I love a pleasant surprise upon entering a new venue, and the upside-down pot plants hanging from the Tuck Shop's ceiling weren't it. When I ordered my orange juice the waitress informed me that their oranges were not only peeled but they were stripped of all their pith before juicing as well (that white stringy stuff!). I'm not sure if it was psychological, but the juice did taste super awesome that day! Very... orange!
The decor is clean and crisp, the ambiance is relaxed yet lively and the service is attentative. I was very happy with my panfried chorizo but the crispy roast pork belly with apple and walnut coleslaw is also divine. Self-labelled as a cafe/pie house/delicatessen, The Tuck Shop is a place for breakfast, brunch and lunch.
