Wee Jeanie was founded by friendly Scotsman Iain Munro, who started many of the cafes in Seddon and Yarraville. Named after lollie-loving wee Jeanie of a popular Scottish song (whose image adorns the menus), the cafe is abuzz with the chatter of friends and families.
The vibe of Wee Jeanie is one of laidback cool and total relaxation, which hasn't changed since Abraham Houli took the reigns in 2015.
Fitting with the theme, the mood and food reflect the comfortable aesthetic. An exposed brick wall houses a cosy fireplace, and a large communal table rests in the small outside courtyard.
The cuisine is homely and homemade, and features a variety of salads, soups, quiches and sweeter treats. A specialty of the house is the Welsh rarebit, a ploughman’s lunch-like favourite made with cheddar cheese, Guinness, cayenne pepper, mustard and Worcestershire sauce (Lea & Perrins preferred). Jeanie would be proud.
