Brewtown Newtown


Hottest place to be in Newtown. Seriously.

I've always knew this place as the Berkewlouw book store back in my hey day. When I entered Brewtown Newtown, a chic cafe set in an industrial warehouse space, I was wowed by how packed it was. I loved it from the moment I was greeted by Aidan who let me know when my table will be ready. A pre-warning, there is always a queue at Brewtown Newtown. 

The cronuts or better known as Brewnuts, were utterly love at first sight. Matcha Berry Jam and Lemon Meringue were glorious, with delicious filling oozing out from the centre. 

I had the most delicious and fresh Breakfast Juice made of kale, apple, celery and ginger. 

I went for herbal infusions. Can't say no to "Apres Meal Infusion" with exotic flavours of lemongrass, peppermint, ceylon cinnamon and rosehip.

The new all day breakfast + lunch winter menu is out at Brewtown Newtown, and lets get real, that's why I'm here. 

David, one of the awesome Brewtown staff recommended the Slow Roast Lamb Shoulder and Coffee Rub Brisket. Both meats cooked to perfection. I'm in love with the salad that comes with the Roast Lamb Shoulder - dukkah pumpkin and peas, sprinkled with goats cheese and hazelnut. 

The Coffee Rub Brisket was served on toast with beetroot, caramelised onion, mushroom and eggplant puree. The poached eggs that come with, goes so well with everything on the plate.

For something really pretty and healthy, I picked Zucchini Flower filled with all the yumminess of chickpea, goats cheese, avocado and tomato salsa on sourdough toast.

Overall, Brewtown Newtown has great atmosphere. It's the place to be if you love a great brunch with family and/or friends. Gorgeous artisan pastries and beautiful roasted beans. The service is tops! I would come back again, anytime.
