Surprising cafe in Smeaton Grange
The middle of an industrial complex is not usually where I would expect to find a funky café. Nor do I expect fantastic fresh food and a licensed café at an indoor go karting complex. Yet this is exactly what you will find at Juicy Goose.
Juicy Goose is a licensed café located in Smeaton Grange near Campbelltown.
I had heard many good things about this relatively new café and have been wanting to check it out for a few months now. I had the opportunity to stop by on a Sunday just recently. As mentioned earlier the café adjoins a go karting complex, namely Ultimate Karting Sydney. However don't let this put you off - you don't have to be a go kart patron to visit the café. Once inside you will not be aware of the go karts next door. Juicy Goose serves breakfast and lunch seven days a week.
The feel is funky and a little rustic and the menu options are varied and contemporary. There are two seating areas, on the ground floor and upstairs.
For breakfast you can choose from pancakes, eggs and wraps. For lunch the menu includes steak, salmon, burgers, pizza, pasta and salads. The café is proud to use local produce and fresh ingredients from the Macarthur area.
Juicy Goose is also known for its great coffee and loose leaf teas. Additionally it is licensed and serves craft beer, wine and spirits.
My family and I only had a short time before our karting session so we were not able to enjoy a full lunch. We did have time for a quick bite of the bruschetta which was very tasty as well as a plate of hot chips. Sadly I didn't even have time for a coffee before our karting session was called. Yet it is a great excuse to head back another day when we have more time to fully enjoy this great little café.
Breakfast is served from 7am - 11am on weekdays and from 8am until 11.45am on weekends. They are open until 4pm on Mondays, until 9pm from Tuesday to Saturday and until 5pm on Sundays. Bookings are welcome.
The Juicy Goose Café is located at 40 Anderson Road, Smeaton Grange and adjoins Ultimate Karting Sydney. You can check out the website here or follow on Facebook and Instagram.
