Melbourne brunch review: Jake & The Beans Talk

Winner of the BEST BREAKFAST

MELBOURNE category in the Australian Good Food and Travel Guide’s Reader Choice Awards 2016

This boutique cafe is relatively new based in the Malvern suburb of Melbourne City. It is named after Jake whom also works at his own cafe. Get acquainted with the man himself in my vlog video.

His older brother asked us if we liked the food and service and I told him that Jake carried a nice persona and great vibe haha yes you did Jake.

He then went on to tell me a brief snippet of how the family decided to open the cafe. Jake had finished high school and decided Uni wasn’t for him so while he was working and learning in one of Melbourne’s most famous coffee industry, Jake and his family decided to join in on the popular brunch scene in the world’s most liveable city. Twelve months down the track, we’re here enjoying some scrumptious breakfast and smoothies!!!

Lisa had the: Moroccan “baked” eggs with chorizo sausage, smoked Napoli sauce, shaved parmesan & basil pesto (CGF) 18.9. Rating: pretty “HIGH” up there (hope you get my pun) lol


I, on the other hand had the: Fetta, thyme & scrambled egg stuffed field mushrooms with romesco, roquette & black truffle oil 17.9. Rating: if you’ve got the thyme, you’d want to drop by and try this dish ;)


If you want the lot then I suppose you could order: Jake’s Big Breakfast: poached eggs, grilled bacon, hash brown, house made bacon & egg breakfast sausage, chilli tomato relish 18.9. Rating? one simply cannot go wrong with bacon.
