WESTPORT & LEE CAFE
Published on May 11, 2018 | in Eat
Located on Latrobe Terrace in Paddington, Westport & Lee Cafe is a haven for coffee and food connoisseurs alike. Owned and operated by mother daughter duo Stephanie and Hannah, Westport & Lee is nestled in a canopy of lush, native vegetation, boasting an enviable outdoor entertainment area complete with a timber deck, Tiki torches, and an alluring white bagola for more private occasions. The large family tables are flanked by a sea of white umbrellas, and customers can enjoy the fresh air and warm company in any type of weather. The other two dining areas comprise the main cafe and a sun room, thereby allowing customers to sprawl throughout the space as if it were their own peaceful retreat.
Westport & Lee’s menu is equally as enticing as the easygoing atmosphere. The breakfast menu features a cache of fan favourites, such as the Avo Stack served on organic sourdough and embellished with crumbled feta, rocket, tomato salsa and a sharp balsamic reduction. Waffles also make an appearance, and can be enjoyed with scrambled eggs, crispy bacon, and Canadian maple syrup, or with caramelised banana, fresh berries, vanilla bean ice cream, and a charming drizzle of Nutella. What makes Westport & Lee so singular however, is its penchant for in-house innovations. The lunch menu is reigned over by the dijon herb crusted salmon, which is seasoned with a medley of fresh herbs, Dijon, ancient grains, and served with butter almond sauteed greens and lemon and dill cream.
The drinks menu is diverse and colourful, featuring everything from coffees and sundae shakes to bottled beers and Bloody Marys. On Saturday and Sunday customers can enjoy share plates, including pulled pork quesadillas with tomato salsa and guacamole, and $10 cocktails. Located in the heart of Paddington’s bustling food district, Westport & Lee is the perfect retreat for those craving wonderful service and an unforgettable time with friends and family.
