In early 2020, New Farm eatery Vue Lounge underwent some renovations and a rebrand, transforming into Savour Cafe. The original owners, Matt and Dan Jefferis wanted to incorporate their popular patisserie range into the cafe’s offering while still maintaining the welcoming reputation they had built over 15 years. An interior makeover replaced Vue’s original dark palette with a Scandinavian-inspired aesthetic, foregrounding light timbers, white furnishings and plenty of greenery. The menu underwent come tasty tweaks too, with new breakfast dishes (panko-crumbed camembert with smoked leg ham served on a croissant and pork belly with poached eggs and hollandaise) and lunch eats (slow-roast beef cheek with potato rosti and lamb shoulder doused in cumin-spiced yoghurt) becoming early favourites. Savour Cafe has also updated its coffee choice, roasting and serving its own specialty blend alongside loose-leaf tea from neighbour Tour de Tea, muddled juices and healthy smoothies. Savour’s new patisserie range (made daily at Savour’s specialty baked-goods kitchen in Newstead) is ideal for fans of indulgence – the treats cabinet is chock-full of mini eclairs, macarons and individual desserts, with Savour’s eclair sundaes already a big hit with the locals.
