Young Cafe de Jour
The emphasis is on relaxing at this laid-back restaurant, with couches and plants scattered among the tables in the huge, light-drenched, high-ceilinged dining room. Any formality is focused on the food, with modern Australian favourites on the menu including twice-cooked duck served with honey sherried peppers and gooseberry glaze. You may want to curl up on a couch after your meal with a cup of coffee, and at Young Cafe they encourage you to do just that.
