Sutton's Kitchen Door
feel like going out? Stay home. Prefer home cooking? Make your own. Want to see
people? Invite them over. Want to do something different? Put it all together and
get: a pop-up café.
a million years ago, I used to hang out from time to time with people in the
arts and theatre industry. One of those people was Katrina Sutton. Around that
time she was operating ‘Sutton’s Cafe’ at the Peacock Theatre. Now she’s established
a café and catering business at home.

on display looked so good and I was cursing my limited capacity. Delayed
gratification is not my strength. Why o why can’t I try everything now?
rare roast beef slider, $5
Middle Eastern cauliflower cake served with yoghurt and lime zest, tomato
chutney and coleslaw with dill, $8
in the interest of blogging I took dessert to go:
compote cheesecake in a jar, $6
date pudding with butterscotch sauce, $8
was enough dessert for something sweet after dinner and breakfast. There is
something decadent about eating pudding in bed in the morning.
in all, it was a delightful experience. It was a pleasure to hangout in Katrina’s
welcoming, comfortable home, in front of the fire, admiring her aesthetic and
enjoying the food.
don’t you follow Sutton’s Kitchen Door on Facebook and next time Katrina opens
up her home, take some friends and enjoy something a little bit different?
