Shenkin Glebe (CLOSED)
Time Out says
Follow that fresh-baked-bread smell to this café on Glebe Point Road
If this outlet of the Shenkin cafés chain smells particularly good, that’s because it’s also the site of their bakery. So expect plenty of savoury and sweet burekasim as side dishes to your Israeli-influenced main meals. This family-run business now operates five cafés and two dedicated espresso bars – the coffee-focused Glebe edition is just next door.
You can start the day simply with eggs your way, or splash out and try the unusual brekky dish called lafa. It’s a wrap that can feature falafel, grilled chicken, or a mix of lamb, beef and onion. Plus, you can add a side of beer-battered chips for your daily intake of potato. For lunch, try a vegetarian option like the rain bowl. It’s one of those wonderful veggie messes that throws together carrot, falafel, crispy potato, Brussels sprouts, avocado and artichoke into a Moroccan-spiced winter salad.
To round out the meal, order a double shot of Shenkin’s special coffee blend. They’ve achieved a happy balance of bold caramel notes, stone fruit and smooth milk chocolate. And don’t forget to bring a reusable vessel for a 50-cent discount on your hot beverage.
