In front of this wall is the communal table where the eight of us enjoyed our brunch. I was delighted to find on the table little gift bags for us with a Tim Tam and a pretty iridescent candy cane. Kara, the owner, greeted us and told us about the shop and its traditional Australian offerings. She started us off with a dish of hot buttered sourdough toast with Vegemite, the well-known Australian spread made from yeast extract. This was my first time trying it. Vegemite had never really interested me because I am not really into foods that are über salty and that happens to be Vegemite’s defining attribute. Though it was a little salty for my taste, the saltiness paired nicely with the tang of the sourdough. View my full recap here.
