Mr and Mrs Tucci must be proud - their son knows how to revamp a sleepy suburban shopfront into a buzzing, contemporary cafe that serves great food and coffee. It's easily the most popular cafe in the Mt Waverley shopping village and a trailblazer for the area when it comes to upping the ante on the cafe offerings in the area.
Feeling ever so hungry, the Lawyer and I both went for the burger option. It was a gorgeously thick, homemade beef patty that was loaded with chopped onions in the mince. It was pan fried to perfection - the middle was still juicy and the outside had all them lovely crusty bits. Combined with lots of oozy melted cheese, fresh salad this was a finger-licking good burger. Plus, the chunky wedges were some of the best I've had - thick, waxy on the inside and with a lovely crispness. Yum, yum, yum - our compliments to the chef!
As a sickly sweet couple, we not only chose the same meal, we also chose the same drink - a lovely chai latte. I really love the chai here and I've come back a few times already to get it as my takeaway pick-me-up.
Inside it's bright and airy with a faux industrial look. I especially love the abundance of fresh flowers and plants.
We loved it.
A great cafe to the Mt Waverley shopping village. It's very popular all days of the week.
