Cafe Louis, Fitzroy

Cafes and brunches are a big part of Melbourne culture and there’s never a shortage of cafes to visit. One popped up four months ago in Fitzroy just off the busy streets of Brunswick Street. A very modest Cafe Louis on Moor street is very inviting and when you step inside, it’s so spacious that you’ll forget the hustle and bustle of the busy streets. Voted as one of the most beautiful cafes in Melbourne, you will definitely understand when you stepped inside, exactly how both Ms Curly Fries and I found out.

Ms Curly Fries got the carrot and tumeric cold press juice and yep, it was refreshing and it detoxed all of the hectic weekend partying out of her.

Carrot & Tumeric Cold Press Juice – $7.50

For those who have been following Cafe Louis for a while, you know that there’s an off the menu limited edition coffee the Mont Blanc. The Mont Blanc consists of two layers – the hot espresso at the bottom and the cold caramel creme on top. Sprinkled with mork chocolate, it was oh so delish and I literally had a foodgasm/drinkgasm/any kind of –gasm. Definitely hit this up if you come here.

Mont Blanc – $9

Ms Curly Fries had her heart set on the green chili scrambled eggs and we were super excited when it came out. It was beautiful, it was flavoursome, it was OH MY EFFING GOSH TOTES AMAZEBALLS! Spanish pesto, manchego and caramalised onions, it had everything you could want with eggs. Oh, it’s a touch spicy since…duh…it’s got chili! Definitely a recommended dish.

I’m a sucker for smoked salmon and poached eggs and when I saw it on the menu I had to get it. The smoked salmon with beetroot puree and the pea and mint ricotta smash were refreshing and delish. The grilled semolina cake was disappointing though. It needed A LOT more flavour. Overall, it was an average dish.

To end the day we got the cacao pancakes which came with mango curd and lime-coconut minted gelato. This tastes and felt healthy and we couldn’t get enough of it. The pancakes weren’t as fluffy but it did taste real good. The mango curd with the gelato was very refreshing.

Cafe Louis serves a mean green scrambled eggs and if you want something sweet but still be super healthy, definitely get the cacao pancakes. Coffee lovers, do not, I repeat, do not leave here without getting the Mont Blanc. I will definitely be back and I’ll make sure Mr D will get a taste of the Mont Blanc.
