We are looking to bring the refinement, service standards and amazing quality ingredients from the Dining room into a more relaxed casual dining experience of Jack Rabbits. ” Adds Laura

Jack Rabbits offers an all day menu, which includes hand-roasted coffee, fabulous brunch favourites, lunches with continental twists, homemade cakes, exquisite wines and local beers. They pride themselves on baking their own bread, cakes and biscuits in house and its team of skilled chefs work hard to deliver delicious baked goods everyday.

Pete and Laura are career professionals in hospitality and will bring the refinement, service excellence and enhanced food operations that will push the business to greater horizons”
