If you’re a non-coffee drinker, catching up with friends ‘for coffee’ can often mean you are faced with a choice between a couple of sad supermarket-standard teas or juice. Not here. At Butlers, the range of drinks rivals the fare, with a palate-pleasing selection of Tavalon teas, iced-teas which can be spiked with gin, vodka, tequila or Bacardi, cold-pressed juices, smoothies and loaded milkshakes. When it comes to the fare, the creative menu extends far beyond the standard breakfast/brunch/lunch options with an all-day menu that meanders from light bites of avocado sourdough and spanner-crab omelette through to fully loaded burritos, a substantial lamb press built upon slabs of toasted schiacciata topped with 12-hour lamb shoulder, pickled onions, shoestring fries (yes, you read right), rocket and lashings of chipotle mayo. The venue’s eclectic aesthetic, which is designed to transport diners far, far away from the Australian coastline, features gorgeous floral-adorned bench seating, a scattering of marble-topped tables, striking emerald green paired with brushed gold, rustic timbers and gorgeous French-style windows adorned with greenery.
