We adore flavours that invoke our childhood memories

By choosing local farm fresh ingredients in hyper season, we are able to showcase our produce in ways that will comfort and surprise you; making sharing a meal fun. 

There's a "Classics" menu for those that appreciate the tried and true, but we're at our creative best when our installation of blackboards are "flipped" each month to highlight our chosen ingredients in time honoured ways.

You’ll find all manner of methods from fermenting, pickling and jamming to salt preserving and smoking with jars of our menu specific preserves lining our shelves for your own pantry.

We also invite the community to be a part of our seasonal romance by bringing us the excess from their garden harvest, in return for jars off our shelves.

Our seasonal Kitchen


Our seasonal Kitchen



The Heart of The jam Pantry

As a team, we are continuously learning and even though we have many years of experience between us, there’s still so much we don’t know.
Our Flipping Boards give us an excellent excuse to hone our skills and perfect new ones, we adore utilising the real cooking techniques of a time gone by in our quest for emotional flavours. 

You’ll find Kombucha and other fermented sodas brewing for our drinks menu, crocks filled with seasonal deliciousness fermenting all manner of things, jams and marmalades being made ready to jar or salt preserving citrus for a well thought flavour bomb. There could also be this season's herbs drying for next seasons use and SCOBY's being grown so you can begin your own fermenting journey at home. 

It’s a continual dance and we love every spin in the rhythm of the season.
