• Left Field (Carnegie)

Years on, and people are still queuing at this Carnegie café. Why? Well, the food is good. Darn good in fact. And as prerequisite for us fussy Melbournians, the coffee is excellent too.

Left Field is set just beyond the busy strip of Koornang Road. The interior is bright, clean and somewhat noisy. The guests are foodies and know when they are onto something good.

What do I love most about the menu here? There are so many vegetarian options, and all of them are creative, filling and wholesome. Too often as vegetarians we are restricted to limited or bland choices of savoury breakfasts. Here you can choose between cauliflower with pumpkin hummus, dukkah and poached eggs; asparagus with beans, Brussel sprouts on quinoa toast with beetroot tahini; smashed peas and goats’ cheese; mushrooms with whipped goats’ cheese; roasted pumpkin with all the trimmings; sweet filled doughnuts… the list goes on. Each dish has enough ingredients to excite the palate and make you appreciate that you would not cook this at home.

Check out the photos, they say it all.
