A cafe darling of Hawthorn, Shanklin Cafe is all about warm service, delicious coffee and food.
The menu is reasonably priced, fresh and is underpinned by the ethos that café should deliver a comforting experience. The food served by the kitchen ranges from well-loved breakfast favourites to hearty lunch items.
The absolute highlight of our visit was the corn fritters. The corn fritters had a crunchy golden brown exterior and were succulently sweet - the nuggets of deep fried batter brought pleasure to our taste buds. Together with creamy guacamole salsa, coriander and yoghurt, this was a respectable assembly of breakfast essentials.
The café also offers delectable baked goods that are perfect to enjoy with your coffee or whatever rocks your boat (they've got plenty of hipster options as well including matcha lattes and golden lattes). Whatever you do, do not go past the baklava – they are some of the best we’ve had in Melbourne.
