THE SCENE Tucked just out of sight from Parsons Green, this little Aussie cafe is a chilled-out spot for breakfast or lunch on a weekday off, or a lazy all-day brunch at the weekend.

The black-and-white walls are covered with modern art – shoes, ladies in hats and fish made from recycled materials such as pens and keys. The comfortable atmosphere attracts all ages in search of a quiet coffee and a catch-up. Look out for Aussie events here, too.

THE GRUB: The dishes are simple Aussie and English favourites – from Cumberland sausage and mash to corn fritters. The marinated kangaroo skewers are rare and gamey, softened with a mountain of aubergine pieces, then dashed with a spicy hit of chilli and brought back to earth with a mint salad and a cooling yoghurt dressing.

My friend samples the corn fritters with smoked bacon and hash browns, accompanied by smashed avocado, tomato and chilli jam – a satisfying brunchtime hit. Almost full, thanks to the hearty portions, we share one slice of the ultra-gooey carrot cake. This is lucky, as it came out doorstop-sized and slathered in sticky, sugary icing.

BEHIND THE BAR: A selection of wines – half Australian, half European – are available, plus some Aussie and Kiwi beers like James Boags, Montieths and Little Creatures But as Barossa is only open during the day, the focus is on tea and coffee – flat whites are an obvious choice but the fresh mint teas are also tasty and warming.

BILL PLEASE:  Mains from £8; salads from £7; sandwiches from £6; brunch or breakfast from £3; a glass of wine from £6; and coffee from £2.50.

VERDICT: A good local cafe for refuelling at lunchtime or a cosy haven for whiling away the weekend with the Sunday papers. The food is also nice and cheap compared to its neighbours and the atmosphere is friendly and relaxed. But just one word to the wise: come to Barossa with a healthy appetite, or you will lose.
