30 Mill Espresso

When I first thought about 30 Mill in Malvern, I assumed it might be situated at 30 Milton Parade but no... the address is 66 Milton Parade. The café is actually named after a single shot of coffee which is 30 mls. If you catch the train to work from Tooronga Station, then this café is very handy for you to grab your morning coffee. We stopped by this petite eatery for a bite of lunch. Just to let you know... the table next to us ordered some cake and a MASSIVE slice appeared. 30 Mill is not stingy on portion sizes...

·        Blueberry Ricotta Hotcakes with coffee and vanilla whipped mascarpone, pink sugar, sunflower seeds, dried cranberries, strawberries and maple syrup ($15.00)
·        30 Mill Steak Sandwich on a Turkish bun with grilled steak, dijon mustard, tomato, cheese, pickled cucumber, rocket and glazed balsamic ($15.00)
·        Roasted Eggplant and Green Tahini Salad with quinoa, radish, chickpeas, cherry tomatoes and a sweet paprika dressing ($15.00)
·        Pulled Pork Eggs Benny – slow braised pork shoulder and poached eggs on a white bun with homemade hollandaise and an apple and beetroot relish ($16.00)

I was drawn to the ‘Pumpkin and Chickpea Burger on a white bun with cheese, aioli, red onion jam, tomato and watercress ($13.50)’. The burger was a lovely interpretation of a vegie burger. The chickpeas still had some bite which provided contrasting texture in the spicy patty. The red onion jam enhanced the burger and the flour topped bun was great.


My dining companion picked the ‘Corn and Cauliflower Fritters with avocado and feta smash, red onion jam and poached eggs ($16.00)’. This was also a wonderful vegetarian dish. A generous serving of the avocado and feta smash worked perfectly with the fritters. Cauliflower made a welcome addition to the more common corn fritter. The red onion jam once again added flavour.


My latte ($3.60) made with the 30 Mill House Blend was gorgeous. For all you coffee fans, 30 Mill can also make your magic ($3.60), your piccolo ($3.60), or your cold drip ($4.50)...


The place was very well staffed but I would have loved it if they closed the door so I could take my coat off as it was rather chilly in there...
