Long a popular spot with locals, Truman Café is a family-friendly brunch spot hidden in the inner south of Melbourne.
Sitting unobtrusively on the corner of Montague Street and Kerferd Road, Truman is decked out with industrial trinkets and mismatched crockery and cutlery. The local feel continues with communal tables, while there’s plenty of sunny space in the courtyard.
Equally as pleasant as the surrounds is the coffee is powered by Di Bella that delivers a robust blend that almost knocked our socks off. Breakfast is a simple but satisfying affair – we recommend the sweet corn fritters served with tomato salsa and avocado, topped with coriander and a plump poached egg ($15). Also of note are the eggs benedict, served with hollandaise sauce, topped with spinach.
While it’s only a stone’s throw from the CBD, Truman serves up a nice temporary retreat from city living.
