Eaterie is a brand new French and Breton restaurant coming to Hutt Street, set to open on 24 July.
Founded by former architects Stephanie and Hugues Vilette, Eaterie is a socially conscious French patisserie, crêperie and art space.
The couple are originally from Brittany in France but moved to the Fleurieu Peninsula fifteen years ago.
As well as an architect, Stephanie is also a patisserie chef with extensive knowledge of French and Breton food. She works closely with local producers and uses seasonal ingredients.
“I use the best quality and tasty ingredients following seasons and sourced locally. All food I create deserve impeccable attention to ravish eyes and taste. Each bite has to make you fly,” says Stephanie.
The Vilette family have a daughter with Down Syndrome and a passion and desire to employ people with special needs.
They wish to create more inclusion within the community through the unique way that food can bring diversity to the table.
The menu offers an original range of patisseries including savoury tarts, quiches, sweet tarts, crepes and Bouchées platters. Pair this with a coffee or tea and you’re in for a lovely afternoon.
The menu caters towards all dietary requirements.
“I want everybody to enjoy food as I do,” says Stephanie. “Being a French chef, I create the best patisseries for enchanting people’s palate in simple or special life moments.”
Eaterie also offers catering platters on weekdays for corporate and private functions, providing finger food, rolls and dips.
Visit Eaterie at 237-239 Hutt Street.
