Sophisticated menu in Gaythorne cafe

It's a kooky coincidence that this private dining room, caterer and café is located on the corner of Grub Street at Gaythorne and that the word "grub" dates back to the seventeeth century and is itself slang for food. That's where kooky ends. Grub Street is a relaxed cafe with a pleasingly sophisticated breakfast and lunch menu. In regards to breakfast choices, the item which caught my eye was the cauliflower and goats cheese, India spiced fritters ($18.00). Lunch shift gears into some mighty burgers ($15.00-20.00) and wholesome Turkish sandwiches ($14.00).
Grub Street offers table service and the team are affectionately known as the "Grubby Crew" with t-shirts attesting to their title. There are a range of seating options. Inside is a private dining room which faces the street. I sat outside (where most people sit) where a shade sail covers a paved area along with a seating at the rear of the café on a covered deck.
