Milkwood

A lovely unassuming cafe tucked away in the quieter part of Brunswick East, Milkwood looks like a small cafe, seating a handful of tables. However, once directed to the back, ‘through the French Lattice’ we are greeted with a well lit urban eating space which is charming and comfortable.

The Chocolate Malted Milkshake ($5.5) is nice and chocolately without being overly malted, it’s sufficiently thickened which definitely means ice-cream was used in the creation. I would choose this one over the Iced Chocolate served with ice-cream ($5.0)

Grilled field mushrooms with confit garlic, sherry vinegar, parsley and lemon on sourdough toast with manchego cheese ($15.0) plus a side of free range bacon ($5.0) was a very tasty choice. The way they infused the mushrooms with the flavours of the garlic and parsley was great. The manchego was used quite sparingly, only shaved onto the mushrooms, but they added a nice bite each time. The thick hearty sourdough was great, spread with butter and served under the ‘shrooms to absorb the extra flavour.

The Scrambled eggs with hot smoked trout, dill and lemon, served with house-pickled beetroot on potato rosti ($19.0) were amazing. Soft fluffy scrambled eggs with trout thrown in the mix added a lot of flavour to the dish. You could taste the dill with each bite, and squeezing the lemon on top brought out the trout even more. The beetroot was quite strongly pickled, and wasn’t my favourite part of the dish.

 

TL;DR Pleasantly impressed with this small establishment
