One fine Saturday, Viv popped up in the hood and I was starving so a quick search through our never-ending list of places on the ‘to eat’ list later and we were on our way to 0.6 in nearby Alexandria. It’s such a pretty cafe, decked out in pastel blues, pinks and greys, with a retail wall filled with dashi tape, mugs, tea and cards for sale. This whole cafe just screams I’M INSTAGRAM FRIENDLY with heaps of natural light pouring in, vases of tiny flowers on each table and a glossy, tiled wall with their branding.
Eggs are pretty much my favourite food so I couldn’t resist getting the Scrambled eggs, mushroom & haloumi on brioche bun ($12). Look at the silly smooth eggs! I wished there were more mushrooms under there but I was happy with the slab of salty haloumi.
Next was the Duck Duck
Goose Duck ($18). Cafe 0.6 bakes their own croissants which is pretty damn amazing, they were massive behemoths, buttery and impressively flaky. The croissant is layered with slices of avocado, strips of juice roast duck, onion, coriander and classic homemade plum sauce.
The La La Land ($20) is thankfully as delicious as it looks, though a bit on the pricey side for what is essentially fruit salad with ice cream. A round of house baked mango cake is topped with two scoops of Gelato Messina’s classic coconut & lychee gelato, there’s a whole bunch of seasonal fruits on the side to feel healthy and a tiny glass of pineapple sago to pour over for an added sugar hit. But SQUEE tiny pineapples!
Oh special mention to the epic Volcano Chocolate ($5), haha this thing made our eyes bulge and brought back Ned Flanders hot cocoa flashbacks. There’s a layer of frothy meringue that’s been lightly blow torched and showered with curls of chocolate.
