Located in heart of South Melbourne, just a hop and a skip away from the historic South Melbourne Market, The Coventry pleases with exciting Asian and Mediterranean influenced brunch options alongside quality coffee.
Earthy tones and splashes of greenery create a welcoming space, perfect for lazy weekend brunches. The café is relatively new but runs like a well-oiled machine. Not surprising given owner, Nick Bourgazas is a hospitality veteran – he’s owned venues such as Piatella and Meat in the Middle in Glen Waverley.
As expected of any great Melbourne café, the coffee is excellent. Guests can expect speciality coffee poured by adept baristas.
On the food front we fell in love with the Korean Fried chicken and waffles. Wonderfully crispy morsels of Korean style fried chicken sat atop fluffy freshly made waffles and were then laced with a luscious bourbon and maple syrup dressing. Just yum!
If you prefer something sweet then make sure you take your pick out of their dedicated Crepes and Waffles menu. We devoured our peanut butter and jelly crepes – Think delicate paper thin crepes adorned with peanut butter, slivered almonds and berry compote. You really can’t go wrong here.
