First impressions aren't everything; but they do go a long way... which is why I was already optimistic about our brunch when I walked into Townhouse this morning and immediately greeted with friendly smiles and hellos by two of the four staff.

Townhouse is a gorgeous light-filled cafΓ© on Toorak Rd and the second venture of Prospect Espresso's founders Matt Ward and Mitchell Haworth. The dΓ©cor 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.

+
+
Poached eggs + bacon. My husband's Saturday morning 'default' breakfast, but delicious none-the-less. Egg yolks were runny + the bacon was good quality Aussie style.


+
Rye, Chia Seed + Blueberry Pancakes with vanilla mousse + maple syrup.
+

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.

+
Throughout our meal the friendly service continued. Add to that the great quality food and coffee, this is a real find in the midst of Toorak Village.
