Your regular cafe should offer three things: good coffee, good food and good vibes. Williamstown's Kodama Coffee has it all. Named for the Japanese tree spirits that keep nature balanced, Kodama keeps a balance of brews from Axil Coffee Roasters, plus labelled and bottled iced coffees to takeaway.
You'll also find a short but sweet food menu of vibrant dishes and a simple, relaxed cafe space complete with white walls, wooden furniture, hanging lighting and plenty of greenery. Try the huge, fluffy pancakes with syrup, fruit and meringue oar the house-toasted granola served with a whole saffron poached pear. Come lunchtime, opt for the superfood salad of kale, quinoa, roasted corn, black turtle beans, beetroot hummus, avocado and toasted almonds, topped with cold smoked salmon and a poached egg.
