We’re from the east and we don’t often get to the North Side, but we do enjoy exploring the beaches and the cafes! A day off gave us the opportunity to head over and enjoy brunch at Little Collins, Freshwater.
About 5 minutes walk from the beach, located on the strip of shops in Freshwater, the cafe is on a corner spot, uncover but open to the breeze and daily sunlight. Stylish and casual fit out with wire chairs, hanging pendant lights and flowers for a decorative element.
Staff are friendly and hospitable, make your order at the counter and food is brought to you when ready, and it is quite efficiently.
We begin with our coffee, made using Campos beans, and had this with our healthy brekkie bar for a nice little snack while our meal was prepared. Drink wise, there’s plenty of juices and smoothies or milkshakes and kombucha.
The menu sports all day brekkie and lunch from 11am with your traditional brekkie favourites, as well as super healthy items like acai, Bircher and salads for lunch.
We order savoury dishes; the smashed avo, lemon labneh + dukkah with cherry tomatoes, and dukkah. We added mushrooms to the dish.
We also ordered the scrambled eggs with a side of kale and relish. The eggs were nice and creamy, with crispy bread. It was a great brekkie and a good option since you can choose from a range of add ons.
The food can be ordered eat in or to go, and if you’re in a rush, there’s also plenty of food ready in the window, from muffins, croissants to healthy slices and we had a few of these too.
Coffee is by campos, a mainstream favourite, and there’s also plenty of options for tea, juice or smoothies.
Food here is well priced and the cafe overall is very approachable.
