New café alert
Torrens Park has a new café experience that is local, seasonal and funky. Nana's Kitchen Table is located just outside the Mitcham Square Shopping Centre. It is housed in a renovated heritage building at 97 Belair Road, Torrens Park. They have an all day breakfast menu, which is always a plus as breakfast is my favourite meal of the day and they pride themselves on using seasonal produce and locally sourced ingredients.
It is always a buzz to find a new café that is providing great coffee and beautiful wholesome food. The menu has a good-sized breakfast options, cakes and a smaller lunch menu. The breakfast seasonal fruit salad is so beautifully presented it seems a shame to eat it! Very fresh ingredients with almond flakes and yogurt and just the right amount of fruit. At $12 this was reasonably priced.
Any café needs to gets the basics right. Nana's does so with excellent coffee, they use Degroot coffee. Currently they have a special on for early birds, $2 regular coffee between 7.30am and 8.30am. Nana is also setting the bar high with Goodieson beer and Hither & Yon wines on the menu. The wine and beer list is small but excellent.
Décor and Surroundings The café is located in an historic renovated building. The look inside is polished wood floors, wooden tables and large dining chairs. There is also a breakfast bar area and mock chandeliers which are stylish, plus art on the walls. A sort of modern meets retro funky look. The only down size is it seemed a little cramped and the service counter is fully on view from all sides. The Nana touch includes little jars of raw sugar and homemade jam on each table.
Service with a Smile Nana's had lovely welcoming service. Water was offered and brought with the menu. This café is a real find and is already very popular. Worth a visit before or after the movies or your local shop. Opening Hours – 7.30am to 3.30pm
