We didn’t sit down to eat or have something to drink at the Leura Garage, but I am mentioning it here as I really liked its commercial/industrial decor, and the food looked beautiful. Apparently they converted an old garage building into a chic café/restaurant space. Painted wheel rims and rustic boards were turned into benches, stacked rubber tyres became part of the interior design. If we hadn’t had lunch at the Red Door café, we would have stayed here for a meal:


Yes, the entrance door is very red indeed… The Red Door café welcomes its patrons with a simple yet very friendly and warm interior, a cosy atmosphere and beautiful food. The café was packed when we arrived, and we sat at the counter by the window for a few minutes before a table became available. The service was friendly, helpful and attentive.  The menu offered a range of very enticing looking dishes.

I had a beautiful smoked rainbow trout salad with lentils and rocket salad while my friend enjoyed a chicken leek pie with garden salad and potato mash. Simple yet delicious food.  I forgot to ask whether it was all organic, but it might as well have been. It all looked jolly healthy.

Interestingly, they don’t have their own web site (at least, I tried to google it and didn’t find any), but you can find a range of reviews of the Red Door.  Check this out:
