Bank Street’s newest ‘grab n go’ takeaway has opened.
Shaun Campbell and Simon Orders, owners of CBD hotspot Bank Street Social, are behind the new venture, which opened to the public in October.
Aptly named Recess, Campbell tells us we can expect “a contemporary tuckshop serving healthy snacks, lunches, and coffee”.
Recess is a hole-in-the-wall space, with a focus on quick, accessible takeaway. According to Campbell, the menu won’t be fully vegetarian but it will be plant centric, with an emphasis on fresh, local produce.
Campbell says so far, the response to Recess has been very positive, with customers “amazed” at the quality of food coming out of such a small kitchen. Campbell tells us the food is restaurant-quality, whilst retaining a street food vibe.
Recess chef, Harry Wilson, has returned to his Adelaide hometown after training in London. He has joined the team after a stint at Orana’s Sydney pop-up.
Drinks wise, Campbell tells us Recess is pouring the ‘Dark Horse’ blend from local city-based SOHO Coffee Roasters. Fresh-pressed juices are also on offer.
Campbell has also stated that 100% of the packaging will be recyclable or compostable.
With Sans-Arc is behind the design and a soundtrack with a heavy lean towards 80s power ballads, Recess may just be the ideal stop off for a pick me up.
You can find Recess at 21 Bank Street.
Opening hours: Mon-Fri, 7am-4pm
