Hello Cafe Lovers!
My friend Beth and recently went to Shanklin Cafe in Hawthorn for a quick bite to eat. The staff were so friendly and welcoming as the greeted us with warm smiles when we walked through the doors.
FOOD & DRINKS
The menu was great and we both found there were plenty of choices. We just found that it was slightly more expensive than other cafes in the area.
The coffee was good and came out nice and hot. It was just what I needed for that cold Melbourne morning.
Coffee Rating: 3/5
I ordered Porridge with banana, mixed berry compote, apple, shaved coconut, black chia and cinnamon. It was delicious and just what I felt like on that morning. The flavour combinations were fantastic, it wasn’t overly sweet and the fruit brought enough sweetness to the dish.
Beth ordered Eggs & Shanklish with scrambled eggs, fresh herbs, cherry tomatoes, spring onions, wilted spinach and mint. She thoroughly enjoyed the dish. The serving size was very generous as Beth struggled to finish the dish. She said that the flavours were fantastic and the eggs were cooked to perfection. She said she would definitely order this dish again and can see why it’s their signature dish.
ENVIRONMENT & SERVICE
The staff at Shanklin were fantastic and really on the ball. They welcomed us as soon as we walked in and checked on us a number of times.
The cafe had a very relaxed atmosphere and we felt as if we could sit there all day and drink coffee and chat.
