The colourful stools were what sold me and had me there the next day. I know, very superficial of me but also the fact that it was located in Malvern was a welcome change to the far drives out to Collingwood/Carlton/wherever all the other cool brunch spots are.
We didn't understand the name behind this dish but Mr A enjoyed it. All the different textures and flavours were great together.
After seeing the words French, Chocolate & Brioche all in one sentence, I was all over it. I had previously had the Chocolate Brioche at Dukes Coffee which was excellent and sadly, The Pour Kid's version paled in comparison. The Chocolate was a rich dark chocolate which was okay however I found it too much after only a few mouthfuls even with the cream on the side and the spiced cherry confit didn't help to alievate the richness. I gave up mid way and wished I had ordered something savoury.
Overall this cafe had a nice neighbourhoodly feel. The time that we visited, it wasn't so busy (gloomy weather) but I can imagine how nice it would be during the warmer months. I don't think I'd be revisiting though, as I like to try new places and only revisit if I'm wowed.
Oh, by the way, I've decided to implement a rating system for my food blog :)
Will I return? No, too many great brunch places in Melbourne.
