Cafe 2773 Glenbrook Glenbrook

Posted 2014-04-12 by Chloe`follow
The township of Glenbrook is pivotal to the Blue Mountains. This area is the first impression for many tourists making the pilgrimage through the heritage listed national park. For those in need of stretching their legs and feeding a caffeine deprived mind, then look no further than Cafe 2773 Glenbrook , located at 19 Ross Street. Cleverly named after the Glenbrook postcode, the cafe also employs a strong philosophy of supporting local businesses and produce where possible.

Walk down a paved path that leads to a renovated older home, on the right you will find a new wood fire oven, and to the left picnic like benches for the outdoor dining fans. Everything is new and bright, creating a very inviting ambience.

Welcome to 2773

Wood fire oven

Picnic benches for outdoor dining

Greeted by the young waitress and shown to a table inside, I couldn’t help but notice the modern stylish theme continued throughout the interior - eye popping canary yellow finishes are matched with the black and timber furniture. There is a feature wall which is done in a chalkboard like style, featuring an old train map of the Blue Mountains, adding to the sense of journey of which many patrons would be familiar with.

In the warmer months the undercover outdoor section is fantastic, especially for families as it is located right next to the children's play area. A brand new enclosed section decked out with a cubby house and slippery dip, the little ones are sure to be kept busy.

The cubby house is great for kids

Cosy outdoor dining

My favourite part of the cafe is the pet pig pen, where a few little piggies have a large cage to run wild in. This is next to the chook pen, where there is a hen house and a large area for them to roam. A garden patch is also in bloom, giving the premises a farm like feel.

The cosy interior of the cafe feels like you are visiting someones home. Whilst the rain fell from the heavens outside, and the fog rolled in-delicious aroma’s wafted from the kitchen, making my appetite grow.

The decor adds to the rustic ambience

The menus are designed into three categories with breakfast and lunch, dinner, and drinks.
The Breakfast menu features standouts like Poached Duck egg ($10), Franks and Beans ($15) and Buttermilk Pancakes ($15). Burgers are a popular selection on the lunch menu starting at $17.50.


Opening up the dinner menu I discovered that the meals are designed with the concept of sharing. The suggestion is for three-four plates per couple with options like: Crispy Duck Shanks ($22), Soft Shell Crab ($20), Dr Pepper Caramelised Pork Ribs ($24) - or the Italian style Quail ($23). Vegetarian options include Stuff Field Mushrooms ($16) and the Quinoa Salad ($18).

Blackboard special The Plank

Blackboard Specials feature The Plank($32), which is a mix of daily favourites. This week (as at the time of writing this) they featured Lamb cutlets with minted yoghurt Harissa, Scotch Fillet with Cafe de Paris butter, and Salmon Fillet with tempura prawns and hollandaise sauce.

In the mood for comfort food I choose from the Pizza menu - a gourmet selection of clever flavour combinations like: Chorizo, pepperoni and pork ($19), Prawns, scallops, crab, squid and broccolini ($19), Wagyu Beef, roasted garlic, mushrooms and chives ($19); and for vegetarian lovers the Tomato, Mozzarella, Bocconcini, basil and olive oil ($17).

Chorizo and Pork Pizza

Three pizzas are more then enough to share between three people, and are a good standard pizza size. The Chorizo and pork pizza is a delicious option for meat lovers, with the pork belly pieces just melting in the mouth. One of the highlights is the slow roasted cloves of garlic married with the Wagyu beef - a rich and strong flavour combination of sweet and succulent ingredients. As a devout cheese fanatic, the flavours of the mozzarella, bocconcini and basil are incredible, and of the three toppings this would have to my favourite.

The delicious Tomato and Mozzarella

The drinks menu offers something for everyone, with standard soft drinks, coffees and teas; to the alcoholic range of Wines, beers and ciders.
For something bubbly try the Lock and Key Sparkling, a light and citrus drop at $7.50 a glass or $28 a bottle.

Still enjoying the homely, comforting ambience of the evening, it would be sacrilegious to say no to a coffee and desert. There are a great range of deserts to choose from which cover all styles of tastes. Choose from the Pineapple and passionfruit Cheesecake ($9), Mixed Berry and Frangipane Tart with ice cream ($9); or the Chocolate Fondant tart warmed with vanilla mascarpone ($9).

Cake Chest to choose from

Struggling like always to make room for dessert, I ordered one serving of the Fondant tart to share between three. This is a rich desert, and it needs the mascarpone to cut through the density and slight dryness of the batter. I am glad this was shared because it is overtly sweet.

Chocolate Fondant Tart

These guys know how to make a good coffee, with care and crafting going into each and every cup of java. My soy latte was full bodied with a roasted flavour. Delicious and enjoyable.

Everything about 2773 Glenbrook is refreshing. Its ambience; bright and welcoming contributed by the bubbly staff, and the food is fresh and flavoursome. An excellent dining option for the weary traveller, to a long sunday brunch with friends, it’s a place for all occasions.
