Have you ever dreamed of a cafe/restaurant that’s only a stone’s throw (perhaps a lob?!) away from an incredible beach, with a menu to please literally everyone? Well wake up and dream no more because Gerrale St Kitchen is everything you’ve been wanting in an eatery/drinkery and so much more!
Located so close to Cronulla Beach that you can taste sea salt in the air, this establishment has covers all bases from awesome morning coffee and breakfast through to lunch and onto dinner where you can even order your favourite cocktail.
Gerrale St Kitchen only opened its doors a year and a half ago but it already has a strong following in the Cronulla community. Owner, Chris Feros, is a passionate local who also owns a range of pubs and restaurants in the south of Sydney. He knows his stuff and his vision for Gerrale St Kitchen is for it to be a cafe by day and a restaurant by night; a place for everyone to sit, eat, laugh and enjoy the friendly atmosphere. This is also reflected in the staff who have been handpicked for their professionalism and friendly manner.
The vibe you get in this place is one of funky freshness. Greenery is everywhere from hanging plants to giant luxurious and large potted plants giving it a kind of tropical feel. The design of this place is simple and stylish consisting of a beautiful white palate with accents of black, topped off with modern and super-comfy wooden furniture.
Perfect for everyone from mums and bubs, ladies’ lunches, to high flying business meetings, Gerrale St Kitchen features a beautiful sunny indoor veranda that can be closed off (with rather stunning glass doors) for functions.
Food glorious food! The menu is pretty amazing here. An all day menu means you can have breakfast food at lunch or in the afternoon if you feel the need for some arvo eggs action. You can even try their delicious Chicken Schnitty for brekky. The All Day Menu also includes the most incredible Waffles you have ever eaten served with caramelised apples, salted walnuts (YUM) and cinnamon mascarpone. We tried this amazing dish and it was almost literally licked off the plate it was that good. We also tried one of their most popular dishes, the Zucchini and Corn Fritter. I’ve tasted some good fritters in my time but this was to DIE for! Crunchy, tasty and served with poached eggs – cooked to perfection – bacon, relish and avocado. I get why the locals love it so much. So good!
Health conscious? There are dishes for you too with the GSK Green Bowl and the Smashed Avocado. Who’s hungry? The kids are catered for as well with a load of delicious options and dessert – well, the hardest thing you’ll have to do all day is choose your dessert, they all sound super-delish!
One of the cool features of Gerrale St Kitchen is the coffee bar out the front so if you’re looking for a quick coffee on the way to work you can pick one up in no time at all. You don’t even have to go inside. The coffee is made with love – it looks and tastes amazing! We love seeing our coffee in action, served with such incredible food in such a beautiful setting.
So if you’re in the Cronulla area or up for a road trip, we highly recommend this place – it’s friendly, comfortable and has so much yumminess on offer, you’ll want to stay all day and perhaps into the night.
