I enjoyed the most magical of mushrooms at New Farm the other day. To clarify, I'm not referring to the psychedelic variety, but rather the organic edible fungi that makes up the 'Wild Mushrooms' dish at Honor Food Co.. Suitable for both breakfast and lunch, this satisfying meal featured a rich tangle of Swiss Browns, oyster mushrooms, enokitake and others so exotic I couldn't identify them, served on house grain bread with greens, hazelnuts and burnt butter sauce.

Perched just a hop, skip and a jump from New Farm Park, the irresistibly elegant Honor Food Co. is a newish kid on the block. Subtle, understated and tucked away despite its Sydney Street location, this suburban gem consists of a stylish shopfront and airy courtyard dining area. On the weekday I visited, the tables were laden with white lilies, and there were only a handful of patrons, some of them tapping away at laptops as they savoured lunch, a late breakfast, or coffee with a slice of cake. On weekends, tables filled with laughter, conversation and great food spill out onto the footpath, so be aware you might need to wait to be seated during these busy times.

Honor Food Co. offers breakfast, lunch and brunch seven days a week, with its menu an ode to simple, fresh and local food. Start the day with a selection of French pastries, or perhaps banana bread served with whipped coconut and orange butter, house-made bircher muesli or smashed avocado on sourdough with feta and dukka. If you're seeking something more substantial, lunch options include savoury mince, the harissa chicken and bacon burger or a fresh daily selection of salads or sandwiches.

My sublime latte came courtesy of Venezziano coffee and, for those with special dietary requirements, almond, soy and other non-dairy milks are available. Really want to take al fresco dining to its limit? Honor Food Co. can package up its meals for those who wish to enjoy a picnic in New Farm Park or even provide a special three-tiered picnic parcel including antipasto, sandwiches and sweets.
