Oscar Cooper is the new café from pals Paul Butera and James Barone (The Collection Lounge, Maya Tequila), who have named the cosy corner joint after their respective dogs.
Slipping right into the Greville Street vibe, the open plan of this café includes plenty of custom-made wood fittings and large folding glass windows that make the most of Oscar Cooper’s corner location.
Oscar Cooper’s byline of Honest food. Quality booze. extends to their coffee, with Small Batch coffee on the grind, and their second grinder to be filled with a rotating list of other local small batch roasters.
The breakfast menu runs to 3pm and boasts all manner of eggs – scrambled, baked and poached, and some of the old breakfast faithfuls have all been tricked up. Banana bread comes with honey marscapone, mixed berry and orange compote and toasted macadamias ($10) while the Oscar’s Benedict consists of poached eggs on potato roesti, Berkshire bacon, avocado and hollandaise ($10).
The lunch menu includes Serrano jamon, a watermelon and feta salad right beside a Wagyu burger and a selection of sandwiches. A rotating selection of Damn Fine Jaffles also runs all day.
The fresh juices ($5) are all quirkily named, while those after a real drink are welcome to a selection of beers, ciders and reasonably-priced cocktails. Perhaps in a nod to the coming summer and their wide open windows, Oscar Cooper is offering jugs of Pimms for $30.
Oscar Cooper are getting their outdoor furniture sorted in the coming weeks, so there will be even more open space for you to hang out as you soak up the Greville Street sun.
