The Butchers Cafe, Fairlight

“Let’s go to the butchers’ for a coffee” has become a running joke in Fairlight, says Andrew Dawes, owner of The Butchers Cafe. The petite cafe used to be a deli called Fairlight Gourmet Deli with a butcher shop attached, but after a while the food and coffee took over. So Andrew sold the butcher shop (which is still accessible through the cafe to this day) to concentrate solely on the cafe.

The cafe pumps through countless Allpress Supremo coffees every day. Handwritten on a board are the coffee notes of the Supremo blend: “This is a sweet, bold coffee with a taste of red berries and cocoa”.

Unsurprisingly, the food at The Butchers Cafe is meat-centric. It was originally all about utilising the meat from the butcher, but even after Andrew sold the butcher shop, the carnivorous menu stuck. As such, The Butchers Cafe isn’t a vegetarian-friendly establishment. There’s in fact no vegetarian dish on the menu at all – except toast or muesli.

Whether it’s lamb leg, pork loin, chicken burgers or bacon & egg rolls, The Butchers Cafe has got something for every meat-lover. There are even meat muffins made with bacon, cheese and onion. Yum.

A burger of epic proportions with hearty, delicious flavours is a signature dish at The Butchers Cafe. The wagyu beef burger is served on a Brasserie Bread burger bun with lettuce, tomato, bacon, provolone, beetroot relish and caramelised onion.

The steak sandwich is also a winner. Cape Grim scotch fillet is perfectly balanced with Brasserie Bread’s schiacciata, dijon, rocket and caramelised onions. Toasties on Brasserie Bread schiacciata are also on display in the cabinet. Let there be meat!
