PS. Cafe’s latest venture is housed in the space formerly occupied by White Canvas Gallery and while the décor’s pretty much identical to the rest of their other restaurants, the concept’s a little different.
It’s a takeaway pizza bar, with a compact menu of just nine pizza offerings (from $21) and one lonesome but yummy The Super Food Salad ($9.80), with blueberries, whole roasted almonds, wolfberries, broc, oven-baked pumpkin, spinach, crisp slivers of garlic and quinoa served alongside an orange-rosemary dressing. While they don’t go out of their way to encourage people to eat in, there are some counter seats and a few tables if you insist on having your pie there (12 seats in total), but bear in mind you’ll have to rough it (be prepared to eat out of the box).
There are meat-heavy pizzas including winter salami Margherita with mozz, cheddar and scamoza cheese ($28) and Kurobuta pork-fennel sausage with roasted red peppers ($26) to choose from, as well as vegetarian-friendly options like bianca funghi, a white pizza topped with grilled king oyster, portobello and button mushrooms drizzled with white truffle oil ($26) and one for the die-hards, Green Goddess ($24), with green peppers, sugar snaps, spinach, broccoli, peas, mozzarella, chèvre and pesto.
They also offer bakes such as blueberry sour cream and apple crumble muffins (both $6.50), plus close to 80 bottles of wine (from $30) that you can grab and go. There’s a healthy selection of Aussie labels including Stella Bella (from $45) and John Duval Plexus Shiraz Grenache Mourvedre ($76), and even bubbly like vintage Dom ($250) and Krug ($290).
It’s more than just dough and cheese at these gourmet pizza joints: expect lovingly hand-crafted pizzas with an imaginative array of toppings and perfectly blistered crust. Check out our top 10 pizza places.
