Cribb Street Social is a convivial neighbourhood eatery and bar tucked away in the midst of Milton’s business precinct.
Well worth seeking out for its top notch menu of delicious eats, charcuterie and boutique beers, wines and cocktails in a stylish al fresco style setting, Cribb Street Social (a sibling of popular city venue Mr Edwards Alehouse & Kitchen) is one of the best casual dining spots in Milton, with something for everyone.
Perfect for a weekend brunch, date night, family or friends dinner, business lunch, mums groups, after work drinks or a laidback Sunday session, Cribb Street also offers great packages for special events and functions.
Stylish timber décor and an al fresco covered pavilion surrounded by landscaped gardens make for an ambient dining/drinking setting while the stunning bar area features a dry aged charcuterie cabinet.
Weekend brunch here is a real treat, with standout options the Loaded Cobb Loaf (oven baked cobb loaf stuffed with bacon, egg, three cheeses, baby spinach and fried green tomato ketchup), Avocado and Feta Smash (citrus smashed avo, crumbled feta, soft poached eggs, blackberry reduction, orange gel and lemon balm leaves on toasted rustic fig bread), the Benedict (soft poached eggs with citrus hollandaise, artisan bread, sauteed chorizo and stewed fig compote), and, for something sweet, a decadent trio of raisin and cinnamon French toast, vanilla buttermilk pancakes and chocolate chip waffle with butterscotch ice-cream, strawberries and raspberry couli.
Weekday breakfast is a more pared back affair, designed for those who don’t have time to linger, such as bacon and egg baguette, house-baked artisan bakeries, French toast, mushroom tortilla and acai bowls, along with a handful of dishes from the brunch menu.
Lunch on Monday to Friday shares some dishes with the weekend brunch menu – grilled cheese cuban, open beet and lentil burger, fettuccine pasta with rosemary tomato sauce, and superfood salad, and 200g Angus rump steak – as well as mussels, artisan pie and delectable desserts.
The signature charcuterie menu is available all hours, with a selection of artisan cheeses from Italy, France, USA, Spain and Australia and charcuterie, all served with home-made molasses soda bread, quinoa, crispy baked artisan bread, Kalamata and Sicilian olives, Peruvian pepper drops, home-made pickled root vegetable ribbons and stewed apple, apricot and fig chutney.
The dinner menu, available from Wednesday to Saturday, is European inspired, with Starters such as charred flatbread, whole baked brie medallion, apricot and red lentil salad or braised pork cheek. Meanwhile Main choices are so tempting its hard to choose: think smoked spiced beef brisket, lemon sole, Moroccan sous vide lamb, gorgonzola and crisp sage pasta or ale and liquorce-infused pork belly.
And not to be missed are unique desserts such as a selection of cheesecake pops, profiterole and éclair tasting plate, and whisky paddle (paired with artisan chocolates).
