Three Williams, Redfern

Be prepared for a big post (of pictures)! I don’t usually order this much but with a group of 7, can’t help but order [almost] everything on the menu and have a mouthful of each!


Fish croquettes with lemon and aoli (on the house! Normally $3.00 each)


Peanut and caramel shake ($6.00)
Raspberry smoothie ($7.00)


Pork narnie  – bibimbap pulled pork, chili kimchi, bean sprouts, julienne carrots ($15.00)


The merchant: chili fried egg, crispy bacon, pickled slaw, ranch dressing on a warm brioche bun ($13.00)

Caremalised cauliflower tabouli with quinoa, walnuts and preserved lemon (gf) with chicken ($16.00)


Piccolo latte (on the house!)


Mocha (on the house!)

The Food Zoo experience: LOVE LOVE LOVE this place! Had to go back to this place two weeks in a row with my entire family in tow. For a table of 7 we waited for over an hour and I was getting terribly grumpy! But the staff were lovely and served us complimentary fish croquettes and coffees for waiting and a free pastry for my Grandma (thanks Glen)! The coffee was good, peanut and caramel shake packed a punch (too bad there weren’t more flavours) and the raspberry smoothie was super thick and full of berry pulp with each sip (not sure if I used the term pulp properly…) Also the kitchen does a great job in serving the food super fast (we were in and out within 45 minutes) without compromising on quality. Don’t really have a favourite as I liked all their narnies (house-made flat bread) and the french toast was divine!

I’m glad they have finally made use of the ‘incinerator’ in my neighbourhood (really just an abandoned tin shed which I hadn’t even noticed for most of my childhood). The place is always packed and bustling whether it be a 9AM early coffee or a leisurely late lunch at 2PM! Make sure you check out the photos on the website – what they have done with this place is absolutely amazing!


Cappuccino ($3.80)


Mocha (Can’t remember…. Around $4.00?)


Incinerator Sandwich: peppered scotch fillet, cheddar, dijon and pickles ($15.00)


Pulled pork brioche bun, pineapple chutney, spring onions, crackle ($18.00)


Hand cut chips, rosemary sale ($9.00)

 The Food Zoo experience: The pulled pork brioche bun was my favourite and I have been back weekly if not twice a week for the coffee. The beef sandwich was served with what seemed like Smith’s potato chips from the packet which was so random. Overall, good relaxed venue for any occasion. The food is a little expensive but it’s nice that I don’t have to trek to Surry Hills and the likes for some consistently delicious coffee! And a tip from me; be wary of the nightmarish Saturday netball traffic during Winter!
