Naked brew in Erskinville is just across from Erko oval, a place that conjures up memories of playing football over a rock hard cricket pitch in the centre of the oval. The place has changed alot over the years. Thankfully, Naked Brew is way softer than my memories of the oval. This dog friendly cafe with outdoor seating and clean modern interior is very inviting.
There was a range of interesting menu options and they serve coffee from one of our favourite coffee roasters, Five Senses, who are based in Melbourne. The latte was good, as was expected with that brew and their latte art is on point. If popping in on a hot day like we did, the iced coffee is a great option, the iced coffee with ice cream will encourage some drink envy from your brunch companion.
What, spag bowl for breakfast? Absolutely! The bolognese on top of sour dough with a perfectly poached egg on top is great if you are super hungry. A thick cut piece of super fresh sourdough soaking up that saucy goodness, a mountain of pasta, pierce the egg and have the yolk cascade down.
Something healthy as a counter was the goodness bowl. Presented with plenty of colour and a decent portion size. This dish will provide you with the nourishment you probably now need. Loaded with plenty of healthy veg including; kale, corn purple cauliflower carrot, sprouts, chickpead, throw in some avo, tomato and a poached egg on top.
Apple crumble brioche toast, waffles and chicken, soft shell crab or black pudding. If you want to try something interesting, this is the place for it.For the dog owners out there, you can take your pup and they sell puppy treats, biscuits and donuts, smoothies and frothocinos! They are certainly well looked after.
A trendy little dog friendly cafe in the leafy part of Erskineville. Great coffee and an interesting menu, we will return to sample more of the menu.
