Duchess of Spotswood is a gourmet cafe which sources high quality produce and delivers it on the plate in an aesthetically pleasing manner. The flavours are simple yet have a gourmet, modern feel to them. At this cafe – you dont get your usual breakfast dishes of eggs and tomato with a side of avocado for example, you get a variety. Duchess of Spotswood chef Andrew Gale states “People are expecting more and more when they go out for breakfast,” and this why the Duchess of Spotswood menu is the way it is – it is not your normal breakfast menu (http://www.duchessofspotswood.com.au/themenu.php).
Duchess of Spotswood also offers Lunch and Dinner (on Thursday to Saturday evenings) – which consists of a 3 course menu for $55. I definitely want to go back and try out the dinner degustation menu. When you visit their website you can see pictures of the dishes – which is enough to make you want to make the trip over the West Gate bridge to Spotswood no matter where in Melbourne you live.
