If you're a north shore local or frequent visitor, consider yourself onto a winner, with the launch of verdant new cafe gem, Goodfields. The work of father-and-son duo George and Anthony Karnasiotis (The Butcher's Block), it's a charming, contemporary corner spot perched just across from Lindfield Station.
Inside, good feels abound, with the cheery mix of polished concrete, crisp white tiles and foliage spilling from above. From 6am daily, the coffee window is open and the machine up and running, tempting early morning commuters with brews from Five Senses.
Meanwhile, the kitchen is turning out a memorable all-day brunch offering that sits classics alongside fun, modern revamps. There's an indulgent butter-roasted lobster tail, served with a seeded bagel, poached eggs and house-made crustacean hollandaise ($26); and an avocado smash done with ricotta, peas and mint ($17). Lunch might call for the slow-roasted lamb shoulder pita ($18), crisp-skinned salmon with beetroot hummus ($25), or a twice-cooked pork belly burger, boasting pickled slaw, aioli and thick-cut chips ($18). Littlies are sure to be kept busy, too, with options like house-made buttermilk chicken nuggets and maple syrup-drenched hotcakes.
To accompany those long lunches or thirsty post-work pit-stops, you'll even find a tidy range of beers and wines.
