For those in need of a relaxing getaway from the hustle and bustle of the Camberwell Sunday Markets, Georges is the place to be. With plenty of space and easy access on Bourke Road, Georges caters for all groups. It easily can be the perfect space for a family gathering or a catch up with friends. The cafe offers a wide range of smoothie and coffee options. There are also plenty of old favorites and original breakfast choices. Try their ‘Upstream,’ a delicious medley of scrambled eggs, smoked salmon and smashed avocado on toast. Alternatively, the brioche brekky roll with egg, bacon, cheese, caramelized onion and BBQ sauce will hit the spot.
Though small on the inside, Prospect Espresso packs a punch with its take on classic breakfast fare. The stand out and most popular dish is their house-made rosti with smoked salmon, poached eggs, pickled beetroot and horseradish crème fraîche. Other delights include their warm coconut rice with pomegranate and lime air and panko-crumbed eggs with spiced beans, goat’s cheese and chorizo. If you’re looking for something different than the run-of-the-mill avocado on toast, Prospect Espresso has you covered.
