Away from the hustle and bustle of Oxford Street is one of our finest hidden gems where you can enjoy fresh food cooked on-site by French chefs ranging from the crispest calamari to mouth watering fruit pastries and croissant.
Andana and Co on Riding Road, close to Sts Peter and Paul's School, is owned and run by Stephen and Tina and their warmth and friendliness is evident from the moment you step through the door, The cafe has a distinctly European flavour with plenty of outdoor seating and gorgeous pot plants framing the eaterie.
Head Chef Sebastien Legendre has created a Summer Menu to appeal to all the family whether it's for breakfast, brunch, morning tea or a belly busting lunch. In fact, he even has busy families covered in the evening with a well-stocked freezer full of ready-made pies, lasagne and spanakopita ready to be popped into the oven at home.
Sebastien is ably assisted by Chef Geoffrey Cenatiempo so expect to hear a constant stream of French emananting from the kitchen as they produce each meal cooked to order.
The team is passionate about their food and their pride is obvious in the panache with which each plate is presented. Such care and attention is put into creating authentic food which is as visual as it is delicious.
The new Summer menu has all the family favourites you would expect plus a few surprises such as truffle chips and home made fizzies including strawberry and basil, gingerbread and orange and old skool lemonade.
Look out for some seasonal specials including roast ham and plenty of gingerbread over the holidays as well as some fun workshops to keep the kids busy these school holidays.
Whether it's a quick coffee and catch up you are after or a long lunch, Andana and Co have got you covered with a wide menu and artisan cakes that will keep you coming back daily to see what Sebastien and Geoffrey have come up with next!
