HOT: Saluministi, 892 Bourke St, Docklands

Saluministi, 892 Bourke St, Docklands

Saluministi is a new cafe next to Library at the Dock and across from the playground the Buluk Park. It’s turned this little corner of Victoria Harbour into our favourite place to hang out in Docklands..

The cafe is spacious, light-filled and there are high chairs for little bottoms which just reach the tall tables. When the weather warms up outside seating will be lower and face out onto the playground. If you don’t fancy sitting in there’s a big coffee window for take away.

There is no kids menu as such but if your child is ok with sandwiches then they will LOVE the Italian style panino at Saluministi.

The most popular menu item is the porchetta roll ($12) which uses slow roasted pork belly and loin seasoned with fennel seeds, thyme, rosemary and salt and pepper.

There’s also a crispy cotoletta with a vincotto mayo, Italian coleslaw and provolone ($12) and a slightly spicy pork and fennel sausage with roasted peperonata and pecorino ($11).

The ciabatta is pillowy soft and the chips with fresh herbs and reggiano are to-die-for ($5).

Finally, try the sugar encrusted bomboloni, made fresh every day. These are Italian-style doughnuts, so a bit denser than the standard American-style doughnut, but still very light.
