This Carlton North spot is a culinary chameleon, shape-shifting as the crowds wax and wane. As evening falls, Green Park’s long wooden counter lights up as it morphs to an intimate Mediterranean-influenced den. In the day, it’s open for early coffees and kicking back with colorful brunches that stretch long into the afternoon. Despite grown-up interiors, awash with Hooker’s green and timber frames, it’s great for children. Ham and cheese toasties without crusts are the highlight of the kids’ menu. Parents can opt for more sophistication: scrambled tofu and kale, washed down with Small Batch coffee, while their brood explores the playground opposite.
