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 is one of total relaxation, which hasn't changed since Abraham Houli took the reigns in 2015. 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 menu isn't out to push the boundaries, but handles the classics well, from smashed avo and buttermilk pancakes to eggs Benedict and zucchini, corn and haloumi fritters. If you feel like it, you can order doughnuts for breakfast – three Venetian-style frittole with chocolate ganache and double cream.
