Light Years, Hawthorn MELB

Chanced upon this cafe when I was around the area covering a few shifts and decided to bring the siblings here in exchange for companionship to a Japanese grocer. The cafe's table seats were already fully occupied at a quarter past ten in the morning and the entire cafe was filled with the aroma of freshly brewed coffee.

Matcha latte - something I missed during my recent trip to Japan. At least I managed to purchase a little pot of it at one of the department stores.

Breakfast bun - chive scrambled eggs, crispy bacon, jarlsberg cheese, spinach and tomato kasundi on brioche bun. A simple breakfast item packed with protein and a good serve of fiber.

Pork belly eggs benedict - was looking forward to this dish but was sadly, a little disappointed at the outcome. The pork belly skin still has a few threads of hair prominently sticking on it and had a strong porky aftertaste on the palate. A little difficult to accurately describe this sensation and can only be best described as a item that could improve with more marination time? Aside from that, this is a pretty adventurous dish suited for those wanting to move away from the classics.

Fish and chips - a little disappointed with the portion of the fish here and I initially thought they were tempura prawns. Salad was well dressed and waffle chips were crisp to my liking. Overall dish would have fared better with a more generous serving of fish.
