Now let me say this – either Kings Cross is becoming a little bit Woollahra or Byron Woolfrey (the man behind Chez Dee) is very brave but whatever the reason this place is done very well. And it really should be as Byron has worked for Merivale on Ms G’s and their latest - The Fish Shop in Challis Ave in Potts Point, so he comes with success and credibility.
Chez Dee is open for breakfast, lunch and dinner. For breakfast, you can order fresh fruit or vegetable juices – I ordered a carrot juice, there also things like fruit, muesli, yoghurt also eggs and pastries. For lunch, stuffed red peppers, chick pea salad and moussaka – a wonderful selection, but I went for the baked eggs with shaved black truffle on top. It was one of the best baked eggs I think I’ve ever had – the coffee was great as well. They use Gypsy single origin – the food is interesting and very good.
A glass of wine is about $8 and a cheese plate with french cheeses $20 – great for a stop off after work.
You can also buy fresh fruit and vegetables, pasta, oils, jams, condiments and interesting selection of homewares – (if all a bit Southern Highlands – not that there is anything wrong with that we all say loudly).
Having said this, it’s great to see Chez Dee in Kellett St, Kings Cross – not the sort of place you’d expect to see in Kellett St of recent times. Although in the late 80’s /early 90’s, Kellett St was as cool as a pole dancer’s patent red platform shoes and a barbie wig, oops – sorry again! It’s great to see a cool new Sydney cafe/bar and grocer in Kings Cross, We will be here often I think.
