Clarence Rd Eatery
124 Queen Street
Northcote Point, 0627
Clarence Rd Eatery has a menu that will change daily, and plans to feature delights including truffle scrambled eggs and whitebait omelettes for breakfast, alongside fresh smoothies, juices and gelato shakes.
If you’re after something to take away with an Allpress coffee, next to the impressive brass counter will be a cabinet filled with tempting, freshly baked pastries, sandwiches and salads like roast butternut, faro, raddicio and ricotta.
From 11am, the Spanish Mibrassa char grill oven will be cranking, producing coal fired dishes including Hapuka caponata, beer marinated half chook or the daily butchers cut, as well as a selection of classic Naples-style pizzas.
After 3pm, diners wanting a light meal can choose from sharing plates like salmon carpaccio, or cloudy bay clams with sauvignon blanc and fennel or classic meatballs. The wine list is extensive with over 30 local and international wines offered by the glass.
Cathy Carter — Eye-catching round photographs by Cathy Carter provide portholes to a textural ocean, with the real thing only moments away.
Peter Collis — With blue hues and textured white tiles on the walls, matching Peter Collis ceramics on the tables give the eatery a distinctly summery vibe.
