Servery and Spoon
Discovering this little gem out in the ‘burbs is like discovering a fiddy in the breast pocket of your favourite jacket: you wonder just how long it'd been hiding there as you drove right on by day after day, keeping your eyes on the inner-city prize.
Although it’s nothing we haven’t seen before – cute decor with imbedded homeliness, the expected sprinkling of random inclusions and good coffee – it’s the location that allows this treasure to stand alone.
The restored family abode caters for breakfast, lunch and afternoon tea, providing light to hearty meals, from gourmet salad rolls to traditional Italian fungi pasta, along with a selection of cakes and gluten-free options.
Next door, Spoon and Servery acts as a deli and foodstore, allowing you to pop over on your way to a local dinner party as the take-away kitchen offers pies, patties, salads and even a plate to put it on. Exotic treats and gifts can also be found, from petite travel guides to Persian fairy floss.
Servery & Spoon caters for your typical suburban Melburnian range as lunching ladies, their preppy offspring and young students come together to enjoy the, albeit far from the standard inner-suburban, neighbourhood vibe.
