The Croft House Town Kitchen & Bar has launched in Brisbane’s CBD on the corner of Albert and Charlotte Streets.
The Croft House will offer cafe-style food during the day, becoming a bar with bistro-style table service, shared plates and drinks by night.
Head chef Richard Mellor aims to showcase regionally sourced, seasonal produce on the modern Australian la carte menu.
With beans from Hendra-based independent supplier Wolff Coffee Roasters, customers can order their coffee via the coffee window or within the restaurant alongside breakfast, brunch, lunch or with fresh pastries and baked goods.
“The Croft House is a comfortable space where you can get really fresh food, high quality beverages including tasty craft beer and an extensive selection of Australian and international wines and cocktails. We pride ourselves on being able to support growers, farmers and producers and sharing this with our customers,” venue manager Jessica Lyon said.
Dishes include the TCH breakfast; Quattro Stelle smokehouse streaky bacon, grilled tomato, field mushrooms, fried eggs and organic sourdough. Also on the breakfast menu is house-cured salmon with toasted rye, avocado, Binnorie (Hunter Valley) goat cheese and a soft poached egg.
Lunch options include slow-cooked beef brisket on a soft milk bun with aged cheddar, spicy sauce and fries, as well as a selection of salads and sandwiches. The Croft House’s charcuterie menu features an array of cured and aged meats and a selection of cheeses from Woombye, Gippsland, Milawa, France and Spain served with fruit chutney, walnut and rye bread and crisp bread crackers.
The beer list will feature Newstead Brewing, James Squire and Two Birds, alongside ciders and a few international favourites. The wine list, curated by Lyon, includes a mix of local and international wines, with whiskies and gins also on offer.
The Croft House is open for breakfast, lunch and dinner, seven days a week until late.
