Sub-Station Cafe may no longer be functioning as a electricity sub-station about the vibe still hangs on to its ‘electric’ roots. Lightbulbs hang from bedsprings above the open-plan kitchen and the exposed brickwork and cream walls bring an industrial feel. Upon entering your eyes will be drawn immediately to the freshly baked goods and sandwiches on display which are all made in-house daily. Then check out the blackboard for their menu and specials.
Sub-Station is a favourite take-away coffee spot for local parents however it is also great to eat in with a few friends. The courtyard is not huge however it can easily accommodate a few prams, especially at off-peak times. There is no separate kids menu however there are a few great options for little ones such as toast, baked goods and ham and cheese croissants.
The focus here is on using the freshest ingredients and a DIY approach to meals. Their specials often entail presenting colourful ingredients on your plate for you to ensemble yourself. The food is clean and fresh.
If you love simple sandwiches and salads, you will love their humble menu. We enjoyed their pumpkin, spinach and fetta sandwich on linseed bread ($11). Other options include ham; beef; chicken or goats cheese ($11 – $12.50). Make sure you check out their daily specials on display.
Sub-Station is perfect for a relaxing and healthy meal with the family which is bursting with flavour.
