Mr Robertson Cafe
Meet Mr Robertson—the new kid on the block in Nunawading’s industrial estate brought to you by the creative team behind Mister and Miss Cafe in Surrey Hills. This trendy space features a monochromatic colour scheme with timber floors and tables and sleek white marble benchtops. If you are coming alone to study or punch out a few boring work emails, there are private booths. Otherwise, there are both outdoor and indoor seating for all weather conditions catering for small or large groups.
Now onto the important part...the food. The menu boasts all the usual suspects you want to cure your weekend hangovers including all-day breakfast and an extensive lunch choice. Mr Robertson has also paired up with Axil Coffee Roasters who are churning out arguably the best brews in Melbourne with a vast drinks menu as well as their specialty cold drip coffee. The tea list even offers a description of exactly what it does to your body...who knew English Breakfast could be so multi-talented? Shining stars on the brunch menu include the indulgent and totally naughty chocolate drizzled pancakes with vanilla mascarpone, the zucchini and cauliflower fritters with a cheeky side of bacon and the Moroccan chicken burger with all the trimmings and fries, of course.
Fear not of bringing the kids along for a family outing as Mr Robertson delivers a kid-friendly menu including chocolate milkshakes and eggs on toast while you indulge in something more sophisticated. If you’re wondering exactly who Mr Roberston is...no, he is not going to cook nor deliver your food to your table. In fact, the new cafe is named after the Daniel Robertson construction site in Station Street and the heritage-protected chimney lies at the site opposite the cafe. Enough of the history lesson, cancel your plans and get down to Nunawading for an assault on your tastebuds.
