At Pakington Pantry we strive to produce extraordinary food in a casual restaurant environment. We use local, fresh, high quality produce as much as possible to create our dishes and our menu is always changing. Although, it is important that we keep the favourites available throughout the year.
Hidden away a little out of town this place is awesome. Although busy the staff were attentive and friendly. Coffee was good. What makes this place awesome is the food. I had the omelette. Most people think an omelette is simple and easy but more often than not they are served dry and tasteless. This omelette was memorable. Perfectly cooked and folded with chunks of Serrano ham, charred capsicum, blistered tomatoes and perfect sourdough toast. All with homemade relish on the side. Will definitely be back to try the rest of the menu.
This is an absolute fantastic breakfast venue. I am a huge eggs benedict fan but I was easily swayed by this delicious menu. I had the smashed avocado with dukah, pomegranate and goats cheese. Never would have thought to combine those flavours but was fantastic and fresh. The freshly squeezed juice combinations was also fantastic. And just like mentioned in the other reviews great coffee. The only reason it was not a five for me was that the seating arrangement made it feel a little cramped but I suppose that's what to expect in popular cafes. I will be back to this one, for sure.
Came here for lunch today with my friend. I ordered the super food breakfast salad dish. It was very nice but I found the vinaigrette was a bit strong. Perhaps having it in a separate dish to pour over the top might help.
The food was average pricing, smaller serving but great quality. The ambience was the most attractive part of Pakington Pantry. It was busy and inviting, and a table was cleared for us very quickly. I found there wasn't many options for vegetarians on the lunch menu, luckily you have all day breakfast.
Overall it was a lovely place to spend lunch and I would definitely come back again.
A great cafe to check out when in Geelong and seems like a popular place.
The coffees are strong and very nice. The food is amazing & well presented. I had the apple porridge which was filling and delicious. While my parents had the banana bread which was accompanied by blueberries, grilled banana & mascarpone which they enjoyed. Then my brother had the big breakfast which had many sides with poached eggs.
Would love to come back to this cafe to check out some of the other dishes
It's really nice when your biggest problem ordering is that you like the sound of too many of the dishes on offer. This is what happened when we visited this tiny little gem on packo. The service was excellent, despite them being completely full with people waiting for tables (book ahead). We received our coffees quickly, got tips on what to order when we struggled to choose, and had the best chilli eggs I've tasted. Food was way above par and coffee equally impressive. I'm not saying it lightly, this is now one of my top two favourite breakfast places in Geelong. I'm going back at the first opportunity. Probably not that child friendly in terms of manoeuvring prams, and general business but older kids, couples, friends and business people will find this place perfect.
