Recently, we spent the day at our Redfern stockist, Henry Lees. An eclectic cafe hidden in the back streets of Sydney’s newest arts and culture precinct, the place oozes ‘cool’ from the moment you walk in. With exposed brick surrounding their quirky indoor/outdoor seated layout and handcrafted ceramics on show alongside their feature wall of artwork that pays homage to the history of what was once an Australian hosiery mill, the space is designed to ignite creativity.
And it doesn’t stop there. The menu itself has been carefully curated with local offerings in mind, ensuring each dish is seasonal and full of flavour.
With a strong emphasis on collaboration, Henry Lees is all about supporting artisanal, creative and small batch producers so that they may continue to ‘thrive and survive’ – it’s for that reason alone, we love them.
We tried the ‘Henry’s Dream’ and ‘Autumn Salad’
Paying homage to the history of the building, the quote “The Secret of their Merit is Woven into Every Pair” was the catchphrase of Wearproof Hosiery, an Australian brand which operated out of a mill at 16 Eveleigh Street in Redfern in the 1930s.
