Located in the quieter section of Hindley Street, Peter Rabbit is where you can enjoy cafe-style food that is a bit different from the norm and varies with the seasons. Booking ahead through their website is advised to ensure that you get a table but a limited number of seats are available for walk-in customers.

The size of the charred cauliflower in the Turmeric Cauli was big enough for it to be easily shared. The cauliflower still retained a bit of bite and had a lovely charred flavour. The turmeric tahini complemented it nicely and the tri colour quinoa, kale, charred corn and beans added extra texture to the dish. Completing the dish was pomegranate for a touch of sweetness.

While its name may suggest a dish on a similar line to Tonkatsu, the Pork Katsu offered here was actually in the style of a Katsu Sando (sandwich). The panko crumbed pork was cooked just right with a lovely crunch and the whole egg gribiche partnered nicely with it. The sandwich also included potato crisps for a bit of extra crunch. Beer batter chips seasoned with a moreish salt mix can be added for an extra cost.

The texture of the sourdough crumpets in the Morning Crumpets was lighter compared to commercial crumpets, and the maple bacon had a delectable smoky flavour with a hint of sweetness. The spiciness of the spiced mascarpone and chilli honey should be suitable for most tastes and a scattering of roasted pecans added a bit of a crunchy element to the dish.

Aside from its menu dishes, Peter Rabbit also offers a few pastries. Their Coffee Bun was not too dense and the mocha cream filling had a good amount of coffee flavour without being too sweet. A topping of cream, cocoa and a chocolate coffee bean completed the dish.

The coffee served here was notable in that the coffee beans were sourced from smallholder producers rather than commercial growers. An information card was provided with the coffee as proof. Also noted on the card was the flavour profile of the coffee being served. A complimentary glass of sparkling water was provided with the coffee for diners to enjoy.

The décor of the café gave it a rustic feel. Diners have the choice of indoor or outdoor seating. If you are looking for a place offering unique and tasty cafe food, consider giving Peter Rabbit a visit.
