the classic menu

As much as I love cooking, I don’t enjoy complicated recipes and fussy food. I value simple, beautiful food. I want the ingredients to stand out. At tashas our food is comforting, unpretentious and honest. It’s also memorable – because we constantly strive to innovate and fascinate.

Every dish that is brought to your table epitomises our philosophy: consistent in authenticity and quality, but with a unique twist, because each dish is bespoke and made on order.

  • Everything on our Classic menu is based on timeless café classics that we love and know so well.

    When you arrive at tashas, you will receive both a Classic menu and an Inspired By menu.

    Our Classic menu is offered at all of our locations and is filled with decadent, comfort food.

    Quality and generosity are our watchwords – we never cut corners or portions. We use the freshest, best ingredients from the finest suppliers.

    We aim to change the Classic menu once a year. I hate taking an item off the menu – I worry about the one customer who misses something specific that isn’t available any more. The good news is that when we take a dish off the menu, we can put something new on!
