New cafe, Leeroy’s has taken the feeling of nostalgia and bottled it (if bottled means open up a cafe that serves cereal).
The childhood brekkie of choice, evidenced at homes and in the US-centric media that we consumed as youth, was undeniably cereal, and Leeroy’s is serving us a big bowl of it.
Leeroy’s came from the minds of Bojan Gasic, Manny Tsacos, and George Rhigas.
Making its home in George’s great grandfather’s barbershop which has been sitting empty for a number of years, the trio began with an ’empty shell’.
“The concept came from wanting to create a place that felt nostalgic & homely,” Manny says.
“Something you’d often reminisce about enjoying when you were a kid.”
What they’ve produced started from scratch.
“The front door was really run down and we really liked the look of it. That was the focal point and we went from there,” Manny says.
“We designed it all ourselves as we went along and completed the entire fit out our selves.”
On the food front, Leeroy’s offers a number of American cereals on rotation available for both dine in & take away, as well as a legit toastie menu.
“We’ve also, after plenty of taste testing, designed what we think are the best toasties we’ve ever had,” Manny says.
One said toastie, aptly named ‘Leeroy’s Favourite’ consists of Goats curd, honey, toasted walnuts, rosemary and Leeroy’s Secret Butter. Which does sound pretty damn good.
The cereal rotation are sourced direct from the US, but the team have plans on getting other international brands in the mix.
Leeroy’s is only open Monday to Friday from 7am ’til 3pm, but they tell us that a few cheeky weekends are in the works, so keep an eye out.
Leeroy’s can be found at 315 Morphett Street, Adelaide.
