After helping their customers get through lockdown by offering takeaways, Kedron cafe Nana & Da’s just opened its doors again for dine-in customers.
First opened in 2014, Nana & Da’s is a snug, charming cafe with a patio for homestyle fare, and baked goods, as well as smoothies, and espresso drinks. Locals would come here for their hash benedict and breakfast gnocchi –gnocchi with pesto cream, zucchini, bacon, parmesan, and poached egg.
If you’re wondering where the name came from, it was after the grandparents who used to run the bakery. In the 1930’s, owner Jackie Wise’s grandparents ran a bakeshop called Nana & Da’s Bakery which became a community space and local store later on. It went back to its roots seven years ago when Ms Wise decided to open her own bakery.
Now, the 100-year-old timber cottage remains open throughout the pandemic, still delighting locals with their heavenly choc-chip cookies, muffins, homemade jams, and the classic banana bread and lemon yoghurt cakes. For drinks, flat whites and cappuccinos smoothies, fresh juices, and milkshakes are on offer. They can also provide alternative milks for those who have special dietary requests.
Nana & Da’s interior looks a lot more like a home than a typical cafe. The bright and floral wallpaper adds a vintage charm to the place, with its cross-back timber chairs and dark wood cabinet.
“The coffee is always consistently awesome, the staff are super friendly and the food amazing! A cosy and inviting place! Welcome to your new home from home,” shared one local.
Whilst dine-in is still allowed, seats will be limited to adhere to health and safety protocols. Those who still wish to enjoy Nana & Da’s goodies can preorder a takeaway from 7:00 a.m. to 12:00 p.m. seven days a week.
