Cru, Kew by Rockstar

A friend was visiting from NZ and we needed somewhere with good food, where we could comfortably chat and chat, somewhere central and where we could book. Cru went above and beyond that; without showing any frustration that a few members of the party arrived at different times. Including 2 hours after the booking!

Crispy polenta and that heavenly mushroomy truffly scent....

Cru is nicely designed - there's an outdoor area out the back, however given the Melbourne weather I was pleased to be inside on the comfy bench seat. It's got a lovely European classic feel with cream walls, dark wooden chairs and stools, and cheerful tiles and glass.

Service was fantastic - calm and helpful - even when dealing with our raggedly bunch including Miss 4.

Cru, Kew, coffee
Coffee is their specialty and I was impressed by the prettiness of the coffee serving!

Cru, Kew, hot chocolate
My hot chocolate was just what I needed as the first one to arrive! Well balanced and comforting, and quick to arrive!

Cru, Kew, eggs royale
I chose the eggs royale, a light tasty combo of rum cured ocean trout, thinly sliced English muffin, poached eggs and hollandaise. Sometimes I find English muffins can be so bready and heavy especially with a buttery rich smooth hollandaise. This hit the spot and sustained me through our four hour catch up!!!

My other companions all chose the polenta cakes (see first pic) - I wasn't lucky enough to catch a taste but the smell was divine! Crispy polenta, wild truffled mushrooms, spinach and parmesan shavings. The addition of poached eggs and bacon looked like a smart addition for The New Zealanders while the others were very satisfied without. By the looks of their very clean plates and their relaxed smiles, they enjoyed that magical mushroomy truffly polenta mix!
