Open every day of the week for breakfast and lunch, Barn Doors Cafe is like a second home for many living or working in Redfern. It’s like a visit to your grandmother’s place – big portions, cosy surroundings, familiar faces – if your grandmother happened at the time to be visited by some trained chefs from all over the world. In addition to superb coffee, popular morning-after cures (bloody marys and mimosas are grandma’s tonic for a hangover cure) and a well-executed modern Australian brunch menu, Barn Doors Cafe calls on a few international inspirations to take their lunch offerings slightly away from the norm on Redfern Street, like a tasty Caucasian-Mediterranean mash up of halloumi, roasted pumpkin, avocado, Spanish onion, quinoa rissoles and zingy lemon dressing that doubles as a health boost. Barn Doors Cafe has lovely outdoor seating and a great function space too, so it’s great for group gatherings and special events as long as you book ahead!
Hidden away in a very quiet and peaceful place. We were lucky to have found this cafe. I ordered the burger with a side of lentil walnut mince, and a lamb salad. Large portions and very deliciously cooked food.
