Pope Joan cooks with the best seasonal and local produce hand-in-hand with Mr. Wilkinson’s food ethos. It’s simple – Mother Nature tells us what’s on and what’s not. Food in season tastes the best, ‘specially when it’s grown in tune with nature. That’s why Joan has partnered up with some outstanding food producers and farmers whose appreciation of organic and biodynamic practices, and respect for animal and environmental well-being echo her own. Close partnerships with producers enable the Pope to cook with the best produce and work closely with growers who “tailor-make” just for her.

Daytime means your choice of all-day breakfasts, sweet delights or perhaps one of the daily specials with a glass of wine or a spritzer with our home made cordial. Don’t ever think papal ingredients are predictable – little touches like our bacon, yoghurt and maple syrup, that are beautifully smoked by Melbourne Pantry, make for unique flavours. The Pacdon Park free-range pork sausage is no ordinary banger, and same goes for the eggs from Milawa. The sandwiches are killer – try ‘The Cuban’ pulled-pork sanga, winner of World’s Best at the Sandwichship Championship 2012. And much more…
