I love myself a breakfast date. There are so many quirky and busy cafes in Melbourne that it’d be crime for anyone to visit Melbourne and not explore our hidden alleyways and lanes. I found this Mister Close on Urbanspoon and the reviews for the cafe looked promising, but of course you’ll never really know unless your experience for yourself first hand. At 10:30am, the place was fairly busy with people ordering coffees to go…
… while some other people were holding their meetings in the dining area or doing some work. They had these little mason jars filled with small daisy flowers placed on the round tables which I thought were absolutely adorable. The waitress was friendly and attentive. She found us to a little spot in the corner to eat our breakfast because we both prefer to eat in quiet little corners.
We ordered the West African hot chocolate (above) which wasn’t too sweet and had a nice chocolatey aroma. It wasn’t overly sweet, too thick or rich is how I prefer my drinks. A nice tinge of bitterness after taking a sip took over. It was really nice.
Corn and chive waffles served with scrambled eggs, honey roasted ham and avocado mayo. $17.00
I also ended up with the savoury waffles and they were quite amazing. When they first served us our breakfast, I noticed how small the waffles looked and was a little worried if there wasn’t enough food. It didn’t take long before I realised the food is quite filling. It’s heavy in carbohydrates and high in protein. In fact I wasn’t hungry at all for the rest of the day despite walking around the city afterwards.
I’ve been getting encouraged by friends to have a picture of myself eating the food on my blog so I let them take a picture of me. However I’m actually quite camera shy so I just tend to look awkward in them.
Overall a very nice little find and I would definitely come back to Mister Close to try some of their other delicious foods on the menu.
