Time Out says

Head here for Japanese pastries, healthful breakfast bowls and well roasted coffee

The kitchen at this spacious Brunswick warehouse café is headed up by former Matcha Mylkbar chef Lachlan Timms, who's combining very Instagram-able aesthetics with Japanese and Korean flavours. Order up taiyaki (that's a fish-shaped pastry stuffed with maple pear custard), soft shell crab okonomiyaki, brisket benedict, bibimbap, and Korean fried chicken. The menu also has a dinner-style selection of small plates and sides, ranging from a double serve of bacon to nasu dengaku. The café has a focus on sustainability and giving back, with half-price coffees for emergency service workers on duty and in uniform; solar power installed; Who Give A Crap products on site; and Huskee Cups (recycled and environmentally friendly cups made from coffee husks). Plus there's an in-house herb garden.
