is Ormond's answer to trendy inner city cafes tucked away into laneways. The North Road shopping strip may not have laneways covered in artistic graffiti, but it does have a small, unassuming arcade. specialises in bagels, which, after its obscure location, is your second clue of the cafe's hipster tendencies.



Sporting a page-long menu of breakfast bagel concoctions, has twists on favourite breakfasts as well as unique dishes. You can keep it simple with a plain toasted bagel with spreads on the side, enjoy something sweet with a nutella and fruit bagel, or have a hearty breakfast with eggs any-way, served on a bagel of course. They have an open bagel menu cheekily titled 'NY in Ormond', with creations such as 'pumpkin and goat cheese smash' and 'bbq pulled pork'. If you're not a bagel fan, your choices are limited to the porridge or gourmet salads. You need a deep love of bagels to dine at .

I ordered the 'Popeye Benedict': poached eggs with spinach and ham. Guess what it was served on?



My friend ordered scrambled eggs on a bagel, which was served with mysterious relish.



We both enjoyed our delicious meals, which ticked every box and were a decent size too. The Popeye Benedict was one of the most expensive dishes on the menu at $16, while the scrambled eggs were a more affordable $9.



The d├ęcor at was impressive, with a minimalist industrial-chic look combined with a subtle arcade game theme and lush hanging plants. You can tell that every effort has been made to craft a cafe with style, from the curated menu to the chairs that look like they're from a vintage schoolroom.
