Perfectly adapting to Mount Eliza’s tranquil neighbourhood, Ad Hoc brings its own flavour to the village. Among the quaint groups of shops, this beachside treasure is a little slice of paradise.
Since 2016 locals have been enjoying the exciting twist chefs Deon Jansen and James Laundrum have put on fresh produce and sweet treats. Located just across from the Village Green, Ad Hoc provides so many options — Sunday morning takeaway before heading to the Mount Eliza Farmers Market, a mid-morning brunch date, or a coffee and croissant to go with your morning paper. A fantastic family location, Ad Hoc welcomes all sizes and have babyccinos on standby.
With pared back interiors softened by big, comfy cushions and lush hanging plants, Ad Hoc lets you sink right into the calm setting while you relax and wait for the modern Australian cuisine headed your way. Stylish minimalism is offset with the vibrant colours of the seasonal menu catering to sweet-tooths and savoury snackers.
Served on an ocean green blue plate that mirrors the seaside backdrop, the sriracha cheesy scramble is sure to light up the taste buds, while Ad Hoc’s take on an eggs Atlantic (smoked salmon and poached eggs with a sweet potato waffle, avocado and hollandaise sauce with crispy capers) and pulled pork benedict is a welcome take on classic brunch fare. Looking for an afternoon snack? Their spiced carrot and fennel with beetroot yoghurt is no ordinary ‘soup of the day’.
For the sugar lover at heart, berry pancakes are just one of menu favourites locals have come to know and love. The vibrant stack of strawberry pancakes served with ice-cream, honeycomb, white chocolate and lemon curd is one to try.
Currently offering some of the best coffee the Ninch has to offer, they are open daily.
