Saint James Cafe is the British-themed cousin of From on High, Hard Pressed, Small Print Pizza Bar, Pedro Espresso and Yorkshire Brewhouse.
The café is the realisation of British owners Craig Tate and Rich Donovan's dream and named after St. James' Park, the home of Tate and Donovan's favourite football club Newcastle United.
The airy and casual café delivers a delicious menu of English-inspired brunch fare alongside excellent coffee. While the English theme is not immediately obvious, the influence is certainly there, resulting in a very interesting and compelling brunch proposition.
The café's commitment to sustainability means that the food is made from raw ingredients, using every part. Organic waste is turned to compost - not landfill. We loved the use of seasonal and local with all free-range meat and eggs.
Our top pick from the current menu is the Chicken Tandoori mixed grain salad. Wonderfully cooked tender morsels of chicken are tossed with a beautiful amalgamation of red quinoa, haloumi, greens and finished with a delicious yoghurt dressing.
