Gourmet Hipster

You know I'm led everywhere by the ravenous monster that is my tummy.

Today I visited The Kitchen.

It is on Sir Lowry Road and boasts the title of being a Woodstock institution.

The first thing I noticed is that they’re in a kitsch part of Woodstock, smack-dab in the middle of the Art Gallery Precinct.

They’ve got a really cafe, Food Lovers Market vibe that veers so far from restaurants and cafes elsewhere.


The service is good, the ambiance is that of a Hipster dive joint, and it’s on prime real estate – making it the perfect lunch place for 13h00 worker folk.


While the ingredients are lovely fresh colors, it’s the taste that keeps them coming.

Their salad compilations alone are enough to send weird vegan/vegetarian/Presbyterian/fruitarian/whatevertarians into a tizzy.
