Dovetail On Overend
Overlooking Overend and Dickens Streets in Norman Park, is Dovetail on Overend, a charming coffee nook and cafe that is a local fave.
Sitting on a sunny, suburban corner, this hole in the wall cafe - with recycled, custom-built timber tables filling the footpath - is owned by former cafe reviewer, Adam Thomson, who knows a thing or two about coffee. The coffee at Dovetail is divine, on beans roasted locally by Uncle Joe’s. Tea drinkers are wll looked after too with a decent rainge of loose leaf Tea Masters flavours available.
Also worth a try are the Epic Milkshakes in flavours including blueberry, avocado, Oreo Chocolate, Nutella Chocolate, Maltesers or Crunchie bar.
Breakfast here is a treat -look out for the House Signature Dovetail Supreme -baked eggs (2 free range eggs with beef chili con carne, grilled eggplant, caramelised onion, capsicum and Witches Chase goast cheese) with caponata siciliana and toasted sourdough. Or try the Bangalow Babe (thich cut toasted sourdough sandwich with Bangalow ham, gruyere cheese and tarragon mustard) or Macadamia Muesli.
Customers can also choose from sweet and savoury treats such as salted caramel brownies, peanut butter slice, brandied fruit loaf with fig and nuts, with buter and war banana bread. And, from Wednesday to Saturday, a selection of Nodo Donuts are available.
