Remember when you were in high school? You had that friend who lived in a different suburb, they had a bit more money and their house was pretty nice? Do you also remember how nice the parents were and how great the outdoor area was? Miss Jackson is the cafe equivalent of this friend's house. Only it's in St. Kilda and looks even better on a sunny, sunny day.
As soon as I walk in I am greeted by several people by the counter. I take a seat and within a minute a young lady comes over with a menu. I order a coffee and take a look at the menu. I find myself with a great list of delicious food suggestions.
Today being an amazing sunny day, Miss Jackson was filled with light and warmth. The floorboards. The white walls. A very nice space that reminds me a bit of Porgie & Mr. Jones...except better.
The sounds and vibe that fill this place is just what you need and hope for on a Sunday afternoon in St. Kilda, let alone anywhere. In a way, you feel as if the Sunday moment that you are in could go on forever, that time will slow down for you while you enjoy your stay.
Double Espresso. Allpress. Speckled and cocoa-like crema with an interesting colour. The body has chocolate undertones with what seems to be a liquor-like freshness.
Polenta Chips Accompanied with a dipping sauce, these crispy chips were on the yes side of fantastically tasty. This is a light snack I'd recommend for anyone. Not too oily nor too dry. All the other meals looked great and I'd like to come back here soon to try the other tasty treats out.
