Short Straw, Hawthorn

·         Wild mushrooms, chorizo, rainbow chard, fried enoki, poached eggs, pumpkin loaf, shaved manchego ($18.00)
·         Thai sardine salad with whole fried sardines, bean shoots, peanut, coconut, sweet soy, Asian herb slaw, tamarind, fresh chilli ($20.00) *gluten free
·         Morning grain salad with quinoa, brown rice, pomegranate, sumac corn, pistachio, poached egg, chai soaked sultanas, beetroot leaves, cumin yoghurt ($16.00)
·         Vietnamese scrambled eggs, fresh chilli, toasted roti bread, sweet soy, papaya, Asian herb salad ($15.00)

I chose the ‘Buttermilk hotcakes, blueberry compote, vanilla mascarpone, maple, roasted hazelnut ($16.00)’. A stack of three hotcakes arrived with a lovely combination of blueberries and hazelnuts on top. I managed to eat the whole thing as it was scrumptious but this was indeed a very filling dish.

My dining companion decided to order the ‘Zucchini and feta fritters, house-made chilli jam, avocado, sumac corn, shaved cauliflower and apple slaw ($15.00)’. The fried fritters were very tasty on their own. The fiery chilli jam and the freshness of the slaw complemented the flavour of the fritters.

My latte ($3.80) made with Niccolo Coffee was pretty good.

There is a plethora of delightful cafés in Hawthorn and no doubt you have your favourites… However, there is a new café on the block that might end up on your revised favourites list. Short Straw is located just off Glenferrie Road and has a wonderful, relaxed vibe and a brilliant menu. The interior is light and cheery with hanging baskets full of greenery. Try it out for yourself next time you are in Hawthorn…
