Ironwood Cafe and Coffee Roasters – Woolwich

Ironwood café

Located on Woolwich Point,  Ironwood café has a great view of Clarke’s Point Reserve and some magnificent harbour and CBD views.

As you walk into the café, the array of coffee beans and tea is vast. You’ll have to make it past the cake and sweet counter to grab a table.

IMG_3744Staff are super friendly and happy to spend some time with you going through the menu. The ambience at Ironwood is great, the tables are large and the restaurant isn’t over crowded.

The coffee … The coffee is house roasted, you will definitely grab more than one. The coffee is full of flavour, nice earthy tones and balanced on the palate, no acidic aftertaste.

IMG_8947Ironwood has an extensive breakfast menu, with a Mediterranean influence. I really enjoyed the dukkah eggs, two eggs served on a generous portion of bacon, stacked on toasted sourdough, topped off with crumbled fetta, dukkah, honey and some mint. This was the waiter’s suggestion, I thoroughly enjoyed it!! I was pleasantly surprised with how complimentary the sweet element was to this dish. The mint really added some freshness.  I would have liked it thinly sliced so I could have had a little mint in each mouthful.

The haloumi BLT, was a huge portion and super scrumptious. The Turkish roll was fresh, soft, fluffy and smeared with Aoli. The haloumi BLT came with a generous amount of bacon, haloumi, and salad. It was well seasoned and scrumptious.

The greek baked eggs were divine. Packed full of flavour, great herb, garlic and tomato undertones. The house roasted tomatoes are delicious.

The desserts. For once I’m actually a little speechless. The desserts are house made. The fruit tart was excellent, the short crust pastry shell was light and crunchy, a generous amount of custard and had loads of fresh berries on top. The Nutella croquembouche was rich and indulgent.

IMG_3746With a huge range of sweets you’ll definitely save room for dessert and visit Ironwood more than once to get through them all.  Portions are generous and menu items are all well priced. 

I cannot wait to go back to Ironwood to grab a coffee, try the dinner menu and sample a couple more desserts.
