The Boy Who Cried Wolf

7:00am - 4:00pm
3 Newton Street Cremorne 3121

You’ll find The Boy Who Cried Wolf hiding in the back corner of an industrial courtyard. The lofty former warehouse space has exposed brick features, wooden floors and blue accents – but it’s the unusual menu that’s the biggest drawcard.

Owners Alan Ng, from Hong Kong, and Eugene Ye, from China, have years of hospitality experience. Together they maintain a pan-Asian repertoire of curries, laksas and noodle dishes. The ubiquitous smashed avo is also available, alongside comforting meatball sliders and tortilla parcels stuffed with mixed mushrooms, bacon and Swiss cheese.

As the two are also trained baristas, it should come as no surprise that coffee is taken pretty seriously here. The duo prefers a house blend with nutty-caramel notes in milky coffees and Monk Bodhi Dharma single-origin beans for black coffees.

The queue grows quickly and the pressure rarely lets up, but Ng and Ye always find time for a friendly exchange with their customers. Grab a seat to fully immerse yourself into a housemade sweet treat, or choose from the baked goods supplied by Noisette. Friday is doughnut day.
