Three Williams

Walking into this unassuming space on the fringes of Redfern is like stepping into a bank or church. Sparse, with wooden furniture, brick walls and a post-apocalyptic tree branch above the counter. But look closer and you’ll find a certain charm in what I find out is an ex-furniture warehouse. Most obvious of all is the well-crafted new Spring menu. Green smoothies, bright pink sodas, and salads peppered with the season’s freshest ingredients. The Super Smoothie ($8) is ‘Spring in a bottle’ with kale, apricot, apple, almond, banana, ginger and cinnamon. And the Organic Tofu Salad ($15) with charred broccolini, almonds, Japanese seaweed and peas is so healthy you practically grow muscles upon consumption – Popeye-style! Don’t want to work on your physique? That’s okay, the Chicken Schnitzel Burger ($15) has your back – crispy and delicious with wasabi and avocado mayo. Or there’s the Brioche French Toast ($16) – making your French toast attempts look pathetic, with caramel bananas, hazelnuts and Belgian chocolate. A textural masterpiece, it’s so devastatingly good it should come with a warning. Of course, the signature Three Williams item has to be the Wagyu Beef Brisket Narnie ($15) – soft beef and creamy ‘slaw between fistfuls of naan bread. You’ll be left wondering why every other Sydney café hasn’t followed suit.
