If you find yourself in need of a café in Hawthorn head straight to Chaplain’s Office. The friendly café is as comforting as grandma’s knitted jumper while still putting up a menu modern enough to entice the smashed avo crowd.
Housed in a converted late 1800s church hall (hence the name), the café's food and service both lean towards the heavenly. If you’re looking for brunch you found it: highlights include golden halloumi sandwiches, ocean trout bagels and pork belly with fried eggs and sambal. If you like your brunch sweet, throw your diet out the door and order the black forest hotcakes – ricotta hotcakes with chocolate ganache, berry parfait and cassis cream.More
Since 2001, Okra has blossomed from a local Camberwell gem to one of the greater Melbourne area’s premier dining destinations.
Okra blends Thai, Malaysian, and Indonesian dishes into an irresistible Southeast Asian fusion menu with something for everyone. Every dish is expertly hand-prepared by head chef Michael Tiu, and while our recipes may span a continent away, our ingredients are sourced locally to guarantee fresh, crisp flavor in every dish.
Dishes are generously portioned to allow them to be shared, and can be paired with our delicious house steamed rice. Every dish is balanced and varied in flavour, texture, and aroma to help create an unforgettable and unique dining experience.
Okra has been featured in The Age Good Food Guide every year since its inception, and continues to garner more press and critical accolades each year. We’re been profiled and featured in such publications as Lifestyle Food, AGFG, and Gault & Millau.More
