Flamingo Cafe is a quirky laneway cafe by day and come sundown on weekends it's an ambient little supper club.
Like its namesake the Flamingo Café is a rare creature and not easily stumbled upon, yet a detour to quaint Winn Lane lands a wrought iron seat on the astroturf or a Chinese red vintage chair in a little tropical themed lounge, with some of the best food to be found in this neck of the Valley.
By day it’s a casual yet top notch café and by night it morphs into an enchanted little supper club with a 1960s soundtrack and a daily changing print out menu of home cooked meals that range from charcuterie platters and soup to dishes like hearty Italian meatballs, mussels and leg of lamb.
The rest of the simple yet delicious day menu also changes regularly, and, as in the evenings, everything is prepared fresh on site. Standouts on the breakfast menu are the avo and fetta with herbs and lemon on multi-grain rye or the breakfast Bap filled with ham and fried egg, parmesan mayo and tomato jam.
Lunches are just as high in the yum stakes, with the haloumi, picked beetroot and salsa verde on sour dough hard to beat or choose from the daily revolving specials include spinach and fetta pie or croque monsieur/madame. Meanwhile sweet stuff - brownies, cookies and muffins – is baked in-house daily and coffee is excellent Genovese.
