Intro: French Toast.. who would’ve known it would cause such commotion! I had to calm the tastebuds

Details: 121 Glenferrie Rd Malvern 9509 9119

Surroundings: Bright and cosy with a little nook in the rear presenting a classic courtyard shaded under leafy trees. Perfect for the long Summer days..



Liquid consumption: One of the only few places that serve the St Ali blend. Please refer to the St Ali review. Of course, I required at least two cups of the stuff – 1 flat white and 1 cappuccino.


Main: Lashings of cinnamon and sugar cover the French Toast made with Chala extra think bread ( soft/moist on the inside, crispy exterior) served with welcomed condiments of double cream, maple syrup and berry compote served all in their own little pods so not to drench the poor dish.


I tell you what! This goes down as the ultimate weekend breakfast indulgence- each piece is succumbed to the sweetness of the maple, the juiciness and tanginess of the berries and the double cream to neutralise the palate leaving an aftertaste of the savouriness of the egg dipped bread.

This combination explodes in your mouth creating tastebud frenzy.

I’m not usually into French Toast as it always seems to disappoint. Too often, it is soggy, bland, made with thin average bread and just saved by the maple. People could make better at home.


Eden have definitely hit a soft spot… or should I say, hunger spot.

Dessert: Are you kidding?!

Bring a date here? Indeed. Weekend breakfast is perfect, especially for first dates- excuses are a plenty at goodbye time e.g.: “oh, sorry, gotta run, I have alot of washing to do- call me?”

Service: Great staff here- enthusiastic about the products and definitely, mean bean masters

$$$: 17

Food Rehab Verdict: Sent me to food rehab (book this place now! Wowzer) – Greenlight

I love accidental findings. I stumbled across this place after discovering my usual brekkie joint: Sugo, in the same area was closed over the holiday period. Lucky it was!

Times revisited: 6

Update- July 09- The coffee is still as glorious as ever- had the privilege of chatting with the friendly barista/Manager where he took time out to explain the direction of the cafe and it all sounds promising indeed. Looking forward to my next visit.
