Why We Do What We Do
Hippcrates once said “Let food be thy medicine and let medicine be thy food”.
Our mission to create a place that nurtures. While our dishes are simple and made from whole ingredients they each have their own amazing characteristics. So did you know these interesting fun facts…..
Cacao powder is made from cacao seeds (also know as beans). This is fermented and ground into a paste where it can be sweetened. Unlike COCOA, Cacao is less processed and therefore unsweetened (or more like its original state).
The Cacao we use at Wattle is French, so it has a bitter taste, leaving our guests the option to add sweetener. Our Cacao is also Vegan.

Farm to Cup
We have partnered with an icon of the Australian coffee industry who has gone on to create Brooklyn based Abbotsford Road. Such is their pride in coffee that they source our beans direct from the farmers. Come in and ask us about where your beans came from.
Yes we have many gluten free options including breads and waffles.
Have that covered too even in our waffle selection. Also let us know and we can amend menu items to create a vegan dish for you.
