The Owl & Pussycat Cafe
Hillsborough is a beautiful to live in and great place to visit for a day out. This modern gastrocafe hasn’t been open for very long, but already has the name of a foodie destination. They serve a range of freshly prepared dishes across the day which showcase the best local artisan producers on their doorstep. They include the Ristretto coffee boys, Freebirds tea, Draynes Farm dairy products and ice-cream, Abernethy butter and Hannan Meats.
In the morning the bestseller is the Owl and Pussycat Breakfast with Hannan’s pork and leek sausages, ‘Scullery Made’ cocoa and chilli black pudding, maple-cured bacon, fried egg, signature homemade potato bread, roasted tomato and toasted Yellow Door soda bread.
At lunch the Piggywig sandwich always proves a hit. It is succulent pulled pork served on a Yellow Door buttermilk bap with Passion Preserved Sunshine Relish, beef tomato, rocket and a side of homemade slaw.
Evening times you could try a savoury Crepe of the Day, Freshly Battered Cod or the popular O and P Burger among others.
They make the nearly all of their yummy cakes and traybakes in-house as well as those sweet and savoury crepes. If you’re in be sure to try a Mixshake made with 2 scoops of Draynes ice cream & a chocolate bar of your choice!
Inside you’ll find a beautiful pea-green boat play area where the kids can amuse themselves while you work your way through the menu!
