Snug – Opening Soon

Snug – a forthcoming cafe and wine bar taking shape on Chatsworth Road – is the brainchild of Leaham Claydon and Jianne Jeoung, two chefs with a shared resume featuring postings at the likes of Yoko, Greca, Clarence and Niky. Striking out on their own, the couple is converting a former trophy shop into a all-day dining venture that is loosely inspired by the couple’s recent holiday to South Korea. The duo hope to launch Snug’s morning service before Easter, commencing with a tight menu featuring soft pretzels, a rotating range of pastries and a Korean-inspired egg drop sandwich (buttery scrambled eggs sandwiched in brioche), as well as coffee from Melbourne roaster ST ALi. Soon after, Snug will open in the evenings as a wine bar, serving a menu of small share plates and snacks with a Korean touch, plus a concise but considered array of wines. Once Snug’s morning and evening service is humming, the duo plan to convert an external garage space into a wine store, offering space for functions, events and extra dining room during busy nights.
