The first sign that you are in for a treat at Punch and Daisy, who specialise in coffee, breakfast and lunch, is the mouthwatering smells that greet you on arrival. The fragrance of freshly picked garden herbs and charred organic sourdough, and the aroma of brewed Moonshine Coffee, fill the air.
Dania Kamile says that the varied menu is popular with diners. ‘Classic breakfast items like the Poached Eggs Salsa Verde and the Bacon and Egg Croissant continue to bring smiles and contentment’, she says.
‘Lunch items include the Swimmer Crab and Fish Cakes which are more deserving of reverence. The wild-caught crabs and locally line-caught fish are mixed together with Japanese breadcrumbs, and customers tell me the added excitement of a crispy start and smooth finish keep them coming back for more.
‘For something on the lighter side, our vegan king oyster mushroom tacos have proven by their popularity amongst our diners that a meal without meat is just as deliciously satisfying.
‘Inspired by the culture and spirit of Mullumbimby and the Northern Rivers, we are continuously evolving in the way we cook, create, and connect with our community, customers and of course our farmers, who are the ones who dictate the quality of the food’, she says.
If you can’t get yourself in for breakfast or lunch, they are now open on Monday nights from 5 till 8 pm, which is a gentle way to ease into the week. They are fully licensed, and will be pouring craft beers and locally made wine by Jared Dixon. The Monday night POP UP menu will change, so keep an eye and ear out for what is to come. ‘Whether you make it in for breakfast, lunch or dinner, we hope to see you in soon’, says Dania.
