On a lazy morning a couple of weeks ago I headed to Brunswick for some quality ‘me’ time. Laptop, book and oodles of time in hand, my destination was Lucy Lockett on Barkly Street. The new-ish café, with a huge renovation undertaken about 18 weeks ago to incorporate a large, open feel with communal tables, bench seats and a huge patio / courtyard area out front, was a perfect place to take some time off. The café was busy but not too noisy or packed – which allowed for a leisurely morning.

I started with coffee. My flat white was beautifully made using an artisan espresso north Melbourne roaster that i hadn't heard of before... Bailey. Delicious. The rest of the drink menu is pretty extensive too (hooray!) with a good mix of hot / cold beverages including juices, as well as teas and ice drinks for the non-coffee lovers.

Coconut chia pudding with strawberries, mint sorbet + candied chilli seeds


Without a doubt, this is the best chia pudding I’ve tried (and quite possibly also the prettiest!). I consistently struggle to make chia pudding at home (too much coconut milk, not enough coconut milk, too long spent resting, not enough time resting) so I love indulging in some when out for breakfast. And this one was scrumptious! The extra dose of coconut milk on top helped to make this really creamy, and the chia itself had a lovely and fresh coconut flavour which really lifted it. The fresh strawberries added a fruity crisp element along with the crunchy chilli seeds, which were similar to small chunks of muesli / granola. By far, my favourite element of the dish was the mint sorbet, almost like a granita, which just lifted the dish to a whole other level! I could’ve easily devoured two of these!

I also couldn’t resist a house-made chai tea with soy milk. It was spicy and packed with plenty of cinnamon… this was one of the nicest chai teas I’ve had in a long time. And the homemade raspberry and white chocolate brownie was the perfect morning tea snack (devoured before I even had time to think about a photo!).

Overall, it was a memorable experience with personalised and friendly service, in a casual and laid-back environment. I would definitely go back, especially for that chia pudding!


Inlovewithbrunch verdict: my new favourite chia pudding in melbourne!
