The Counter (96 Auburn Road, Hawthorn)

Ben Coffee and Kitchen (1058 Burke Road, Balwyn)

Wagyu beef burger with sea salt and rosemary fries
“Also known among my friends as “The Ben Burger”. The burger in the brioche bun is always juicy and perfectly cooked. The café has authentic chai, a vast range of coffee and a sunny little courtyard out the back – by far my most craved lunch spot in Balwyn!”
Erin Loudon, Property Consultant

Mr Hendricks (469 Whitehorse Road, Balwyn)

Prawn roll
“My favourite lunch meal is the prawn roll with celery and apple slaw on a charcoal bun. This café is great! It’s deceptively big and can fit lots of people without feeling crowded and has a delicious menu.”
Bei Cheng, Property Consultant 

Bobbi Beans (105 Bulleen Road, Balwyn North)

A Nutella doughnut & an affogato
“The coffee is of great quality and the staff offer the best service! A cosy and warm place to go on a cold day. During the warmer months I like to order Nick’s specialty – an affogato. They also have the best Nutella doughnuts in the area, and offer cakes and pastries as well!”
Rita Kara, Property Consultant

Italian doughnuts & coffee
“Their Italian doughnuts are to die for and the coffee is great! The friendly service, great atmosphere and fresh food make the cafe a definite winner.”
Helen Cameron, Personal Assistant to Jeremy Desmier

Aura Cafe Restaurant Bar (401/200 High Street, Templestowe Lower)

“Part of the Manningham Centre (so not far from Stonnington) and open for breakfast and lunch.  The coffees are the BEST! The staff are fantastic; they know your order and get it ready while you’re still saying hello. The food is delicious and the desserts are to die for!”
Mary Maatouk, Property Consultant

Baba Sus (15-17 Bardolph Street, Glen Iris)

Hong Kong egg waffles
“The food never disappoints here!”

Bar Sur Loup (115 Bulleen Road, Balwyn North)

French crepes
“I especially love the La Bretonne Crepe (melted butter with homemade salted caramel sauce). A touch of France in the suburbs!”
– Tanya Huppatz, Personal Assistant to Daiman Kane

“I love the crepes! La Pomme Et Noix is my favorite with apple slices and walnuts in it. I also love the chocolate waffle, the great coffee, the range of smoothies and the babychino for kids.”
Claire Xie, Property Consultant

The Faculty (302 Barkers Road, Hawthorn)

The potato rosti benedict for a weekend brunch
Light and airy, this is a great café for coffee, breakfast or lunch. Staff are very friendly and the food is delicious.”
