At Loj’s there’s an Irish/UK influence to the menu; bubble and squeak served with bacon, black pudding, fried egg and a homemade HP sauce; and perfectly thick and crisp hash browns with ham hock, poached eggs, Irish-style chutney and red-eye mayo (a coffee and Sriracha infusion).

It’s not just traditionally British, though; that’s just a starting point. The buttermilk hotcakes have lemon curd on top with vanilla yoghurt, roasted fruit and macadamia crumble. The ham hock is also mixed into a miso- and smoked-paprika-dressed salad served with crumbed, deep-fried poached eggs. Coffee is by Veneziano.

The cafe is barely bigger than an average living room but the space is homey. The design is based on a Scandinavian-style forest lodge.
