We geek a bit over businesses that share the same name as us. We’re sorry. It makes us a tad giddy, perhaps its the camaraderie in arriving at the same destination or something #twinsies. Anyway... we first heard of the Husk craft beer brewery and bar in Wellington, and now there’s a little Husk cafe across from Epsom Girls Grammar. It probably means that our daydream of extending into a design-studio-slash-cafe is out the door, but hey. We loved their clean, scandy furniture and uncomplicated menu (a nice break from the eateries where we had to google every other word). These ladies make simple food and they do it well — plating was fuss-free but beautiful. Excellent for Newmarket locals with a good spot in the sun.
Louise had the Avocado Smash on Sourdough with feta, tomato and basil. She said "Would be a great walk-in if you work in the area, healthy food, great staff, eight-thirty coffee. Only point to make would be that the meals, though delicious, were a bit on the small side."
Katie had the Pancakes served with Banana, Bacon and Maple syrup. She said "The pancakes were decent! Satisfied my sweet-tooth."
Mel had the Avocado Smash on Sourdough with feta, tomato and basil. She also had the Banana, Peanut Butter and Date Smoothie. She said "Loved going somewhere new that is our name twin!! Go Husk! Thankfully this place lived up to the name, trendy, yummy and a great spot to meet for a bite to eat. Their smoothies were delicious. I wish them all the best."
Bri had the soup of the day, which was a Potato and Leek Soup, with a side of fries. She also had the Green Smoothie. She said "Nicely styled and presented cafe with friendly staff. Was fun to visit another ‘Husk’!"
Jeffrey had the Eggs Benedict with Salmon, with homemade Potato Rosti. He said "The food presentation was great."
