Mojo St James

Mojo have added another cafe to their enterprise, not dissimilar to Poneke, with food created by Martin Bosley and steampunk and cold brew coffees featured. The decor is light, bright and airy, and a nice fit with the theatre foyer.

Additional to dishes you will recognise from Poneke (yes the fab super grain salad is here too), is a section of ‘on bread’ gourmet sandwiches made to order and served nicely on wooden boards if eating in, or packable for takeaway. These range from $9 to $16, include some interesting ingredients, and can also be provided on Paleo Pantry gluten free bread if desired.

Pictured below is the smoked fish, beet caviar, caper and lemon on wholemeal, which was tasty with quality smoked fish. My recommendation is to eat in to get the full experience.

And I couldn’t go past my favourite Greek yoghurt mousse, thyme honey, poached figs and granola crumble either (yep more than just my mouth doing the dining!)…

Mojo SJ are also in the process of applying for their liquor licence and intend to open for pre-show dinners and possibly post-show nibbles in the near future (currently 7 days until 4/5pm, but later openings from 26 February to 20 March for the Arts Festival). I imagine enjoying casual but quality food and drink here will do nothing but add to the pleasure of an evening at the theatre.
