Eden's Backyard, Carlton



















If Instagramming photos of food is your thing, then you will be in heaven (or Eden in this case...) at Eden’s Backyard. I was invited to sample the menu at this newly open cafe, which is located north of the Melbourne Museum. Eden’s Backyard is away from the hustle and bustle and the Astroturf and hanging ferns create a lush oasis from the surrounding housing estates. The menu has a Malaysian influence which makes it more interesting than your average café fare. Warning! When you show your friends the photos of your gorgeously plated food from Eden’s Backyard, they may drool with desire and become very envious... It’s okay though. Just tell them to catch the 96 tram up from the city with their iPhones and DSLR’s handy...
