Močan & Green Grout

Thanks to the creeping vines, hanging planters and vegetable patch out the front, one might easily mistake this folksy corner café-restaurant for a  community garden. By day, organic Two Before Ten coffee arrives next to buttery scrambled eggs with bright nettle purée and cubes of smoked  trout. By dark, you could be eating in your bestie's living room: a half-dozen Tuross oysters with vibrant pickled wakame and a glass of Chablis here, an entire grazing feast there. Make the most of the BYO and grab a bottle from A Baker's off-licence, then watch as chefs at the central marble island spoon smoked yoghurt over sunny heirloom carrots and liquorice root, dot wild fennel flowers over blushing kingfish, and, if you've snagged a lucky seat at the bar, they'll pass you the likes of charry ginger-spiked pears come dessert. Start to finish, this is just what your local should be: informal, spirited, heaving with character and screaming for return visits.
