Just as the décor here is cool and funky, the Middle-Eastern inspired menu impresses with equal measure. Nestled in a quaint open garden, Artichoke is a café and restaurant that is bold with flavour.
Take the Crab & Bacon toast, with crispy salty bacon. The toast is crunchy and buttery, while the fresh crab cuts through the richness of the dish to give it some balance. The Cauliflower Kushari is another winner-think nicely charred vegetables tossed with Egyptian jewelled rice, smoked egg, bits of lentils, crispy shallot and corn puffs, drizzled with savoury mango amba and spices.
On weekends, the brunch menu features nine main dishes that are crowd-favourites. Love a good weekend roast? Try the Crispy Lamb, served with a side of hummus and sweet grapes.
