Nestled in the heart of St Leonard’s and within walking distance from st Leonard’s train station is The Moody Chef; a vibrant cafe offering up fresh aromatic coffee courtesy of Vittoria. Since 2004 our well established coffee house has  been opening bright and early for breakfast at 6am, where you can choose between dishes such as the flavoursome “Baked Eggs Shakshuka”, the tasty “Vegan House Granola”, or you can even get creative and “Build your own breakie”. 

With a cool, laid-back and easy going vibe, The Moody Chef is the perfect place for casual and quick lunch. Immerse yourself among the stylish mix of graffitied wall art, hanging Ivy plants, and comfy leather booths – sit back and relax while our staff wait on you.

In a rush? We have plenty of options for you to choose from. We offer fresh grab and go salads, delicious gourmet wraps and sandwiches, and if you fancy something warm, why not try a “Curry of the day” or even a quick takeaway burger combo.

For all the animal lovers out there, we also have an outside dining section for you to enjoy your breakfast or lunch al fresco, along side your pampered pooch. Why not even treat yourself to a cold one… Yes, we are fully licensed! Red, white, rose or beer? The house is yours!

Our dining experience doesn’t stop there. The Moody Chef is also well known for its excellence in the Catering department. If you are looking to order Catering whether it be a lot, or a little – we have you covered.
