The Verdict

The Moody Chef eateries in St Leonards offer simple, seasonal breakfast and lunch classics done well, with something to please every mood. The Moody Chef café has been such a hit with the locals that it has spread to three locations and offer catering too, so you never need to go without them. 

1/30 Atchison St

Sit back with the breakfast or lunch menu, and plenty of space to really relax. We can't resist the shakshuka with Moroccan lamb sausage for a lazy Saturday lunch, preferably paired with a nice Aussie pinot. For lunch dessert, you can't go past the Nutella and mascarpone pancakes, drizzled with real Canadian maple syrup. The weekly specials are worth keeping an eye out on too.

While you wait, browse the Moody shop for a double dose of feel-good deliciousness. Every product sold contributes $1 to the Cystic Fibrosis Foundation NSW. We take this as an invitation to really stock up, and you should too. Add a Moody relish, pesto or dressing to your salads and sandwiches the rest of the week, or sweeten up your friends and family with one of their house made jams.

207 Pacific Highway eatery

Head up to the counter where you'll find a cornucopia of The Moody Chef's daily-changing salads, pastas, and famous hot rolls. It's the perfect way to banish sad desk lunches, but you can also stick around for the indoor meets outdoor urban space.
