Tucked away in the backstreets of Ashfield, lays a quirky cafe surrounded by houses, houses and more houses. Excelsior Jones is specifically catered for local diners of the area in which it provides a great hang-out for the locals serving up simple and comforting foods at the tip of their fingers. What brought me to excelsior jones was that I wanted to go somewhere without the eastern suburbs hustle and bustle and was looking forwarding to trying something hidden away.
Excelsior jones is no where located near the chinese dumpling hub of Ashfield and is closer to Hurlstone park, Canterbury, Campsie way. Their menu is extensive and offers various breakfast / brunch lunch options which is catered to suit almost any taste-buds. Can’t go wrong if you’re a local in the area and very lucky to have a cafe like this in your backyard which doesn’t consist of xao long bao’s.
