Adding spice to Adamstown strip
HaHa's Eatery started during COVID operating as a pre-order takeaway pop-up from Merewether Uniting Church Hurch Hall on weekends, serving home-style Vietnamese dishes cooked by Maria and her mum.
In November the opportunity to take over this café (previously Little Brown Wolf Espresso) on Brunker Road felt like the right move.
The menu is a mix of Australian-style cafe breakfasts and light meals such as avocado smash, blueberry pancakes and acai bowls, along with Vietnamese options for lunch.
Opening a café also allows Maria to share her passion for great coffee, serving beans from Gateshead-based roasters Josie Coffee.
On weekends, the menu expands to offer home-made spring rolls; banh mi sliders; lemongrass beef and coconut chicken Vietnamese rolls; and Café HaHa's signature vermicelli noodles served with spring rolls and a choice of grilled pork, lemongrass beef, or grilled seitan and tofu.
We have applied to change the cafe's license in order to trade for dinner on Friday and Saturday evenings.
"We would like to keep it quite exclusive because the whole thing with HaHa's Eatery was we never pre-made anything. It was all made fresh," Maria.
