Situated at the end of King St, towards St Peters train station you will find the aptly named End of King cafe. Newly opened in the old site of Tram Stop Diner & El Cuervo Cantina, it has had an interior renovation which is what initially caught my eye to try this out for a weekend breakfast.
The beautiful glass windows allow so much natural light in to the cafe, making it a very open and friendly place to sit down over a coffee while selecting some of the delicious menu items.
The menu does have the usual breakfast staples, but it is here you start to notice a few little items or ingredients out of the norm. That comes down to the fact that Chef and owner Sal learned a thing or two about cooking from his mother and grandmother when he was growing up in Kathmandu, and it’s these techniques that show through to some of the dishes on his menu. Sal has been cooking in Sydney for 15 years, at one point business-partnering with his brother on Glebe Point Road.
The Smokestack ($16.9) had two beautifully fluffy corn fritters, with roasted balsamic vinegar roma tomatoes and a light avocado salsa. The fritters are served with hot cripsy bacon, but if you wanted a vegetarian option you can select the haloumi instead.
The End of King smashed avocado ($15.9) had a very healthy serve of avocado, haloumi with a beautifully poached egg delicately placed on top of a fresh slice of sourdough.
I really enjoyed eating at End of King, and know that I will return. The juices were fresh and tasty, all the produce was perfect and I am very excited to try a few more of the interesting menu choices over the coming weeks. It is nice to have a new local cafe on the block!
