Hawthorn has welcomed a new wining and dining destination into its fold — though, as you'll quickly see, Ate One Ate is following a very different recipe to most of its Glenferrie Road neighbours.

The brainchild of restaurateur Stephen Papagelou, this two-week-old eatery hits that casual-meets-refined formula that inner-city Melburnians go mad for. So, amid a sea of laidback cafés and budget-friendly Asian restaurants, this contemporary 180-seat venue offers a slightly upscale take on all-day dining. Its menus are best described as modern Australian, spliced with a swag of European and Mediterranean flavours.

Breakfast here might see you swapping out your usual eggs Benny for glammed-up gear like a carrot hot dog with black kale and vegan cheddar, or organic protein pancakes  with activated buckwheat. Meanwhile, the dinner menu can sort you out with freshly shucked oysters, pasta dishes Nonna would be proud of, and elegant seafood plates up until 11pm.

Over behind the stylish bar, Ate One Ate's cocktail selection is a mix of classics and signatures, and the wine list takes a brief jaunt through the more familiar regions of Europe and Australia. All the while, Studio Equator's glossy interior of marble and peach-hued banquettes will fool you, like the food, into thinking you're a whole lot closer to the CBD than you actually are.

Ate One Ate is now open for breakfast, lunch and dinner seven days a week at 818 Glenferrie Road, Hawthorn. For more info, visit
