MELBOURNE | When hidden (perhaps too hidden) Brunswick gem HOST closed earlier this year I was quite disappointed as I really enjoyed going there many a time for a cocktail and bite to eat. I was quite happy to hear then, that something new had opened in its place. Theodore’s puts the focus on daytime rather than evening dining (at least for now), with a menu that features an assortment of deli style, café dishes.

The City Lane was invited in to have a look, and thankfully apart from a few minor changes the space looks exactly the same as HOST did, which is a very good thing. Owners Lily Stokes and Henry Brooks have a keen interested in sustainability and this is reflected in the ethos of the restaurant. 80% of the menu is plant based, meat and dairy is sourced from local farms, and their green waste system ensures that as much of the waste they produce is composted and returned to their suppliers who can use it on their farms and vineyards.

Despite the menu being small, just a single A5 sheet, there was a lot that looked enticing. A highlight was the pretzel sandwich filled with a fried egg, hash brown, chipotle sauce, and cheese. The pretzel is baked on site and softer than a typical pretzel which makes it work well as a “bun”. The hash brown is dense but no heavy and works well as a “patty”. Also tasty was a simple dish of anchovies, confit shallots, and parsley on toast. Nice and tart, it balances out the saltiness of the anchovies well. To finish it was a bowl of house made pot set yoghurt with fresh seasonal fruit and honey.

For drinks it’s local craft beer and wine, along with house made sodas and a selection of teas. Coffee beans come from roaster Supreme, with filter and espresso options offered with a choice of milks, dairy and non-dairy.

Paul has a strong inquisitive nature that drives him to look beneath the surface in order to discover what really makes a city and its people tick, and what better way to do this than over a good meal or drink, with a city’s locals, at places that people who live in that city actually frequent. Paul is also a co-host of The Brunswick Beer Collective, a podcast that may or may not actually be about beer.
