[Invite] Housed in what felt like a quiet small town/suburban street is Sawmill Café. Themed around the sawmills that used to be in the area; you’ll note their signage with the corten saw and the rustic timber look inside, and there’s even large saws built into the balustrade here. The venue has pared back the fitout, removed the gyprock ceiling to reveal a timber soffit which adds to the venues homeliness. Sawmill is casual café with an Italian edge and converts into an Italian restaurant at night; the breakfast/lunch menu however focuses more on classic café favourites, pancakes, burgers, salad, stacks and fritters.

Built into The Sawmill’s balustrade are these artifacts which lend the space some character.

A look around the venue. You’ll note their bar and woodfired oven when you enter and the rich timber look of the space.

Fritters – Zucchini & corn fritters, poached eggs, fetta, tomato & capsicum relish $22

From across Sawmill’s brekkie and brunch menu. Surprisingly, we didn’t quite think it at the time but outside of the burger, every option we had for brunch was vegetarian and we didn’t miss sausage or bacon. The haloumi plate came with generous slices of grilled zucchini and aubergine and that comboed well with the meatiness of the halloumi and mushrooms. Similarly, Fritters was vego and had perfect poached eggs. The Sawmill burger is a classic aussie burger with beetroot, was juicy, tasty and came with a nice mound of chips. For those with a preference for a sweeter option, Pancakes were light and fluffy with an abudance of fruit.

CAPRICCIOSA – Smoked ham, ligurian olives, mushroom, artichokes, tomato base $22

Out of Sawmill’s woodfired oven. Crispy Pizza with ample topping. We’re not familar with the area where this sits but locals must be stoked have this here. The pizza was our favourite dish today.

A trio of drinks; from Mojitos, to a summery spritz and their espresso martini.
