Cawa Coffee launches a new cocktail and tapas menu
What better way to quell the midweek blues than with a bit of jazz? Cawa Coffee are saving our Thursday nights with their live music lounge so you can enjoy the soothing melodies from the comfort of your favourite coffee house.
Cawa have recently launched their new tapas menu which features a range of Mediterranean-inspired bruschettas with toppings like tomato, mozzarella, basil and pesto, olive tapenade, pickled onion and thyme and smoked salmon, cream cheese, mint and dill – all served on organic homemade bread.
To sweeten things up, try their pear with Little Mesters cheese, walnuts and honey. All of this is available Thursday-Saturday and they’re made with locally produced ingredients – perfect for sharing with friends, or just to enjoy by yourself while you wind down for the evening.
If you’re not in the mood for food, new co-owners and siblings Fraser and Robyn Hodges curated a new cocktails and spirit selection for the weekend. Sip on an old fashioned, Negronis, fruity Singapore slings and you can’t beat a classic espresso martini.
‘Cawa’ is the original word for coffee in Turkish/Arabic. Today, it’s a loose term referring to a place to enjoy a hot drink, great food, and socialise. They make their own bread and pastries in-house and their cronuts and cruffins are an absolute must. For something a bit more substantial, indulge in their sandwiches, paninis and soups and wash it down with their bespoke blended teas from Birdhouse Tea Company.
Galyna Key is the brains behind all this and you can tell she really cares about her customers as she knows a lot of them on a first-name basis and sits down with them to chit chat. She is a big advocate of supporting local businesses, so much so that they also sell a range of soaps and skincare products using natural ingredients!
“We are passionate about real food made with real ingredients. We only do fresh. Cawa is a place for people to come to and nurture themselves with great coffee, delicious food, inspirational music, and socialisation.”
