The Glass Den is a shining beacon of breakfast-y light in Coburg, nestled in the old Pentridge Prison site and headed by Mini Pakchima—a head chef with a fondness for Thai infusions.
Offering quality, ethically sourced products, the Den delivers a unique menu with a subtle nod to its South East Asian influence via ingredients like coconut, pandan, jackfruit and lotus root—all seamlessly integrated into brunch standards like french toast, hotcakes and poached eggs.
Take the coconut hotcakes for example: made from almond meal, they are topped with grilled banana, jackfruit, lotus root compote, maple syrup, toasted coconut, taro chips & home made coconut mousse. If you're a savoury lover, we recommend the eggs au gratin, with a soft potato bed and confit Portobello mushrooms nestled amongst broccolini, poached egg, hollandaise & kale sesame crumble. Delish.
The Glass Den is also a venue that is dedicated to hiring and training women as well as culturally, sexually and gender diverse persons—creating an inclusive space for all citizens. And if that doesn't get you in there quick smart, then the food surely will.
