Billykart Kitchen


An old general store in a quiet suburban crescent in Annerley has new life as buzzy celebrity chef-owned café Billy Kart Kitchen

Inside Billy Kart Kitchen Annerley

 Billy Kart Kitchen has rolled into Annerley, with celebrity chef Ben O'Donoghue (Surfing the Menu) and his wife Dee at the helm. Housed in a former corner store - the Clifton Hill Store sign hangs above the vertical garden in the rear - Billy Kart is open for breakfast and lunch seven days a week; with dinner and drinks available on Friday nights.

Behind the lime green roller doors, the bright and breezy space offers plenty of seating including a communal bench beside the open kitchen; with wooden floorboards in the front half of the cafe and striking stencilled leaf floor in the back half, while accents of teal, lemon and lime add some zest.

Inspired by seasons and produce available, Billy Kart’s menu will change continually.  One thing that will remain constant is the coffee with well-brewed cups of Campos being served, complemented with a selection of home-made sweet treats; many gluten-free like the amazingly moist chocolate nut brownie.

And keeping the corner store tradition alive, locals can pick up a paper, milk and loaf of fresh Banneton bread.
