When I visit Seddon’s swish new cafe, I’ve already lunched elsewhere.
But I enjoy a good cafe latte and a wonderful, very intense chocolate brownie.
And I have a good look around and, with the management’s blessing, take a bunch of pics.
Proprietor Ken, pictured here with Jordan, tells me business has been good in the few days they’ve been open.
At the moment, it’s a breakfast and lunch proposition (see menu below), closing at about 4pm.
But extended hours and a booze licence are in the works.
It’s a big place and the makeover of what was once the local video store is drastic and spectacular.
It’s has a bit of clinical feel to it at the moment but that’s only to be expected.
The main dining space adjoins the coffee/paying area and the semi-open kitchen.
Next door, and with big windows facing Charles Street, is another area with window seat and a big communal table.
Further back is another, more secluded dining area, while out back and outdoors are more seating, a play space including a sandpit and a fledgling herb garden.
Th outdoor space looks like an outright winner for the bub brigade – it’s big and there is no escape route for wandering toddlers.
