The General Eatery and Supplies
Dulwich Hill’s main drag has a schmick café, takeaway shop and mini-larder.
WHEN YOU SEE ‘passion pop’ as one of the first things on a brunch menu, you may take a brief mental detour back to your days of chugging the purplelabelled, fizzy goon. But here at the General Eatery and Supplies – a dainty Dulwich Hill café – passion pop is their delicious housemade soda that you’ll sip through an environmentally sound steel straw. Another nostalgic sweet treat on the menu is the chocolate peanut-butter milkshake, which tastes like a frothy Snickers. You’ll also find breakfast favourites like avocado on toast, granola and eggs-your-way alongside a bunch of burgers. Vegan ops include mushies on toast: a thick-cut slice of Bread and Butter Project rye batard comes slathered in celeriac purée, which adds a creaminess where non-vegans would usually miss butter. Swiss brown mushrooms are cooked so they are still juicy but not soggy, while whole cloves of roast garlic add richness. It’s an awesome meat-free breakfast. We were excited to see the corn fritter burger on the menu: a bacon-andegg-roll-meets-fritter baby. The bacon is crisp and the avo plentiful, but the fritter could do with a bit more time in the fryer to ensure it’s cooked right through. Make sure you round your morning out with a slice of carrot loaf. A threecentimetre thick slice of nut-studded, super-moist cake comes topped with a wodge of melted maple butter. It goes down damn well with a coffee, which is made from Single O beans. Once you’ve finished your brekky it’s worth having a peek at the ‘supplies’ side of the café, where you’ll find cute ceramics, free-range eggs and housemade barbecue and hot sauces.
