PROFILE BY BEST RESTAURANTS
Like any good country kitchen, Provisions has a rustic charm that is at once warm and inviting. Freshly baked muffins, biscuits and cakes are displayed on the counter and you can smell the kitchen as soon as you push open the front door. In this double-fronted cafe on busy Ferguson Street, Provisions has long been satisfying locals who flock to sit canteen-style in its large dining room. The open kitchen is the heart of the house and the noise and bustle is just part of the experience.
No matter what time of day you arrive, you will find something to tempt you on this menu. Breakfast is available until 3pm and is the perfect excuse to indulge in some good comfort cooking. Oat pancakes with maple syrup are a popular choice as are the eggs deluxe with braised mushrooms. You will find dishes such as Georgian beef and mushroom stew with root vegetable mash and cashew sweet potato and tempeh cakes on the specials menu. For the kids, order baked beans on toast or pasta. There are kiddie biscuits, dog biscuits and grown-up home made cakes and biscuits, like chocolate date and almond meringue and yo yos (the stuff of local legend). Provisions also run an award winning catering business.
