The latest addition to Lonsdale Street in Braddon, Mood Food & Co, opened its doors yesterday. My friend and I arrived for dinner and were greeted warmly by our waiter and shown to a table. Tap water was immediately provided and poured into our glasses.
The indoor area is smallish inside with a huge long open kitchen. There are two big leather couches towards the front for those wanting a relaxed drink (though the liquor license hasn't yet come through). A fit out of industrial, with granite-like slab walls, wooden panelling and decor is used throughout. A stand out feature are the hanging rows of electric candles placed above normal height. I thought they were very unique and added a certain cosiness to the place, not to mention a good source of mood lighting. Perhaps to match their name?
I think prices for brunch are a little on the expensive side with the most expensive item being the 'Bulking Breakfast' at $25.
One thing to note is that all credit card and eftpos payments are charged with a 2% fee.
Located in the Mode 3 building, Mood Food & Co are open 7 days a week for breakfast and lunch. Dinner Wednesday to Saturday. All day breakfast on Sundays. There are plenty of tables outside too, great for summer.
