You pour the hot chocolate over the sisko chocolate sphere and it melts down and surprise marshmallows pop up. It’s heaps of fun and delicious too. But a heads up for the photo enthusiasts, eventually the hot chocolate will go cold so make your photo session a quick one.

Long Story Short - Cold drip coffee

Long Story Short – Cold drip coffee

They have cold drip coffee with different drop times so you can decide how strong you want it. It starts from 10 seconds and goes up to a 60 second drop. The longer the time between drops, the stronger the coffee.

In short, the coffee is strong, the hot chocolates are awesome and it’s a great place to enjoy some tasty food for brunch.

I heart Long Story Short!

The Manchengo cheese croquettes were smooth and had a sharp almost smokey cheese flavour.

Axil coffee roasters – Pulled pork tacos

The pulled pork tacos tasted authentic. Each taco had black beans, salsa, a generous amount of smokey pulled pork, pickled cactus, lime, coriander and sprinkled cheese on top. The tacos were blue. They used blue corn tortillas. Did you know there was such a thing? There are actual corn on the cobs out there that are blue. This was news to me. I like the tacos they were tasty and I especially liked that they prompted my discovery of blue corn.

Axil coffee roasters - Ferrero Rocher waffles

Axil coffee roasters – Ferrero Rocher waffles

I love Ferrero Rochers! So you can imagine how excited I was when I saw Ferrero Rocher waffles on the menu. And they did not disappoint. They were omg amazing. The waffles were chocolate with a chocolate sauce and had a good crisp waffle crunch and were soft and fluffy in the middle. There were two big scoops of hazelnut parfait, curls of Gianduja (sweet hazelnut) chocolate, chopped hazelnuts and crushed wafer biscuit on top. The choc hazelnut elements and wafer crunch really made this dessert resemble a Ferrero Rocher. Delicious.

Axil coffee roasters - Red velvet pancakes

The red velvet pancakes were soft and fluffy and was sitting on cream cheese ganache (so good) and raspberry sauce. It was topped with black sesame icecream, chocolate brownie soil and fresh raspberries. It had a lot going on but the flavours balanced out well. The sweetness of the ganache, the bitterness of the black sesame, and the tartness of the raspberry. Yum.

Hash Specialty Coffee and Roasters

Hash Specialty Coffee & Roasters - Street view

Hash Specialty Coffee & Roasters – Melbourne

Hash Specialty Coffee and Roasters is a restaurant open for breakfast and lunch. They have an exciting menu and pride themselves on using top quality ingredients. The food is creative and they do a great coffee. They also do a great hot chocolate. Fairy floss in my hot chocolate? Yes please! Oh the theatre.

Hash Specialty Coffee & Roasters - Signature hot chocolate w fairy floss

Hash Specialty Coffee & Roasters – Signature hot chocolate w fairy floss

Hash is known for it’s signature hot chocolate. It is a cup filled with a mountain of fairy floss accompanied by a beaker of hot chocolate. You pour the hot chocolate over the fairy floss and it slowly dissolves and at the same time effectively sweetens your hot chocolate. However if I am to be completely honest it didn’t happen so smoothly for me. When I saw people doing it around me it looked so easy but unfortunately my poor pouring skills resulted in a last second panic, where I had to quickly grab my teaspoon and hold up mount fairy floss before it collapsed outside of my cup. It all got into the cup though and that’s the important part right? I thought it would be super sweet with what looked like a whole fairy floss in the cup, but the hot chocolate was dark cocao (85%) so the bitterness balanced the candy-like sweetness perfectly. It was rich, full flavoured and delicious. And it still had a slight dark cocao bitterness to it. Loved it.

Hash Specialty Coffee & Roasters - Pork belly w goats cheese & textures of apple

Hash Specialty Coffee & Roasters – Pork belly w goats cheese & textures of apple

The rosted pork belly was amazing. It was soft and juicy with a crispy top. There was a piece of puffed pork crackling (I know it as chicharron) which added a nice crunch element. There was an apple puree, thin slithers of baked apple and juicy poached apple pieces. And we all know how well apple goes with pork. And then it was topped with some goat’s cheese, pickled mustard seeds and hazelnuts, which added a whole new level to pork and apple. It was a clever dish and very delicious.

Hash Specialty Coffee & Roasters - Leek & cheddar croquettes w ham hock

Hash Specialty Coffee & Roasters – Leek & cheddar croquettes w ham hock

The leek and cheddar croquettes were tasty. They had a crunch on the outside and were smooth and creamy on the inside. The cauliflower puree was so good and the ham hock was melt-in-your-mouth. The cavolo nero (kind of like kale) had a tangy bitter sort of taste, which was nice when eaten with the other elements. And there was a yellow stained turmeric poched egg in the middle that brought it all together.

Hash Specialty Coffee & Roasters - Banana & pecan loaf

Hash Specialty Coffee & Roasters – Banana & pecan loaf

The grilled banana and pecan loaf was insanely delicious. For some reason I thought it would be a little dense (maybe the word loaf) but I was completely wrong. It was quite sponge like and soft and fluffy. The banana peacan flavour was delicious. It was filled with white chocolate custard and topped with burnt honey mascarpone (omg!). The combination was heavenly. It had all these bits and pieces that made it even better like whole macadamias, a milk crumb and fresh blueberries. Lovely.

This is a cool space to hang out and have brunch. They have a great menu and the dishes are well executed. Not to mention the coffee and the fairy floss hot chocolate. Fairy. Floss. Hot. Chocolate. Nuff said.

I heart Hash Specialty Coffee and Roasters!

Rustica Canteen opened in the city 2 minutes away from my work huzzah! They opened in Guildford lane just this week and it is definitely something to be excited about. Similar to their Fitzroy store (Rustica Sourdough), the restaurant is part bakery part dining space. Behind the counter are shelves of fresh loaves of bread and across the front bench there is a display of delectable French pastries. It’s a beautiful open space with modern décor and delicious dining for breakfast and lunch.

Rustica Canteen – Breakfast salad w a fried egg

I had a breakfast salad because I knew I was going to spend a morning eating indulgent pastries so I though it would be good to get some greens in. This salad was delicious. It was full of flavour and had great texture. Full of super foods too. It had a combination of freekah, wild rice, kale, rocket, chai soaked raisins, toasted almonds, minted yoghurt and a fried egg on top (runny yolk of course). Amazing.

Rustica Canteen - Croissant w chilli scramble & jamon

Rustica Canteen - Cronut

Rustica Canteen – Cronut

The milo cronut was pretty special. It was shaped and fried like a donut but had the crisp buttery layers of a croissant. Then if that wasn’t enough, it was filled with chocolate milo custard and topped with cream, chocolate and a milo crisp.

Rustica Canteen - Lemon meringue tart

Rustica Canteen – Lemon meringue tart

The lemon meringue tart in this photo got a bit mangled in transit. The meringue was so delicate and soft and the on the inside it had a sweet creamy lemon curd in the centre and a crumbly shortcrust pastry base.

Rustica Canteen - Creme brulee donut

Rustica Canteen – Creme brulee donut

The creme brûlée brioche donut was delicious. It had a hard toffee top with a crème brulee filling. There was a thick layer of toffee on top but it was easy to bite into it kind of had a lolly candy kind of flavour. Then there was a creme brûlée filling inside the soft fluffy donut. Yum!

Rustica Canteen - Twice cooked Isphan croissant and choc peanut butter croissant

Rustica Canteen – Twice cooked Ispahan croissant and choc peanut butter croissant

The chocolate and peanut butter croissant was pretty amazing. It was a twice baked croissant filled with a peanut frangipane, it had chunks of dark Belgian chocolate and was topped with chocolate ganache and chopped roasted peanuts. It was delicious and not too sweet. The bitterness of the dark chocolate balanced out the sweetness. It was really good.

Rustica Canteen - Salted caramel choux bomb, Ispahan croissant & choc honeycomb brioche donut

Rustica Canteen – Salted caramel choux bomb, Ispahan croissant & choc honeycomb brioche donut

The twice baked Ispahan croissant was delicious. It was filled with rose, lychee, almond and raspberry. It had the tartness of the raspberries, the sweetness of the lychee, the traditional almond filling and a floral hum of rose in the background. It had a perfect balance of flavours, it was lovely. and very pretty too.

The salted caramel choux bomb was awesome. The choux pastry was delightfully crisp and crumbly and filled with a smooth and creamy salted caramel chantilly cream. Yum!

This restaurant is a great place for brunch and they use high quality ingredients. They have a range of delicious sandwiches for lunch and they bake their own bread so it doesn’t get fresher than that. It will satisfy the sweet toots, the bread lovers and the brunchers. Come one come all. It’s open. Yay!

Dead man espresso

Dead man espresso – Venue

If you’re on the hunt for amazing coffee in South Melbourne, dead man espresso is one of the best. They make a killer coffee and a delicious meal to go with.

Dead man espresso - Coffee

Dead man espresso – Coffee

The coffee is incredible. And the venue is located on a corner covered in wooden decking. Inside it has wooden walls and has a warm cosy cabin sort of feel which was nice considering the cold Melbourne weather at the moment.

They have a variety of dishes on the menu but you can tell by this post we were in a fried chicken kinda mood. You know it happens.

Dead man espresso - Deadman chicken burger

Dead man espresso – Deadman chicken burger

When the chicken burger came out I was like whoa! It was mammoth. I took a few seconds to contemplate on how best to eat it and then before you knew it, I had picked it up with my bare hands and devoured the gigantic thing in a matter of minutes. It was delish. I was concerned about the vegemite mayo because I thought it would overpower the dish. But no it was subtle and just added an interesting salty bitterness to the burger. The slaw was nice and crunchy and the Buttermilk fried chicken was moist and delicious. Buttermilk does wonders for chicken. And the house-made pickles were sliced thinly and placed on top of the multiple layers of fried chicken. Loved it.

Dead man espresso - Roscoes chicken & waffles

Dead man espresso – Roscoes chicken & waffles

Roscoes chicken and waffles were tasty. Good American soul food. Fried chicken! It was boneless chicken cut into pieces, which were tasty and crunchy on the outside and moist in the middle. The chunks of chicken sat on top of a soft waffle (more sort of the texture of a pancake) and drizzled with maple syrup. Together it was a great combination. My bf got a hash brown on the side, which was a big wheel of fried potato, how could you go wrong.

Dead man espresso - Orange & tonka bean doughnut

Dead man espresso – Orange & tonka bean doughnut

They had some amazing sweets sitting at the counter and I couldn’t walk away without trying one. We tried the doughnut filled with orange and tonka bean custard. Yum! Tonka bean is similar to vanilla but a little more complex. It was delicious.

Dead man espresso - Max can smell good coffee

It complimented the mushrooms well. Then there was some scattered watercress and a mushroom foam and poached egg dusted with porcini powder. It was sensational.

Industry Beans - Fried Creole chicken burger

Industry Beans - Coffee garden

Industry Beans – Coffee garden

The ‘coffee garden’ was pretty as a picture. It looked like a little garden of delciousness. It was colourful and inviting. The pistachio sponge was light and crumbly, the coffee custard pudding had that lovely unsweetened coffee bitterness, which went perfectly with the beautifully poached pear, the buttery tuille, spots of raspberry jam and the sweet chocolate soil. The cold drip coffee caviar on top was delicious, little pops of coffee.

Industry Beans - Max and the jam donut muffin

Industry Beans – Max and the jam donut muffin

They had some sweet yummies up at the counter. One of which was a jam donut muffin. We took one home and Max was immediately plotting ways on how he could get his paws on it.

Industry beans has a unique style, like an industrial space meets a veggie patch or something. It was really cute, loved the open outdoor area. The staff were super friendly which is always a plus and our meals were delish. Not to mention great coffee.

As I walked in I was already drooling over the breads behind the counter and pastries on display, they looked amazing. There were shelves of different breads, which are all made on the premises so they are as fresh as can be. Sourdough, seedy wholewheat and rye, oh my.

Rustica Sourdough - Rustica Breakfast Board

Rustica Sourdough – Rustica breakfast board

The Rustica breakfast board has a little bit of everything. You get a jar of house made granola w organic yoghurt. The granola was nice and crunchy with toasted oats and seeds and yumness topped with the organic yoghurt, which was thick and creamy. And a bottle of milk to go with. Then you get a glass of cold press juice, I chose apple, orange and beetroot, which was delish. Then there was a slice of pumpkin sourdough (OMG amazing!). It was a rustic, hearty slice of sourdough with a delicate pumpkin flavour yum. It had a poached egg on top with oozing yolk and a dollop of zesty smashed avo beside it. Everything you need to start the day. It was a really well rounded meal and a super cute idea. All the elements on the board were tasty.

Rustica Sourdough - French toast

Rustica Sourdough – French toast

The French toast was impressive. There was sweet ricotta and soft roasted figs sandwiched between two mega pieces of buttery brioche French toast. It was so soft, it was like cutting through butter. It was light and spongy and delicious. It was dressed with lemon myrtle syrup and topped with raspberry mascarpone, nuts, fresh berries and little flower petals. Very pretty.

Rustica Sourdough - Triple berry cronut

Rustica Sourdough – Triple berry cronut

Their cronuts are unreal. I’d say one of Melbourne’s best cronuts for sure. It had all the strengths of a doughnut and croissant rolled into one. It is the shape of a doughnut and fried and sprinkled with sugar like a doughnut, then it has the fluffy buttery layers of pastry like a croissant. We got the blueberry, raspberry, blackberry cronut. When we bit into it, it had the buttery layers of fried pastry with a layer of triple berry mousse inside which was absolutely divine. It was delicious! Berry delicious! ;)

Rustica Sourdough - Pumpkin Sourdough

Rustica Sourdough – Pumpkin Sourdough

I had to take home a loaf of pumpkin bread. It was fluffy and comforting, a tiny bit sweet and oh so fresh. It was the kind of pumpkin bread you only eat in dreams. Perfection!

Rustica Sourdough - Hot cross buns and the easter bunny

Rustica Sourdough – Hot cross buns and the easter frenchie

Easter bunny alert! False alarm it’s just Max. Those bunny ears fool me every time. The hot cross buns he is trying to get his paws on are baked fresh at rustica and are absolutely delicious. They have lots of fruit and a really nice flavour. I also whacked on a large helping of butter, which made it even butter, I mean better. I assume these buns are only around during the easter period so best to visit soon if you’re into buns of the hot cross variety.

I really enjoyed my experience at Rustica Sourdough. How can you beat traditional artisan hand crafted bread baked fresh? The staff is friendly, the food is delicious and the bread is top class. I just wish I lived closer so this could be my local bakery.
