The number of coffee shops and cafes in Australia is unfathomable, and the competition between them is fierce. The standard is by and large superb – few countries take their morning brew as seriously as the average Aussie – and if you’re in Bentleigh, then your local joe dealer is Mama G’s Kitchen on Centre Road. They take in the finest of hot beverages – organic coffee, smoothies, milkshakes and fresh juices – and Australian cafe classics, so let us talk you through a few of the specialities you will encounter. Breakfast treats include eggs done three ways, shakshouka, porridge or French toast, whereas the myriad lunch options such as risotto, paella, sandwiches and salads, as well as plenty of burgers – your choice of proteins and toppings – so head on over to Bentleigh train station and Mama G’s Kitchen for a cafe to remember in Melbourne. Do book ahead, however, as they will get full up on occasion.
