Subterranean brunch hub Six Feet Under opens in Newstead
It seems only fitting that a cafe called Six Feet Under would open on Halloween, but before you start envisioning a morbidly themed outpost with ghoulish fare, read on. Newstead’s newest coffee and brunch nook is a modish meeting spot with a multitude of inventive dishes that step outside of the typical cafe square.
As the summer sun starts to beat down on us more forcefully, we tend to seek out shady hideaways in which to relax and cool off. New cafes don’t get much cooler than Six Feet Under – the fresh 150-seat hideaway that opened this week on Masters Street. Situated discretely in the basement level of the building once home to Black Milk Clothing, the secretive spot has been designed to discover by chance, but those that find the cafe are greeted with a welcoming and laid-back atmosphere that belies the understated entrance. A cavernous modern-industrial space with polished concrete floors, timber, steel and black accents hosts a long coffee counter and pastry bar, as well as a two-tiered seating area and a sizeable alcove for large group bookings. The space converts into a 150-seat function venue by night, with plenty of room to plan the soiree of your dreams.
Whether or not you’re up and ready for the day early or are buried under the covers feeling sorry for yourself post a night of indulgence, Six Feet Under’s breakfast and lunch offering is enough to resurrect and rejuvenate. The kitchen has constructed a multi-faceted menu of familiar dishes with some seriously tasty flourishes. For the curious, we’re talking beignets with cinnamon, salted caramel and mascarpone, scallops with black pudding and pea panna cotta, fried-chicken katsu rolls with tonkatsu, and cured salmon with gin and passionfruit gravlax. If you need an extra kick to bring you to life, Six Feet Under’s also got plenty of Genovese coffee, Mayde’s organic loose-leaf tea, Prana Chai, organic low-sugar drinks from Soda Press Co and juices from The Cleanse Kitchen.
