You new city brunching hotspot
Tucked down Melbourne's Hardware Street (just across from the popular Hardware Lane), White Mojo has been a favourite of the city bruncher since its opening in 2016. Known for their 'Instagrammable' menu of quirky and colourful options, White Mojo has recently released new breakfast items that are certainly photo worthy.

The three new menu items include buttermilk strawberry pancakes, French brioche toast and a sweet & sour waffle dish. The new dishes are available at both the CBD location as well as the Balwyn sibling café.

A little bit breakfast and a little bit dessert, the dishes are certainly gorgeous and tasty too, making them absolutely perfect for weekend brunch. See the trio image pictured below. The buttermilk strawberry pancake (far right) is made more delish with the addition of strawberry crème Chantilly and topped off with a vanilla ricotta, maple syrup, lemon curd and freeze-dried fruit. Adding a bit of extra crunch, it also has a sweet white chocolate crumb.

If you can't pass up a good French toast (middle image) you'll love White Mojo's new twist on the classic fave with crystalized hazelnut, strawberry gel, fresh and freeze-dried fruit, blood orange sorbet and white chocolate crumb. Oh, and to top it off, a drizzle of salted caramel.

And for the waffle lovers (above, left), White Mojo has sorted you out as well with their unusual take, the sweet & sour waffle with Nutella frosting, lemon curd, strawberry gel, fresh and freeze-dried fruit, macerated raspberry, toasted lemon meringue, mango sorbet and a waffle cone. All served on top of a buttery waffle.

Aside from the new menu, White Mojo also serves up a pretty mean breakfast and brunch menu with their quirky twist, we also tried the old fashioned housemade granola (pictured above) served with mixed seeds and oats, maple syrup, fresh and freeze-dried fruit and it arrive looking just as photo worthy as expected and tasting pretty amazing too.

We also checked out the roasted pumpkin mash, served with dukkah, feta crumb, cherry tomato, poached egg and organic toasted bread, yep another delish dish (pictured below).

And as all Melbourne brunchers know, the coffee is vital and White Mojo certainly doesn't drop the ball there either. In fact, they are so serious about serving up great coffee, they do the roasting themselves, creating their own in-house blend, roasted in their on-site roastery, and served to patrons with tasting notes.

White Mojo has also gained attention for their wide variety of traditional coffee alternatives such as the matcha and golden turmeric lattes, blue algae lattes and their most famous (and most photographed) alternative, the black latte.

While it might look like it wouldn't take all that great, it's actually rather sweet and nutty in flavour as it's made from grinding up peanuts, almonds and black sesame seeds and blending that paste with soymilk to create this tasty charcoal drink. It's a great non-dairy option for those who are dairy free.

To check out the black latte or any of White Mojo's delicious menu items visit then at their CBD of Balwyn location.
