafe-restaurant is the domain of chef Rob Lechowicz, a local lad who’s spent the last few years honing his skills in Michelin-starred establishments in London and Paris. Now he’s taking everything he learnt abroad and bringing it back home.
In the food department, expect an all-day menu made up of some seriously appetising dishes. The vegetarian Buddha Bowl is made with fried eggs, quinoa, kale, roasted cauliflower, picked red cabbage, toasted almonds, lemon and buttermilk dressing; while the ‘Miss Piggy’ consists of crispy pork belly, roasted peaches, chimichurri and goat’s cheese on toasted ciabatta. You can also grab a range of gluten-free salads, including a roast beetroot number made with yellow beans, pickled onions, goat’s cheese and toasted pistachio.
Those of you with a sweet tooth can indulge in their daily pastry offerings, or even grab a fresh fruit paddle pop. Okay so technically that last item is on the kids menu, but we’re sure they’ll let you order one for yourself if you ask them nicely.
Drink options include coffee, tea and a variety of fresh squeezed juices, plus a cookies and cream milkshake we can’t wait to try for ourselves. If you’re looking for something a little stronger, they’ve also got beer, wine and cocktails, as well as white sangria with peaches by the jug.
