This corner cafe in a heritage-listed building has Aperol spritzes and cookies 'n' cream hotcakes.
Armadale cafe Moby 3143 now has an Albert Park sister venue — and though Lenny 3206 opened back in June, it's just nabbed a liquor license ad new menu for the start of summer.
The bright, heritage-listed corner cafe has beachy vibes with pastel hues and an airy fit-out. Moby's executive chef Stephen Svensen (Pillar of Salt) has designed Lenny's new spring brunch menu, which spans from healthier options — like the mandarin juice-soaked bircher ($18) with stone fruit and toasted almonds — to the rather rich sounding cookies 'n' cream ricotta hotcakes ($21), which come topped with a white chocolate glaze, peach gel and vanilla ice cream.
Other newcomers include a house-cured salmon omelette ($21) with crispy capers, green pesto and whipped lemon ricotta; a green poke bowl ($21) with broccoli and avocado, wasabi peas and edamame on a bed of wakame salad and brown sushi rice; and a falafel plate ($19) with spicy hummus, beetroot labneh, cucumber gel and a quinoa and zucchini salad.
Signature dishes haven't lost their place on the menu either, with the superfood salad ($19), chilli scrambled eggs ($21.5) and cafe-requisite smashed avo on toast ($19) still on offer. But now you can enjoy these with an Aperol spritz or glass of wine in hand — as brunch is meant to be enjoyed.
