When I heard that the guys from Giddiup were opening a new cafe just off Clarendon St I made plans straight away to check it out on the weekend.
Giddiup is always busy on the weekend so we were hoping to beat the crowds and before the secret was out that Wynyard had opened.
Wynyard is hidden away on Wynyard Street, a tiny little cul de sac off Clarendon St, and is located right next door to Made in Japan, a really cool home wares store, selling Japanese (duh!) ceramics and furniture.
The food at Wynyard is also served on Made in Japan plates, so you get to see what it could look like at home if you bought some of those plates after brekkie!
The menu offers lots of delicious sounding dishes, which include plenty of healthy options. L had spotted the stack of hotcakes on a different table and his mind was made up. He chose the blueberry, ricotta and lavender hotcakes with creme fraiche and organic maple.
I loved the sound of the smoked mixed mushrooms and halloumi with a parsley walnut pesto on sourdough and a friend who joined us ordered the eggplant and parmesan fritters with a chickpea and chermoula salad. I love the great coffee and food served at Giddiup and I’m glad to report Wynyard is at the same level. Great menu with not just the usual items but well thought through seasonal dishes with a twist. Everything we tried was done really well and delicious. The smoked mushrooms were amazing!
