The General Cafe

We start the day with setting the grind, fermenting, baking, house music, world music, local ingredients and local talent… all blended into a mix that we hope nourishes our community. Our ovens are rolling at 4.20am with Mrs Bread’s pop up bakery sneaking into the kitchen before chef puts on his starchy whites. Mrs Bread bakes our organic sour dough bread and also supplies the local general store. Food offerings change on a regular basis in tune with the best produce available – avocado, tomato, fresh cheese and rye, a local favourite, free range scrambled eggs with a delicious array of sides, Chinese Bolognese, raw zucchini noodle and Ploughman’s Lunch are standard offerings. Tony’s a chef in tune with natural taste and textures, his experience stretches from The Bayswater Brasserie, to ashram cooking and to his own Two Hatted award winning Lochiel House restaurant he owned with Mrs Bread for 11 years. Tony also has a passion for kombucha and has started fermenting and bottling his own delicious range which is available in the Cafe and from our little shop.
