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.

What’s On in Kedron Cafes for the Holiday Season

Here we list what’s cooking in cafes around town for this holiday season.

Farm House Kedron

The cafe, however, will be closed from the 25th to 26th of December and the 1st of January.

Farm House Kedron holds a special spot among residents of Kedron because it serves as a tribute to Farmer Joe’s which was closed in 2009 to pave way for a road construction. The closure of Farmer Joe’s has been sad as it was a community hub where local fresh produce were bought and sold. In the hopes to still support the local farmers in Kedron, Farm House sees to it that they remain to buy supplies from them. The cafe hopes that more and more local farmers will soon come to them. As for its customers, Farm House Kedron aims to take food from the farm to the plate.

Farm House Kedron is at 9, Somerset Road

Fuzzy Duck

Fuzzy Duck has just reinvented itself as a restaurant last November, held their soft launch on 7th of December, and is now getting ready for official re-opening in 2018. It may not have your regular fill of coffee for the holiday season, but the place’s specialty gift shop is filled with quirky items for gifts. It has been restocked with a variety of succulents and other potted plants.
