I heard about The Knox opening on Instagram and stopped by to check it out after visiting the Capital Regional Farmer’s Market on a Saturday morning. On arrival I went to photograph their sign and a lady seated nearby started chatting with me – turns out she’s responsible for the beautiful pots of herbs and veggies dotted around the courtyard! The vibe here is casual and comfortable, with fun, modern decor and a kid-friendly space. We only had stomach space for a snack, but the brunch mains looked fabulous! I ordered a muesli bar ($2.50) from the display cabinet and a watermelon, orange, apple and kiwi fruit juice ($7), and Dad picked the Portuguese tart ($3). Impressively, all the bakery items are made in house. The juice arrived first in a large milk bottle – there had to be at least 500ml of juice in there, making it great value. There was minimal ice and fresh mint and it was basically spring in a bottle. Absolutely delicious. The muesli bar was exactly what I wanted – a healthy-ish, slightly sweet snack, packed with pepitas, dried apple, honey and other good bits in a perfectly-sized bar. Dad devoured his Portuguese tart and we both agreed that another visit is essential for breakfast soon.
