Set to take Torquay’s budding food scene by storm, Torquay Orange is the Surf Coast’s newest go-to destination for locals and visitors alike.
Sister to the iconic Barwon Heads venue, Barwon Orange, the all-day eatery is bringing a touch of elegance and a big smack of flavour to the streets of this famous Surf Coast town.
To bring the much-loved concept to life, Torquay Orange’s owner, Judy Stewart, teamed up with local architect, Christina Metcalfe of Nook Architecture, to inject some life into a rundown Bristol Road establishment. The end result is a clean, polished space with a fresh and simple aesthetic, glowing with natural light and an elegant timber and steel fit out.
Within this beautiful space, Judy has developed a cheerful and bright atmosphere, which is complemented by an innovative and delicious selection of dishes. Head Chef, Stewart Neighbour, is the man behind the pass, and has designed a flavoursome menu in consultation with his longtime friend, award-winning chef Sam Pinzone. Together, the boys have crafted an offering that challenges and excites the palates of all who enter, with a colourful cafe-style offering transforming into a refined dinner menu as the sun moves west.
With the aim of setting the tastebuds of even the most adventurous palates alight, Stewart and Sam have looked to a range of local and seasonal produce, inspiring daring flavour combinations that will leave you begging for more. Picture breakfasts like yoghurt panna cotta with freeze-dried mandarin, blueberry compote, house-roasted honey oats and Granny Smith apple, and dinner dishes like pork congee with black bean, szechuan pepper, micro lemon balm and pickled carrot juice.
To wash down all of these impressive plates, Judy and her team offer a range of teas, juices, smoothies and carefully brewed coffees at breakfast and lunch. As the day winds down into the night, the wines come out to play, with bottles hailing from local winemakers and further afield.
An asset to its beautiful Surf Coast setting, Torquay Orange is bringing a touch of elegance and excitement to the blossoming food scene of the Surf Coast and greater Geelong area. Perfect for both locals and visitors, this venue is soon to be a go to location for a variety of hungry bellies.
