Nana And Da's

Kedron

Nana and Da’s is an absolute gem of a charming neighbourhood café found tucked away in a residential back street of Kedron.

An old weatherboard shop that was a bakehouse in the 1930s and 40s has been opened up to the street with bi-fold windows, the hoop pine floors polished, and Huon pine walls recycled into café tables by owner Jackie’s dad.

Not only is Nana and Da’s a kind of home away from home for locals, thanks to Jackie’s warm welcoming nature, it is also a mecca for great value café fare, prepared by chef Kellie whose past gigs have included Brisbane faves Sassafras and Simpatico.

Food-wise the emphasis here is on fresh, with produces sourced twice weekly from local markets and the menu is seasonal, including the fresh made juices which are a house specialty. Breakfast is served all day every day and options include the likes of Market Fritters (caulifower and cumin) served on lime and coriander yoghurt with dukkah crusted poached egg or pancakes with grilled figs, prosciutto, maple syrup, pistachio crumble and ice-cream.

For lunch expect delicious dishes like house-smoked salmon, fennel, beetroot, capers and cherry tomato cheek salad or parmesan crusted baked pumpkin, spinach, pine nuts and goats cheese salad.

Otherwise behind the counter are sweet temptations such as beetroot lamington, upside down caramelized banana cake (gf), berry muffins and triple choc macadamia brownies.

Being in an area that is home to young families and three schools, Jackie has made every effort to keep things affordable and cater for children too, with boxes of toys and books under the counter, room for prams and a tasty but healthy kids menu that is dirt cheap and includes baby butty, bacon and egg on mini Turkish roll, coconut pancake with peach and yoghurt, avo on sourdough or boiled egg soldiers. The healthy carries over into the drinks area too with strawberry milk shakes made on house-macerated fresh strawberries and special fresh fruit and vege juices that children love.

Meanwhile for adults there’s Cup coffee and loose leaf tea.

Four-legged family members are made welcome here too, with a bowl of water out front next to the kangaroo (whose presence or absence indicates whether the café is open).
