The Westport & Lee Cafe is the latest addition in the upper Paddington area. It has three separate dining areas as it is in a three-story building. The owner, Stephanie, made sure that she put every room into good use.

The name was derived from Westport, New York, where she traveled and fell in love with the Adirondack chairs. She then set out to make a cafe built around the remarkable chair. Now, her cafe clearly represents the qualities of the chair: simple, comfortable, and unpretentious.

She aims to bring simple food to the customers but are high-quality. “Our food is very much related to relaxation and happiness. We would love for people to be able to eat here and be better for it by providing them with the best possible options for food they know and love,” Stephanie said.

Now the cafe that took over the former occupant, Chocolate & Orange, looks like a breath of fresh air along the street with the new fresh coat of paint, timber furniture in shades of turquoise, white, and black, matched with new artwork and a beautiful back deck enclosed in beautiful trees. Every customer that comes in will feel right at home, just the way Stephanie envisioned it to be.

The cafe offers only breakfast and lunch menu. You can’t go wrong with some eggs benny on sourdough. On the other hand, if you’re feeling up for something bigger than that, try their big breakfast with eggs, an abundance of delicious vegetables such as mushrooms, tomatoes, baby spinach, and for the pièce de résistance, some strips of crisp bacon and sausage. It comes with toasted Turkish bread and some potato hash.

If you’re on a diet, then their Stacked Veggies is highly-recommended. It comes with a toaster Turkish bun with green beans, snow peas, spinach, asparagus tossed in delicious pesto topped with a poached egg, halloumi, and more pesto.

For lunch, you can choose from their wide selection such as salads, frittatas and tarts, burgers, pizza, and risotto.

It’s not a cafe without freshly-brewed coffee, and their coffee is amazing. You also don’t want to miss their delicious milkshakes because they will just put you in so much comfort that you never want to get up out of the Adirondack.
