2015 Judges’ Comments
Box Office, just off Pakington Street in West Geelong offers a sheltered alfresco area focused around a stylish shipping container. It is a smoothly running magnet for the local, best known for its coffee. The alfresco space with heaters and colourful crocheted rugs is a perfect place to while away time on a cold winter’s day, and the side garden is equipped to keep children amused. The menu was innovative with an emphasis on local produce augmented by a healthy range of sandwiches, wraps, cakes and slices. Picture perfect and tempting best describes the presentation of all dishes. A micro-herb here, an edible flower there, elevates their dishes to lofty heights. Healthy choices abound both on the food menu and the beverage special’s board. Freshly made fruit juices and smoothies augment an excellent coffee and tea selection. Friendly, understated, and attentive defines the customer service. Given the stylish atmosphere, high quality of food, coffee and other beverages, Box Office delivered excellent value for money.
