Two things seem to be guaranteed at Elizabeth Café and Larder; firstly, the floor to ceiling windows will be streaming sunlight into the generously airy, open-plan seating area, and secondly, this seating area will be packed with happily chatting customers dining on their freshly prepared meals. The clientele is a comfortable mix of young professionals and casual diners starting the day with a plate of huevos rancheros or treating themselves to eggs on rye with gravlax salmon. The evening menu is a finely honed selection of hearty modern fusion that allows for a calmer post-work atmosphere, with just four small plates and five large plates to pick from. Those with an appetite are treated to char-grilled Angus Scotch fillet or five point smoked lamb rack.
