Compact café and takeaway in Cessnock dishing up delightful Asian-inspired savouries and delectable cakes.
For ten years, Cherry and Heather have been providing their enticing range of fresh, inventive and affordable food to an appreciative Cessnock crowd – who are somewhat starved of café options of this quality. The menu bristles with Asian dishes, super soups, deli pasta dishes, gourmet sandwiches – such as the signature meatballs with Indonesian peanut sauce – and lots of sweet treats including gluten-free options. The small dining space with four tables manages to be a bright, comfortable spot for enjoying the high-standard food on offer, plus there's good coffee and a great selection of teas available as well. A splendid spot in a neighbourhood scarce on cafés, whether for takeaway, relaxing or working – and worth seeking out if you are in touching or trekking distance.
