Grandma’s is built on the premise of offering Middle Eastern and European homemade meals. The food is not your traditional brunch fare and has more spice and bite than usual, but that’s what makes Grandma’s so unique. The cafe is large, inviting and the staff are really friendly which makes it a great place to bring the whole family. They have recently brought their homegrown organic food concept from their hugely popular Collector store to Sydney.
Families tend to congregate out the back near the play area. Grab an iPad mini and order away or check out the sweet and savoury goods on display. We opted to share the Beef Shakshura and vegetarian omlette roll. The Shakshura is a traditional Isreali breakfast of mince, eggs, chorizo and tomato. The perfect spicy way to begin the day.
The kids menu ranges from $9.90 – $11.50 and there is not a nugget or chip in sight here. What a welcome change. Choose from soup, Shakshuka, chicken or beef casserole and spaghetti Bolognese.
On the weekends and public holidays you can park within the ‘Alex’ building for easy access with children. It is a bit trickier on weekdays with free on street parking along O’Riordan street until 3pm.
When you have finished eating you can pick up some frozen meals to bring home or some of their famous sauces, apple and cinnamon ice cream, Turkish delight cookies and more – all made on site!
