The menu at Moon88 Cafe

Located on the bustling corner of Glen Huntly Road and Carre Street in Elsternwick, this charming art cafe provides a convenient location with ample parking options available.

The decor is fun and refreshing adorned with subtle touches of whimsy, with cloud lighting, and neon artworks on the walls. The seating arrangements are comfortable and stylish, with cosy booths stacked with cushions and marble tabletops.

There is a relaxing vibe here, complemented by the presence of friendly and attentive staff, who were never far away. The dedicated chefs can be observed bustling away in the kitchen area through a service window, adding to the lively energy of the cafe.

The coffee was lovely as a flat white and matched the all-day breakfast offerings that the table chose. I particularly enjoyed my gluten-free toast topped with grilled tomatoes and avocado, beautifully presented on a creatively decorated round plate.

One of my cafe partners opted for the poke bowl, which was a burst of colour and flavour. With crispy salmon, cucumber, tomato, pickled radish, poached egg, nori, fluffy rice, corn, green bean, and sesame, each bite was a delightful combination of textures and tastes.

The table also indulged in the delicious nachos, adding a cheesy twist to our Mother's Day celebration. Though I had to avoid the cheese due to dietary requirements, the combination of tangy tomato and toasted corn chips provided a satisfying and tasty crunch.

I will definitely return for one of their signature drinks that have this enchanting smoke show for my next cafe adventure, which I spotted at several other tables.
