WE THINK: The way overdue visit to Brunswick house cafe didn't disappoint! Having heard lots about the concept, it was still a mind buggering first impression when entering the dining room. With all the interior for sale, as it is used as an antiques store room, the vibe of the room couldn't have been created otherwise... The only downside is that your mind and eyes are flying around the ever stimulating items which distracts ever so slightly from the yummy food! The combination of great rustic cooking with quirky produce makes the experience familiar yet not... Terrible contradiction but hopefully makes sense.
OUR TIP: Ask the sommelier for wine tips as their wine list has a few surprises...
