Palm beach, St Barts, The Hamptons, St Tropez: all places that would come to mind when you walk inside East Coast Lounge. Although out in Chowder Bay, on Sydney Harbour, the styling may feel like you are in a far away location. But why you would need to be, when you have such a beautiful outlook. Take a seat by the window for your brunch and watch the ferries float past, or simply take in our lovey harbour.
East Coast Lounge is part café/part high tea function space/gift shop features a fire place, couches, small tables and group tables. You can dine here for breakfast or brunch with a friend, or you can book a group lunch or high tea for around 60 guests for a birthday, high tea or similar.
We were here in the late afternoon and decided to share a charcutterie board, featuring a variety of meats: salami and pastrami with lavosh crackers, taramasalata, olives and two cheeses of our choosing. We went for the triple brie and truffle pecorino. Certainly a generous serving. We also got and crispy baguette breads warm and flavoursome Sobrassada Jar.
This went perfectly with a glass of bubbles (prosecco) and a “Dad and Dave’s Pale ale”. They like to stock all Australian boutique beer. There’s a great range of wines to select from. Or, you can also order coffees teas.
You can get a water-taxi here, bus or your own private vehicle, about 15 minutes from the Sydney CBD. According to the zomato website, they offer a free glass of South Australian Mr Mick Pinot Grigio or Mr Mick Shiraz with every main meal (Monday to Thursday until June 30).
