It's 100% recommended for you to meander the streets of Berry and not hastily drive through without a second glance. It's also 100% recommended to drop by the bakery (if you don't have a chance to actually dine in the cafe) and pick up as many goodies as you think you can handle!

House made pastrami and sauerkraut sandwich with gruyere and dijon mustard on rye $14
While Brewtown is known for their boutique coffee, the food also draws much applaud for their paddock to plate approach. Definitely a little fancier than your usual cafe options, there's a lot of unique and tasty dishes to try. On this particular occasion it was hard not to go past the show-stopping pastrami sandwich. Mammoth in proportions, the sandwich was definitely rich in flavour with a very distinct tang from the sauerkraut but about three quarters of the way full it felt as if your stomach was about to explode!
Meatball, tomato, basil sauce and mozzarella baguette $15
Not too dissimilar to the pastrami sandwich comes the meatball baguette which is quite similar to the Gnome rendition. A hearty lunch option, it definitely fills the spot on a hungry afternoon.
Absolutely terrible of me not to have any photos of their famed and utterly delicious

Pacific oysters served with red wine and eschallot, chardonnay and cucumber vinegar and spicy marie rose $4 each
Oysters are one of those delicacies I absolutely love. Served on ice and there's nothing better! There's an oyster bar at Ananas so you'd expect the oysters to be fresh and bountiful which is everything you could want.
Steak Frites - Cape Grim pasture fed fillet 240g served with bernaise $45
A good steak frites is a simple but delicious dish. A perfectly cooked medium-rare steak with a mountain of super crispy fries is one of those type of dishes I could eat each night for dinner and finish with a satisfying grin. The steak was perfectly pink in the center as I love it so there definitely no complaints. While the steak doesn't top the list of my all-time-favourite steak (Prime, I'm looking at you!) the steak was very good and definitely one I'd recommend if you're looking for a good steak in the CBD.
Pan-roasted pork cutlet served with caramelised apples, artichoke, tarragon vinaigrette $38
Snickers revolution $18
I think Ananas really shines in their desserts which are absolutely delectable! The Snickers revolution is particularly noteworthy as a combination of classic flavours presented in a deconstructed, unique way. The delicious mix of chocolate and peanut flavours were made much more interesting with the different textures from chopped peanuts, smooth ice cream, tempered chocolate and chocolate crumbs. Definitely worth a visit at any time either in the restaurant or bar.
