Eager to get away from the hustle and bustle of city life and unwind at a vintage coffee lounge and bar? Red Bowler in West End offers a moment of reprieve coupled with breakfast meals and delicious beverages.
Red Bowler, a coffee lounge and wine bar located along West End’s Duncan St, offers its customers a curated selection of teas with options such as English Breakfast, Earl Grey, Peppermint, and Lemongrass and Ginger — all priced at $4.60. Kombucha, sparkling water, and fruit juice is also available for order.
Available in their coffee menu are classic brews such as cappuccinos, espressos, chai lattes, mochaccinos, and many others. Customers can also indulge themselves with some chocolate, iced or hot, as well as iced lattes and long blacks.
Last but not least, Red Bowler offers a variety of wines and beers which are complemented by the restaurant’s rustic ambience. With a mix of retro and antique furniture dimly lit by lamplight, the lounge serves as an excellent retreat from the bright and busy atmosphere outside its walls.
All of these beverages can be partnered with an assortment of snacks. Roasted nuts, marinated olives, fresh bread and butter, as well as dip are all available to order to complement drinks. Meals good for two are also sold exclusively on weekends.
Their breakfast plate, dubbed Day Break, is only available on Saturdays and Sundays. The dish consists of avocado mash, preserved lemon, smoked butter and lemon oil with artichoke, tomatoes and capsicum relish topped off by a choice of either salmon or ham, two small bowls of yoghurt, and a freshly toasted sourdough bagel.
Reviewers raved over the lounge’s ambience in particular, commenting that it was “chilled”, “fabulous”, or simply “beautiful. The coffee also comes highly recommended, and customers have lauded Red Bowler for its excellent service as well.
