Catching up with friends from Perth was the perfect opportunity to explore an eatery I had not been to before.
My Other Brother is owned and run by Julien, with the help of his partner Kristy-Lee (pictured above). Julien grew up exposed to the restaurant business from a very young age (his parents own Medici Bar and Ristorante in Docklands), so it's no surprise that having an eatery of his own is as natural to him as the air he breathes.
Not only is M.O.B. his brain child born in 2013, he also owns Collective Espresso in Camberwell. Guess I might be heading over there to check that out too.
The cuisine is a mixture of modern Australian and a tasty touch of the Middle East. The coffee is a stronger blend than your normal milky latte, but it is full bodied and delicious.
Breakfast is served all day. There's toast, bircher muesli, mango buttermilk pancakes, Middle Eastern baked eggs,and white truffle and feta scrambled eggs to name a few. Then there's lunch, with a few more interesting meals on the menu.
There are juices, milkshakes, organic soft drinks, espresso, tea, filter coffee, beer, cider, sparkling, white and red wine and spirits.
The price range for breakfast meals are on average between $14 and $19 and lunches from $17 to $22.50 with some meals like the McBrother and toasts with preserves going for under $10.
M.O.B. faces the Camberwell carpark and can be got to from Burke Road, via a lane beside an OPSM store.
M.O.B. is located right behind the OPSM store on Burke Road and can be got to through a laneway beside the OPSM store, should you happen to be parked on Burke Road. The front entry faces The Camberwell Market carpark where parking is also available.
M.O.B. is fully licensed and available for private functions. They're open from 7.30 am to 5pm Monday to Friday, 8am to 5pm Saturday and 7am to 4pm Sunday. They do not 'split bills' and have a $1 EFT surcharge for any transaction under $15.
