Simply put, The Establishment West End is the restaurant to go to for the best fusion of Italian and Australian food.
Serving breakfasts, lunch and dinner you’ll find Italian inspired breakfast and lunch items as well as a traditional Italian dinner menu from Wednesday to Saturday. As if it couldn’t get any better, it is easy to find on Boundary street and is only a short walk from Southbank and public transport.
It is easy to relax at The Establishment. It is a unique mix of both upbeat and relaxed atmosphere with comfy seating and big windows to let in a cool breeze. Not only do they have great food, they are also well known for their coffee which just happens to be their own blend. They can also make fresh juice combinations of your choice. A vegan menu is also available.
A popular side dish turned breakfast meal is the Haloumi Bruschetta. This is the Bruschetta we’ve all been waiting for! The Establishment has kept it simple which is exactly how it is supposed to be. Although to ordinary people, Bruschetta doesn’t seem like a hard dish to master; trying to perfectly balance the flavours of diced tomatoes, red onion, torn basil, olive oil, haloumi and a lemon wedge on thick toasted ciabatta can sometimes be over thought and turned into a complicated mess.
For those who are unsure if they should go for a sweet or savoury option, the French Toast with cinnamon brioche, double smoked bacon, grilled banana, vanilla mascarpone and maple syrup will give you everything you need. The cinnamon brioche is crispy on the outside and cloud-like on the inside. The salty bacon cuts through the sweetness of the banana, vanilla mascarpone and maple syrup. The best thing about this dish is that not one flavour overrides another with all items on the plate complimenting each other wonderfully.
The Establishment has the whole package. Although the menu sits at a slightly higher price point, once you see the portions and taste the food it will soon become your ‘local’, even if you aren’t from around the area.
There is no doubt you'll quickly fall in love with The Establishment West End. The food, vibe and coffee is everything you want from a cafe/restaurant.
