Bunch of retired cardiac nurses wanting a heart - healthy spot with ambience for lunch. We found it here.
I had the soba noodle and salmon bowl (forgotten its name) which was a delicious cold Japanese bowl of goodness: raw salmon, noodles, carrot, cucumber, fresh soy beans, nori, fancy mushrooms, crunchy greens... with a pot of light soy sauce. Perfect on a hot day. The vegans had falafel with Mediterramean salad and flatbread. There were meaty options on the menu but most of us went vego. Pled thru of vegan and gluten-free options.
Service was quick; it's the order-and-pay-at-the-counter system which is perfect for groups. Drinks: all sorts of herbal teas, ordinary tea, great coffee, and an excellent range of healthy fresh juices/slushies/cool drinks. Breakfast looks good... must come back and try it.
Lovely setting on the Kingston foreshore.

I won’t lie - I was not excited when the brunch wife chose Local Press for our next adventure. I had heard good things, but the menu didn’t enthuse me. But I was wrong. So wrong. Firstly, my icy pineapple and mint drink was perfect for the hot morning (although I wouldn’t mind trying it again in the afternoon with a little gin...) Secondly, my eggs were almost perfect. The kale was nice, the goats cheese delicious... and I think I might be a smoked salmon convert now.

Brunch wife ordered the waffles. They’re certainly pretty, but she was only moderately pleased with them, and her cherry ripe smoothie tasted mostly of banana.

Overall I enjoyed it very much. I also hadn’t been down to the foreshore in a while, and I saw lots of stuff that I’ve added to the brunch list!

We had to wait for a table and a little for our food to arrive, but gosh it was so worth the wait- we had the indian savoury pancake and the waffle and it was fantastic - fresh and bursting with flavours. The servings are also very large. Would have preferred table service but it doesn’t matter for such amazing food!

This cafe is right on the water in Kingston which makes for a lovely view. There is the option to sit indoors or outdoors.

The menu is small, but also has vegan and vegetarian options. I had the pancakes which are vegan and my partner had mushrooms on sour dough. However the menu changes often and I think these options are no longer available. The pancakes were absolutely delicious and the best I have had. I would be eager to try more from the menu.

The breakfast is fantastic. The best mushrooms I have tasted for a while. Unique offerings and not your traditional brekkie.
