“German sausage plate -Yum”
Review of The Fennel Seed

The Fennel Seed
Ranked #1 of 37 Restaurants in Bellingen
Certificate of Excellence
Price range: USD 9 - USD 20
Cuisines: European
Description: Casual European eatery with the kitchen headed by Swiss chef Renato Silvestri. Renato endeavours to use the vast array of fresh local ingredients in his menus. The coffee served is Di Manfredi which has become a popular choice in Bellingen. The Fennel Seed has an alfresco area which has proved very busy & ideal to enjoy most of the year. Inside we have a casual seating arrangement with a long community table for groups. The deli counter provides items for the very popular German sausage plate & also the Ploughmans plate which is often ordered as a shared "grazing plate". The Fennel Seed opens evenings for group bookings with prior arrangement. Small functions can also be catered for. We provide a licensed venu with beers, wines & ciders available to enjoy.

We shared the German Sausage Plate which had 3 different types of sausage, sauerkraut, potato salad, mustard and salad. We ordered some sourdough to go with it. It was delicious, and enough for the two of us.
The menu had a good variety to choose from.
Staff/owners were very pleasant and accommodating.
I would recommend The Fennel Seed.

My wife and I eat at the Fennel seed once a month when we visit
the Bellingen markets. The food is consistently excellent, drinks are reasonably priced, the staff are on the ball. The restaurant is spacious, spotless and airconditioned. Looking forward to our next visit.
Enjoy.

We had a sleep in and arrived at 11.30 hoping to be able to have breakfast. It was no trouble for the chef in this lovely bistro. We had the special which was a mixture of house made European sausages with speck and poached eggs on a rosti. Food was simply delicious and the coffee was perfect. Service is incredibly friendly and a very relaxed environment. Highly recommend stopping here.

The Fennel Seed cafe has a great ambiance, friendly staff and a great gluten free range (which I love as I have coeliac disease). I can also highly recommend the Gluten Free citrus tart. It is not often I find gluten free treats as delicious as this! I highly recommend you stopping in for a bite to eat :)
