1565, 3 Gower Street, Kensington. Phone: 9376 1965
Since first writing about the gelati emporium that is 1565, we’ve dropped in for the odd and very excellent cone or cup.
On a recent visit, we discovered that Kensington joint is doing lunches, too, so I am happy to check it out.
The 1565 lunch routine is the epitome of simplicity …
Soup ($10) with a crusty bread roll.
There’s arancini for $5 ($9.50 with salad).
And those same superb rolls are used in panini ($9.50) – your choice of schnitzel, eggplant or beef.
My beef schnitzel job is medium rather than large, but there’s no doubting the good, fresh flavours and prime eatability of the meat, bread, rocket, roasted capsicum and scamorza cheese.
As well, there is a small but wonderful range of biscotti and cakes, all made on the premises.
