Madam Tojo Cafe & Bar, Labrador

Madam Tojo in Chirn Park is a real find! It’s no wonder that the locals want to keep it a secret! This is the original ‘alternative’ eating house which must be experienced to be believed!

Madam Tojo’s owner, Antoinette Edmunds, is a renowned local artist and her touch is everywhere in this shop. From the gold tassled curtains, the random table ornaments, eclectic furnishing and oversized armchairs, to the quirky sayings on walls, tables and postcards; from the funky descriptions of menu items (‘…nearly as smooth as the skin of a Latino that passed this way last year…’) to the assortment of luggage perched just under the ceiling, it’s obvious that you are experiencing an avid collector’s love affair with style. You could be mistaken for feeling as though you’ve stepped off the street into another more bohemian carefree time and place, as indeed you have.Curiouser and curiouser…

2013-05-17 16.38.42 And here comes the food. We’re indulging in cake with our coffee (Raspberry macaroon tart with biscotti and Greek yoghurt; Jaffa cake topped with rich chocolate and served with icecream), but the waft of freshly roasting capsicums makes us wonder why we’re not staying for lunch!

It would be difficult to choose between the tapas plates, all handmade with care: Haloumi wrapped in pancetta; Spinach pinenut and parmesan tarts; Crispy flatbread, baba ghanoush, honeyed eggplant and deep fried goat’s cheese, to name a few, and the exciting blackboard special –  Roast pumpkin with mushrooms, crispy pancetta, asparagus and baby mozzarella. As much produce is sourced locally, the rest is the best from elsewhere. All baking, sauces etc. are made in house.

MadamTojo2 But wait! There’s an even better idea. How about ending the working week with a glass of wine, sharing delicious tapas and delectable treats with friends, catching up on news, letting go to drift off gently into the weekend. Now that’s a brilliant idea! Mmmm…It’s as though I’ve been influenced by Tojo herself – how wonderfully sumptuous, fluid, refreshingly odd!

“Where have you been all my life, Madam Tojo!”
