Hide + Cheek

St Kilda’s history is scored by rock and roll, from dirty nights at The Crystal Ballroom to sunset beers at The Espy. Now Hide + Cheek brings a little bit of its own rock spirit to the suburb.

Hide + Cheek was orginally the name of co-owners Larissa and Heidi’s acoustic guitar duo. These days, Larissa is in the kitchen while Heidi runs the floor of their three week old café.

Settled on the corner of Inkerman and Market Street, the café is bright and friendly (just like the staff) and serves food produced from seasonal and organic ingredients wherever possible.

We ordered the Edith Piaf ($12), a French fruit toast with grilled banana, cinnamon sugar and cream, which when all combined melted like magic in your mouth. Next up The Glorious Standards ($8), Bacchus Marsh eggs, scrambled, on toast, with three ‘Backing Singers’ ($4 each) of Haloumi, roasted tomato and bacon. While there was only one piece of toast, the portion was a good size and the eggs were generously creamy and fluffy.

The lunch fridge displays a revolving selection of fresh made salads and cakes, while coffee is made from the award winning organic Melba coffee beans.

With a liquor license coming soon, Hide + Cheek is tuning up as the place to go for a rockin’ good eat and drink. Sounds good to us.

The Dark Crystal

Jim Henson's clever puppetry in The Dark Crystal takes us back to non-CGI filmaking and the classic plot of good versus evil.
