Set in a prime location on Leura's main drag, the Red Door cafe is a homey place with a red and black interior, a large mirror hanging on one side of the wall and green garden vines reaching down towards the floor on the other.
It's an ideal spot for those who are seeking a healthy alternative. Standouts include the zucchini and feta fritters with cumin yoghurt and mesclun salad ($16) and the smoked rainbow trout salad with lentils, rocket and a poached egg ($18.50). For something heartier, try the cafe's take on bangers and mash ($19) — Tuscan-style sausages atop creamy mash and caramelised onion — or the steak sanga ($19).
While drinks are less inventive (coffee, tea, milkshakes and sodas), they stay true to the cafe's the-healthier-the-better mantra, with both the sodas and coffee being organic and the juices freshly squeezed.
