I used to go to an osteopathic clinic in Stanmore across the road from Natty’s. I had checked the menu and planned to eat lunch there one day but I stopped my treatment and forgot about the cafe until recently, when a house hunting trip took us one block away.
Natty’s seems to have a solid local clientele. They do takeaway stuff but on weekends the bulk of the business seems to be eat-in.
Coffee at Natty’s is BBB (bueno, bonito y barato). Drinks ordered in our table included a capuccino, a long black on ice a long black on ice with a splash of almond milk and the non-caffeinated morning liver tonic, consisting on juiced carrot, celery, cucumber, parsley and ginger.
Long black on ice, long black + almond milk on ice ($4.20 each)
Morning liver tonic ($6)
The food menu seemed ordinary last time I checked but I think it might have been an outdated version. This time around things looked more appealing. Alvaro and I shared the big breakfast with free range eggs your way (we had them scrambled), bacon, sausage (swapped for extra bacon due to gluten content), mushrooms, rosti, smoky tomato relish and (GF) toast. Lots of garlic in the mushrooms, very tasty brekkie.
Big breakfast ($18)
Dish number two was the smoky paprika baked salmon salad with kipfler, green beans, mesclun, capers, dill and aioli. In one word: delicious.
Smoky paprika baked salmon salad ($17)
Both of our friends ordered the poached chicken salad with citrus, hazelnut, mint, mesclun and orange blossom dressing. Tried a bit, also great. Will be back next time I’m around.
