A fellow foodie recommended me visit the Joseph St kitchen in Palmy and I’m so glad I did. I keep wanting to call it Saint Joseph St Kitchen! I also didn’t realise it was in the burbs and my trusty GPS had me going around in circles for a bit. However I persevered as only one true foodie blogger does as someone had nicked the street sign?!
This cafe is a converted house in a residential area on the outskirts of Palmy. The outside setting is very welcoming and as you enter you are welcomed by large blackboard menus and a cabinet laden with scrummy food.
There is an open kitchen behind the counter, and that’s when I spotted the most yummiest looking BLAT being made. That had my name on it and they adapted it for me without bread. It was delishimo.
They also offer a lovely array of salads, pizzas, quiches, frittatas, soups, toasted sammies, lasagne, fish pie and spanakopita.
My coffee was fabulous and you could also have tea, fruit juice, smoothies, iced choccie, soft drinks and a banana coffee which they said is like a banana coffee smoothie. Yummo. Next time I think.
The cakes and slices were very tempting and there were a few GF, DF options, however I had to decline on this occasion. BTW they are also BYO.
You order at the counter and then seat yourself in the large lounge near the kitchen or the lounge at the back. You can also eat al fresco.
Make sure you look up as they have a cluster of chairs hanging from the ceiling, which is quite nifty.
It was very busy on a Monday and there was an eclectic mix of clientele; elderly folks, yummy mummys with their kids, Nanas and corporates alike.
The service was fantastic; the peeps here are so welcoming and passionate about their work. May St Joseph bless you all.
