Shelter is a massive craft beer bar and eatery housed in a warehouse in industrial Morningside with live music on weekends.
A community hub for locals, the cavernous venue is child and dog-friendly with plenty of room for families and friends to get together and enjoy a few brews and a bite to eat.
Bar bites include cheeseburger spring rolls, prawn twirls with chilli caramel sauce, twice-cooked pork belly bites, and smokey bbq chicken wings; while more substantial fare ranges from chicken parmi and pizzas to burgers: beer, karaage chicken or barramundi.
Shelter also offers plenty of plant-based dishes like deep-fried cauliflower bites, a Korean-style kimchi plant-based burger, and a vegan platter for two piled with bruschetta, cauliflower bites, jackfruit tacos, roasted capsicum, and sweet potato fries.
For non-vegans, there's a grazing board loaded with prosciutto, salami, Brie, red Leicester cheddar, mixed olives, hummus and crispy Turkish bread.
Meanwhile, a dedicated kids menu consists of ham and cheese pizza, chicken poppers, cheeseburgers and chips.
On weekends, Shelter dishes up delicious breakfast fare from 8-11:30am including classics like bacon and eggs, smashed avo on Turkish, and banana and choc hazelnut calzones served with coconut ice-cream and mixed berry coulis, perfectly accompanied by locally-roasted Fonzie Abbott coffee.
