With a name as friendly as Teddy Picker’s and a menu equally as inviting, there is no good reason not to make Teddy Picker’s a regular café haunt.
Run by a team of young and enthusiastic individuals, the café is an eclectic mix of what they love. They greet patrons with light-hearted familiarity, and often to a soundtrack of Arctic Monkey’s playing on the record player upstairs.
Exposed concrete and lofty ceilings give the space an industrial feel that the team have made it their own with quirks of decorative hanging plants, a large floating bookshelf filled with kitsch items and awkward family photos. A loft lounge room and spacious dining area with floor-to-ceiling windows define the space as light, airy and comfortable, with a view onto the seated terrace and dog patrons that hang out at the dog bar.
The food that Teddy Picker’s has to offer demonstrates the team’s passion and knowledge for flavour through creative twists that speak to their fun-loving personalities. Don’t miss the Pressed French Toast, with its custardy flavour and silky texture paired with summery stone fruit, a scoop of honey ice cream and milk crumb. Or the Eggs Benedict, encompassing layers of chunky Christmas ham, poached eggs and smoked hollandaise on soft rye which will redefine your benny standards.
An assortment of preserves, pickles and other small goods created by the Teddy Picker’s team are on offer to purchase. A community minded bunch, the chefs are passionate about involving customers and encouraging backyard produce and want people to bring in their surplus garden bounty for them to work their magic on and create pickles and preserves for everyone to enjoy.
