Bottomless brunches, viral insta-worthy desserts, smoking rainbow cocktails—Zero Mode has it all. This suburban cafe and bar has had a rapid rise to fame thanks to their cream cakes which literally ooze creamy goodness.
Located in the heart of Box Hill, Zero Mode is the new go-to cafe on the east side. They’re a cafe and dessert bar by day, and a restaurant and cocktail bar by night. The menu is full of other indulgent and creative delights—we’re talking adorable bear-shaped panna cottas floating in your drinks, poke bowls for days, and tempura cauliflower with yellow curry cream. Speaking of cream though, it’s the cream cakes you have to try.
It’s all in the reveal. When your cream cake is brought to the table, the plastic collar is lifted from the cake, releasing the cream which sinks down over the cake—anyone else drooling? These tasty treats come in six tantalising flavours including Ferrero Rocher, matcha, chocolate, bubble tea, strawberry cheesecake and the newest addition, Tiffany Blue.
As for those cocktails we mentioned, these kaleidoscopic delights taste as good as they look. Continuing the theatrical slant of the cafe, the signature cocktails are brought to you with a clear dome over the glass which is removed to release the smoke. It’ll transport you back to school and the first time you saw dry ice—only this time, there’s a cocktail underneath.
Zero Mode is open Monday to Sunday from 8am to 9pm, book your bottomless brunch or rock up for the dessert of your dreams.
