The clientele at Three Williams is an interesting mix of parents with prams and trendy inner city types and on every visit the staff have manage to run the cafe seamlessly. Think polished concrete floors, dim lighting and wooden tables. If you visit on the weekend, expect to wait for a table, however they have a good system and you can take a stroll with a takeaway coffee whilst you wait. Service is always with a smile, even when they are busy, and nothing seems too much trouble for the lovely staff.
If you can, grab a table near ‘Willy’s Corner’ which is the toy corner with a huge blackboard on the wall. Its unusual for an inner city cafe to be able to dedicate so much space to little ones. Look out for one of the leather coasters with the kids menu. They can choose from bacon & eggs on toast; 3 piece fish Croquette; Mac N Cheese with Green Slime; and chip pies.
The ’narnie’ is the signature item at Three Williams. They currently have 4 flavours however I believe they are soon to launch new ones. We tried the grilled prawns with tzatziki, hummus & sumac; beef brisket, slaw, gherkins & mayo; and coconut & lime marinated chicken, carrot and daikon salad with nam jim dressing. They were all delicious and I have to insist you try a side of the beer battered chip with house made aioli. You can’t believe how good they are until you taste them. Just try stopping yourself finished every morsel!
The coffee is Single Origin Roasters and all their cold drinks arrive in cool milk bottles with striped straws. The house made peach soda was delicious and not too sweet. However, if you are after something sweet, the doughnuts look decadent.
Three Williams is cool. So cool in fact, you won’t find their name on the door, just the three ‘w’ symbol. Even so, the vibe is fun and families are made to feel really welcome. Check it out, you won’t be disappointed.
Parking: Limited 2 hour parking is available out the front and street parking in surrounding streets.
