Goodfields Eatery launches in Lindfield
The Sydney suburb of Lindfield is home to a new cafe that’s out to challenge what consumers eat for breakfast.
Located opposite the train station, Goodfields Eatery is the latest venue from father and son team George and Anthony Karnasiotis.
The pair aren’t new to the cafe scene and were behind The Butcher’s Block in Wahroonga and Mr Spofforth in Mosman, both of which they’ve sold.
“We’ve always loved suburbia and we love the community feel,” Anthony tells Hospitality. “We’re trying to bring some excitement to the area.”
Goodfields is serving coffee by Five Senses and offering a breakfast menu that covers both sweet and savoury bases.
Bircher muesli and a hot cake with vanilla creme fraiche, passion fruit, blueberries and toasted coconut sits alongside butter-roasted lobster tails on a seeded bagel and lamb shanks with eggs, labneh, herb salad and pita.
“The focus is keeping it classic, but having some weird and wonderful things on there,” says Anthony. “Everyone has been excited to try all the new things, especially the dishes that challenge the perception of what breakfast is, so having lobster or lamb shanks for breakfast.”
Lunch kicks off from midday and covers cafe staples including burgers, fish and chips, a lamb pita and crispy skin salmon.
While the team is focused on nailing breakfast and lunch service, dinner trade is a possibility down the track.
“We have all the approvals to open trade at night, but it would be a big task for us to take on at the moment,” says Anthony.
The family affair is extended to staff, with a handful of ex-Butcher’s Block chefs coming over to run the kitchen at the new venue.
“A few of the chefs we have worked in the past were excited to reunite with the family and get everyone back together,” says Anthony.
Goodfields is open seven days for breakfast and lunch.
