130 Bennetts Rd
Norman Park Station
This gem of an eatery operates out of a cute weatherboard shop that it shares with a day spa of the same name, with the café section confined to a cosy front parlour and a zen little courtyard strip on the side.
While the chief business may be the day spa the food at the café is tops and well deserving of a side trip down to this residential bit of Bennetts Rd, especially for those looking for variety without a higher price tag at lunch time.
By day the menu is a derivation of Thai and Vietnamese street food, with lunches of hot or cold wraps, including the signature hot duck wrap, fresh prawn baguettes, noodles, DIY rice paper wraps and Asian salads. All day breakfasts such as the divine prawn chilli omelette or banana pancakes come straight from a Koh Phangan beachfront restaurant – perfect with in-house specialty Thai iced coffee. Otherwise there are plenty of Anglo pleasers including tomato and basil scrambled eggs or a Breaky baguette stuffed with egg, sausage, bacon and BBQ sauce.
