Short Straw has just launched a new menu under the hands of new Head Chef Jose Chavez.

Chavez has taking the new menu by storm – putting a fine dining twist on café food. Chavez was mentored by Jacques Reymond & Shane Delia and has been in the food scene for over 8 years – so we were excited to see what he had in store for us!


Chaves is influenced by his Salvador background, where sharing and eating together as a family is the way of life. This shines through the menu with dishes such as the Coconut Kasoundi Beaked Beans with minted yogurt, poached eggs with crispy soldiers & Baked Mushrooms in garlic & thyme roasted herbs, hazelnut crumb, whipped goats cheese & parmesan served with toast.


Under its new owner, Short Straw is serving Under Cover Roaster Coffee and is focused on ensuring staff become family, so you are assured they remember your coffee order when you visit a few times!
