Spilt Milk Cafe

Don't cry, just eat
Spilt Milk is a trendy little Carnegie cafe with surprisingly cheap, delicious food.

Two lunch dishes and two drinks came out to just $30 in total; not bad when you consider the pricing of local competitors. Their hearty meals are all around $11 to $13, when they could easily raise the prices by $5 or so per meal. Each dish has a quirky animal-themed name, which does not always coincide with the type of meat- or so I hope, with names like "monkey" and "zebra".

Lunch for two under $30? Yes please.


I ordered the "rhino", which comprised of sumptuous chopped baked potatoes topped with shredded chicken, corn, sour cream and avocado, with a few sliced cherry tomatoes thrown in. This delicious dish was filling and fresh tasting; the perfect bread-free brunch dish.

The "Rhino


My friend ordered the "toucan", a simple dish consisting of tomato, avocado and Bocconcini cheese atop two slices of rye bread. A lighter option than the baked potato dish, the "toucan" is a refreshing choice for any time of day.

The cafe is tiny, with only a smattering of small tables inside, as well as some seating available outside by the footpath. Despite its diminutive size, Spilt Milk has fantastic atmosphere for a leisurely daytime meal or snack.

Split Milk is set in busy surrounds just off the main Koornang Road shopping strip. A range of quirky shops are nearby, including op-shops, small clothing shops, and Little Shop of Handmade.
