HOT: Little Hugh, 150 Rooks Rd, Nunawading

Little Hugh Nunawading

Nunawading isn’t a suburb that comes to mind when you’re thinking of hip cafes – so architect-designed Little Hugh stands out from the crowd.

The cafe is long and narrow and makes the most of its small frontage with lots of lights panels in geometric shapes contrasting with rich teal accents.

There’s still room to push a pram, you can find high chairs and there is a children’s menu for the younger folk.

Little Hugh is owned by the same people behind Hutch & Co in Lilydale and so you’ll notice that the menu layout and various food items are similar.

I have the fritters stacked with pumpkin, avocado and fetta ($17). The fritters are crispy and crumbly without being dry and the crunchiness contrasts in each mouthful sandwiched between with the avo smash and pumpkin hummus.

The French toast is a single eggy slab of brioche ($16). It’s almost like a bread and butter pudding with fruit and coulis and the kids devour most of it.

The children’s menu features cereal, eggs, hotcakes nuggets and mini burgers ranging from $6-$13.

Little Hugh brings unexpected inner-city sophistication to the industrial ‘burbs, with additional family-friendly touches to make it worth a detour past the homemaker centres.
