Mister Brightside Cafe | Sourdough Kitchen
In this post, I’ll cover bits n bobs and swift visits that aren’t exactly full brunches but still deserve mention.
189a Booran Rd
Caulfield South, VIC 3162
03 9576 9588
MR BRIGHTSIDE VEGETABLE JUICE $6.50
carrot, orange and ginger
Bottom line for this café is: pretty fit-out alert!
WAGYU BEEF BURGER $17.00
cheese, caramelised onion, fresh tomato, lettuce, mustard and fries
I caught up with a colleague here one afternoon, and had a wholesome vegetable juice and a really good Wagyu beef burger. Twice happy. Loved the burger’s buttery soft bun!
Mr Brightside is such a breezy and open café in Caulfield South. It feels as if the the skeletal frame of a wood shed has been placed inside, and tables built into it.
Next, let’s now cross over to the other end of town. This is a bakery café that I’ve visited several times to date, but never quite got around to mentioning.
While I’ve previously brunched here once, the main reason for my visits are these baked goodies. My budding sweet tooth has been getting more and more pushy…!
Chocolate Croissant $3.20 (takeaway)
The difference here is: the croissants are all sourdough. When I first bit into their sourdough chocolate croissant, its tangy lift caught my heart.
Almond Croissant $3.50 (takeaway)
To put it simply, these sourdough croissants taste like heaven to me. I’ve been buying them over and over again whenever I’m in the area – Common Galaxia being just down the road.
But mind you, it tastes quite different from traditional croissants. Because sourdough is used, the breads are denser, with less airy flakiness. Still, I can’t get enough of them!
If you bought these as takeaway, make sure they are warmed up in the oven before enjoying. Makes a big difference!
