High ceilings, industrial walls and floors with great big pipes decorating the ceiling overhead immediately give this space an arty feel. Large art pieces which are for sale cover the walls and a single bright green plant ads a punch of colour to the neutral coloured space. Scattered with high top tables and one long table, the Lunchbox can be eat-in or take-it-to-go.
The team at Lunchbox (formerly known as Epic Bites Café) use a technique called sous vide to cook their meats. The technique is designed to eliminate waste, maximize taste and uses air tight plastic bags placed in hot water to slow cook. The technique was first discovered in the 1970s by a French Chef and was adopted by the Lunchbox because of its no-fail cooking method which produces tender, tasty meats which still have their nutrition in tact after being cooked.
Hot or cold
Paninis, sandwiches, soups, salads and daily specials (like freshly made Thai curry and the now daily butter chicken) are what’s for lunch. Some of the favourites include the turkey on cranberry loaf sandwich, the bocconcini and pesto aioli panini and hot veggie chilli. To drink, there are fruit smoothies, a variety of fancy coffees and cool drinks, including lemonade.
