This latest little eatery to the Brunswick food scene offers lunch and light meals throughout the day with traditional French style food and charcuterie. And the best bit, everything is made in house. Yep, everything. From the fresh bread you're served to all the delicious little elements on their signature charcuterie plate.
Inside, its crisp white interior is bright and reminiscent of a place you could sit and sip coffee with a great conversation (or a good book).
What was once a former dance studio has been beautifully transformed into this cosy space that has the feel of a Parisian cafe. Walking inside you're greeted with a welcoming environment and a huge rack of homemade goods included delicious jams, chutneys, jellies and more.
Try some of these homemade jellies, sauces and more at The French Mil Bar and then stock up on these goodies before heading home.
The menu is small, which is great if you're the type who gets easily overwhelmed by too many choices. And the dishes, prepared by chef and restauranteur Anthony Humpries, are kept fresh, seasonal and simple.
It might look like a small menu, but it's full of goodies!
For a light bite for two, we sampled the signature dish, the charcuterie plate, full of all types of delicious bits and pieces such as a duck prosciutto, pork and duck terrine, black pudding, pate, and plenty of delicious chutney, tapenade and more. Anthony is busy curing other meats to be added to the menu later on so there's plenty of reason to keep coming back.
The signature dish; the charcuterie plate for two. They do a single one as well for those keen to try it solo.
The plate also came with some fresh bread, butter and strawberry jam (which, if you love as much as we did, you can take home!). We also may have nabbed a jar of crab apple jelly to take home. It's not too sweet and on top of pate, it's divine. It'll go perfectly on cheese boards too.
