Dutch Smuggler is hidden in an architectural feature down some stairs and behind an office block. It small-batch roasts his own A-grade beans with Sovereign Coffee Roasters, and mixes things up with cold-brew-coffee mocktails such as the C&T with tonic, and the Roots in Coffee with ginger beer and lemon.
The jaffles use camp-style recipes but with luxe ingredients. There are five, some sweet like the Nutella-banana, and others cheesier, such as the toasted Reuben and the mushroom and truffle. Each week Dutch Smuggler introduces a more playful option; past versions have been stuffed with mee goreng, mac’n’cheese and cheesy kimchi.
There’s also a stellar bacon-and-egg roll with chipotle aioli; muesli; regular toast using Berkelo bread; and nachos.
At night it’s beers, house wines and cocktails on tap – try a gin and cold brew Old Fashioned and some surprisingly frothy Espresso Martinis.
