HOT: Matcha Mylkbar, 72A Acland St (Corner Carlisle St), St Kilda

Matcha Mylkbar

If you’re struggling to get your kids to eat their greens, then make healthy food fun at Matcha Mylkbar!

Matcha Mylkbar is a popular vegetarian and vegan cafe in St Kilda by the folks behind tea label Matcha Maiden. Despite heavy competition from all the other Acland Street and Fitzroy Street eateries it is one of the most popular places for weekend brunch, with queues snaking out the door.

It’s easy to see why. The swanky space makes healthy eats that are tasty, nutritious and so pretty that they dominate Instagram #melbournebreakfast.

Even Lady AB says of the Loma Linda ‘Longevity’ bowl ($19) ‘these lentils are surprisingly delicious’ not to mention the spiced pineapple salsa, smashed avocado, coconut rice.

That’s along with our latte flight of beetroot, turmeric, cocoa and apple pie in miniature skull glasses ($12) and huge bowl of crunchy sweet potato fries with almond butter ($7).

The crowd at Matcha Mylkbar is young, very fit and fake-tanned (I feel out of place being over 30 and not wearing activewear) but there are touches that make it welcoming for kids.

Colouring sheets and pencils are provided as a matter of course and in the corner there’s a small stack of books and toys. However note the cafe is not really suitable for under 3s as there are no high chairs and not a lot of room for prams as the tables are packed quite close together.

Matcha Mylkbar is a fun and hip hangout for the health conscious, clean-eating brigade. And if you’re taking kids, they won’t even know the food is good for them!

HOT Tips:

  • Limited pram access;
  • Standard menu suitable for kids;
  • Toys, colouring-in;
  • Paid parking;
  • no bookings; and
  • Short walk to St Kilda Beach.
