Back to basics at Refresh Cafe

Back to basics at Refresh Cafe

While James Street may be jam-packed with boutique retailers and gourmet restaurants, Refresh Cafe seeks to charm passersby with its simple and fresh approach to meals.

Tucked into the laneway between 15 and 19 James Street, the cafe is open for breakfast and lunch on weekdays. The menu changes seasonally and is constantly evolving with Refresh’s steady introduction of new meal ideas.

The classics are all there of course – fresh salads, sandwiches and wraps including a hearty Caesar salad special that will no doubt satisfy the hungry. If you’re after something a little plusher, snack on the tasty spanakopita for lunch, or the sweet-toothed can dine on an inspiring combination of coconut cake with raspberry and white chocolate. Wash all your taste-testing down with a coffee or a cold juice and you’ll be good to hit the shops.

In what could be a bargain hunters dream haunt, cheap deals abound in the form of coffee specials (sometimes as low as the unheard of $2.50) as well as on a range of tasty treats and mains. The best way to keep in-the-know when it comes to these offers is to watch the Facebook page.
