ITC’s favourite meal of the day is brunch (you may have noticed that). As we approach the end of the year and we catch up with family and friends, In the Cove thought it would be great to give you some brunch ideas. You may be surprised to learn that not all the good brunch places are in the Lane Cove Village. Here is our list of brunch places to eat this weekend in and around Lane Cove.
Four Frogs Crêperie
The menu offers a wide range of galettes, with lots of healthy, gluten-free and vegetarian options. The dessert crêpes are all delicious and made with the most popular ingredients such as Nutella, strawberries, home-made salted caramel, Belgian chocolate, whipped cream, etc.
At Four Frogs Crêperie, we don’t cut corners in our cooking. We do everything ourselves to deliver the best. For instance, we mill our own buckwheat flour, we make our milkshakes syrup, chocolate and salted caramel. All vegetables, sauces, slow cooked meats, etc. are also cooked in house. And obviously, our galettes and crêpes are always made “a-la-minute”!
La Provence has all your food needs covered from breakfast to lunch and anything in between. Stocking a range of beautiful fresh pastries and priding themselves on their high quality coffee made with love, La Provence and their friendly team is a local favourite.
Old Quarter Cafe
Old Quarter Cafe is a modern Australian cafe with infusions of Japanese and Vietnamese flavours. They have one of the most amazing Avo on toast dishes which has finger limes, goats cheese and toasted almonds. The menu does not disappoint with something for everyone.
Fink Cafe is located in the Lane Cove West shops. They have just launched a brand new breakfast/brunch menu and it looks great. They have all their old favourites and some new dishes you will enjoy. You can always follow up a healthy brunch with one of their signature hot chocolates.
The Junction Coffee Co
The Junction Coffee Co is located right in the middle of Lane Cove. They are the brunch specialists. The Junction Coffee Co used to be called Pablo and Rustys. They still serve Pable and Rusty coffee but they rebranded to the Junction. Treat yourself to a brunch here and you won’t regret it.
Ground Caffe is located in Lane Cove Market Square. It is located next to the Lane Cove Library. The cafe features amazing specialty coffee by Toby’s Estate Roaster and gourmet all-day-breakfast and lunch menu co-created by the new owner Maggie and Executive chef Jony Khan. This family friendly cafe, has an enviable large covered outdoor patio which is a perfect spot for you to enjoy summer weather with a cup of coffee, relaxing brunch, and delighted afternoon tea. Ground Caffe’s barista won the 2019 Coffee Carnevale Barista of the Year.
