Second Fiddle is an established business that has recently changed ownership.
The site itself is steeped in history and change having originated as a 'General Store' back as far as the 1940's. During the past years the site has evolved from Courner Store to Take Away and now a Cafe.
My interest in hospitality started as a small boy when I'd visit mum at work in town where she managed a restaurant. I believe this was the beginning of my desire to own my own Cafe. 40 years ago I dragged Mum all over Newcastle looking for the perfect Cafe but unfortunately we couldn't find what we really wanted. I've reached a stage in my life now that I could finally follow this dream and the hunt began again (unfortunately without Mum this time). I was overjoyed when I discovered this haven; it is the Cafe of my dreams.
All of our tasty delights are made and baked in house using only quality products such as free range eggs, fresh fruit and veg from local suppliers and sometimes vegetables and fruit from my home garden when in season. Our premium meats are locally sourced and our local farmers milk products provided by Norco- The Farmers Dairy network.
What makes us special is that all of our baked goods a made with love in our 'bakery' at the Cafe. My wife Bronwyn, myself and the staff all create a variety of treats which change regularly.
Our menu is availabe on this web site and boasts a range of nutritious savoury and sweet delights including Gluten Free options. Our handcrafted recipes feature not only our delicious beef rissoles and outstanding veggie patties, but we must also mention our unique Froothies!
Froothies are a Second Fiddle own creation, perfect for quenching your summer thirst. Jam packed with loads of fruits and veg plus the added hydration of pure coconut water- they are certain to provide your health boost for the day.
Our passionate team is small, but we make up for this with loads of love and a genuine appreciation for great food and coffee. Our brand of coffee is 'Belaroma' by Seven Miles and includes a 'single origin' option for dedicated coffee drinkers (usually served as Esspresso or Long-Black).
Come and visit us today and see for yourself and when you leave I'll say "I'll see you next time" because I know you'll come back.
