Walking along this area of St Kilda Rd, you probably wouldn't expect to find this cute little cafe amongst the strip of buildings. However, Green Eggs and Ham has already made an impact with its friendly staff and excellent coffee.

The display featuring their popular wraps

What I first noticed, in seek of lunch, was that they have a great display of wraps that they'll cook fresh for you. If you dine in, they'll provide salad on the side of your wrap, whilst you can also order a cute basket of French fries for a few dollars.

Wraps include fillings such as Korean BBQ beef, sweet chilli prawns, pork belly, tandoori chicken and teriyaki tofu. They all sound so appealing, you'll find it difficult to choose with prices of less than $10. I enjoyed a Korean beef wrap (bottom right) for $9.

Our lunch break meals

You'll have a few more options to choose from if you dine in. The menu is quite succinct but my friend ordered this teriyaki tofu salad with extra chicken. They definitely didn't hold back on the beef in my wrap nor the tofu/chicken in the dish below.

Their decor is modern and simple, with dangling lights and lovely looking sugar jars and water jugs. Another great aspect is that they have a different lunch special everyday. They are usually so appetising, that you'll see most people order the same thing.

A warm special of the day

This happened to be the case when we visited again for lunch. The special was a Japanese pancake with teriyaki chicken on top for $13. Last time, my friend ordered the last soup special (above), so we were eager to order before this one ran out too!

Once again the amount of chicken was generous and the pancake provided a plainer balance to the dish's sweet sauce. My colleague advised me that another of their specials the other day, was sweet chilli prawns with rice. You usually order at the front, but the staff provided us table service on this occasion, perhaps as it wasn't too busy.

Another lunch special: okonomiyaki with teriyaki chicken

I also ordered an iced coffee ($5) and didn't know it would come out served in a beaker! This runs with a little bit of a chemical theme, with their water jugs also stating how many millilitres it can hold. It was extremely cute sprinkled with coffee beans and after a bit of a mixing in of the ice-cream, the coffee tasted perfect.

There are so many great things to say about this cute place, so excuse me for mentioning one more. They also have a great berry muffin, which they warmed up for me whilst I waited for my coffee one morning. The berries were juicy as I picked them off and the inside was soft and buttery.

Don't miss out your chance to try this cafe if you're around the area, or if you work around this end. They are definitely marketed towards the corporates as they're only open during the week and have fairly swift service for a lunch break. It will be great for any of your needs whether it's a snack, coffee or lunch!
