The Mount Barker community is set to welcome a new addition in Olceaceae (oh-lee-see-ah), a Mediterranean eatery.
Owned by Amy Daher who comes from a family already familiar with the world of hospitality, and with a Lebanese background, Oleaceae will be something different in the Mount Barker dining scene.
At the start of a two year journey, Amy was looking for just the right setting when she came upon the Adelaide Hills cottage.
The venue is expansive, with a beautiful rustic interior which Amy has not touched, except to add Oleaceae’s modern-esque furniture and some greenery.
Indoors and outdoors seating are separated in discrete areas which Amy tells us benefits the current COVID-19 restrictions.
While seating restrictions will change this number, the capacity for Oleaceae is 50 to 60 people.
On the food front, Oleaceae will be offering mix of cuisines; Italian, Greek, Middle Easter, French and more, in a casual dining setting.
The menu will feature lots of wraps and salads, but Amy tells us they are notably full of twists.
Their breakfast menu will have a focus on eggs with Mediterranean influences.
Expect other Mediterranean ingredients like feta and halloumi to have a strong presence.
There’ll even be croissants, French style, for breakfast-goers.
Amy hopes that their food offering will prove to be something different to the current Mount Barker scene.
If everything proceeds to plan, Oleaceae will explorer night dining which will include barbecues, mezze and other good stuff.
Oleaceae is slated to open in two weeks and will be open from Thursday to Sunday from breakfast to lunch.
You’ll find Oleaceae at 2 Gawler Street, Mount Barker.
