Right at home for brunch at The Counter in Hawthorn
Suburban kitchen meets country garden, this little cafe will make you feel right at home.
As the name suggests, there’s a long, low counter for dining and sipping your brew of choice, while shelves display provisions and preserves. Outside, there are marble and timber tables.
Saturday brunchers make their plans for the night while keeping their dogs at heel.
An array of pastry treats fill one side of the counter, tempting you to grab one (or two).
On the menu are brunch creations, including chilli-folded eggs with house-minted labne, and the new season asparagus and shaved pecorino omelette.
Coffee, of course. Also smoothies such as date, banana and almond, and berry and rose.
The perfect way to brunch – a must try.
