Townhouse is a gorgeous light-filled café on Toorak Rd and the second venture of Prospect Espresso's founders Matt Ward and Mitchell Haworth. The décor in this warm converted townhouse is crisp and clean with beautiful timber tables and high ceilings - a definite respite from the freezing sleet-like rain that was blanketing Melbourne today.
The coffee was mild, smooth and delicious and after watching the barista's work I could see they take great pride and care in their quality.
Omelette with rocket, herbs + goats cheese with beetroot chutney + sourdough toast.
Perfectly fluffy omelette with a layer of herbs + strong delicious goats cheese in the middle. The sourdough toast was something special - thick-cut, soft and fresh and the beetroot chutney was incredible. The chutney tasted of star anise, an unexpected but delicious combination.
Firstly, the pancakes were golden and crispy on the edges, filled with blueberries in the middle + overall really tasty. Coupled with light and airy vanilla mousse + blueberry sauce - these were a perfect sweet end to a really enjoyable meal.
