WHAT WE ATE...
Little Chloe’s menu is Modern Australian with a big Asian influence. I decided to have the ‘Red chilli scrambled eggs with crispy bacon, spring onion and Persian fetta on sourdough toast ($15.50)’. My favourite place to have chilli scrambled eggs is Finders Keepers in Hawthorn so they have some stiff competition... The tremendous pile of scrambled egg had just the right amount of heat. The bacon and Persian fetta were perfect additions.

My dining companion chose the ‘Tasmanian smoked salmon on a potato rosti with mango and green tea chutney, smashed avocado and Persian fetta, and a poached egg ($17.50)’. This seems to be a popular dish as everyone around us was ordering it too. The crunch of the rosti went well with the opulent smoked salmon and smashed avocado. The mango and green tea chutney was a unique accompaniment that worked very well.
WHAT WE DRANK...
Little Chloe is a Micro Roaster and their coffee is very good indeed. Filter coffee is available via AeroPress, V60, or Batch Brew for $4.50. My Latte ($3.80) was yummy with both fruit and chocolate notes.
The tables were pretty close together which I’m not a big fan of unless I want to listen in on a riveting conversation next to me... The service was efficient but lacked a bit of warmth.
