Harlan Pepper Food Co.
If the words bold and beautiful were ever used to describe a café, that café would be Harlan Pepper Food Co. Situated in the hip Kingsland foodie scene, get ready for Instagrammable dishes that will have you saying, “it’s too pretty to eat.”
With a selection that caters to both vegan and gluten-free diets, you’ll find yourself lacking any excuses to gather up some friends and have a mouth-watering brunch at this charming café.
On the menu you’ll find hints of various cuisines from around the world. Start with the Taco El Trio, three soft shell tacos stuffed with your choice of filling (choose from pork, tempura fish, chicken or tofu) and all the trimmings like chilli lime slaw or fried shallots. It’s a flavour explosion in your mouth.
Another option is the Rosti Stack, which kicks the classic eggs benedict to the kerb with a mountain of avocado, bacon and poached egg slathered with fresh lime-infused hollandaise, atop one heck of a potato rosti.
Should you want to take a slice of Harlan Pepper Food Co. home, or to work, or to your next party, you’re in luck as their catering and canapés are out of this world. They offer morning tea catering starring a selection of sweet and savoury treats like bagels, slices and organic fruit chia pots. For a more robust feed, opt for the lunch menu which features fresh, colourful salads, poké bowls, wraps, sandwiches and noodle boxes.
Level up your next party (and avoid the dishes) with their extensive event catering selection. Choose from canapés like wasabi seared beef skewers, smoked salmon blinis and jalapeno cheese bites. Next impress your guests with hot snacks like sliders, buffalo chicken wings and gourmet woodfired pizza. Should you need to feed a whole crowd, they also offer buffet style and sit-down dinner catering. The best part? They take care of the alcohol, leaving you to simply live your best host life.
Between gorgeous dine-in eats and an extensive catering selection, Harlan Pepper Food Co. is surely a contender for Kingsland’s local favourite.
