Cuisine: Breakfast, Cafe
Price Point: Mains from $15 - $35
An oasis of calm and purity, Café Oro serves soulful, environmentally sustainable produce including everything from delicious plates to organic coffee.
The vision of this eatery is clear; the beauty of nature is at the epicentre of all they do. The building itself curls itself around an 80-year-old Rimu tree while inside it's stylishly minimalist with paired-back wooden walls, potted plants, a patio that wouldn't be out of place in rural Italy and informal benches for a casual dining experience.
Get your day off to a wholesome and nutritious start with Oro's acai berry bowl that's brimming with blueberries, banana and crunchy granola. If you fancy something meatier, what do you think the workman's breakfast is for?! It comes with all the brekkie staples! If you want something a bit different, the shakshuka dish poaches eggs in a rich tomato sauce and serves them with spinach, feta and ciabatta.
For dinner, begin with some small plates that pack a punch. There's a flatbread kati roll stuffed with crispy pork belly and mango gee or spiced eggplant that's paired with refreshing cucumber and smoked yoghurt (definitely a first!) Choose from their range of organically sourced burgers for mains, like the adobo beef burger, Oro fried chicken burger or chickpea falafel burger.
