Australia is home to the big banana and the big pineapple but if there’s one fruit we’re truly obsessed with it’s the avocado. Our love runs so deep, we’ve chosen it over owning a home; we’ve turned it into art; and as of next week, we will have dedicated a whole café to serving its green goodness.
Yep, slicing open next Thursday is Australia’s first ever avocado-themed café and the name is arguably more brilliant than the concept: Good Fat. The café will be open from 2nd November until 30th November in Sydney’s Surry Hills, so technically it’s a pop-up, but if all goes well perhaps we can convince them to stay around and avo good time.
While it’s not coming with a giant avocado on the roof (sorry for the build-up), it will be complete with unlimited puns and a whole menu full of cado creations—all under $20—that apparently make smashed avo look “so 2016.”
So what could be better than smashed AV on toast? (Nothing, but humour us).
Sydney chef, Liam Crawley has created 20 deliciously daring dishes for breakfast lunch and dinner. Among them you’ll be able to try the Avocado Breakfast Skins—an avocado smoothie bowl blended with acai, banana and blueberry, topped with fresh mango, granola and hemp seeds, and served in an avocado skin—as well as the Avocornetto—avocado ice cream, shaved dark chocolate, sweet pumpkin shortbread cream, and praline, drizzled with salted caramel in a waffle cone.
And while most of us will get to try these by visiting Good Fat, they’re looking to hire one lucky “employee” to taste them for a job. Yep, the café is on the hunt for the ripest fruit ready for the picking who’ll be responsible for taste testing all twenty avocado creations.
