Bellboy cafe

Brunswick East’s newest café addition Bellboy has opened and brings to life the East Brunswick Village development, offering a brunch style menu with dedicated bagel section and coffee roasted on site.

The menu focuses on taste with brunch items created from quality produce, including house-made sourdough crumpets and flat bread.

The bagel section provides a tasty break from the Instagram café dish norm with delicious fillings ideal for breakfast, brunch, lunch or a mid-afternoon feed. Supplied by Savion and available in plain or sesame, the bagels are great for both eat in and take away.

Menu highlights include Muffuletta Bagel $15 (with ham, salami, mortadella, provolone, red pepper, olive salad and mustard), Eggs Cacio e Pepe $17 (soft scrambled eggs, pecorino, guanciale and zucchini pickle on seeded sourdough) and Chop Chop Salad $17 (wild rice, seasonal greens, avocado, tomato, beetroot, sweetcorn, house pickles, soft boiled egg, everything bagel seasoning and buttermilk ranch dressing, with the option to add chicken, haloumi or salmon). Contactless ordering and payment is available.

Kids are well catered for with a menu including Chia Pudding & Berries, Scrambled Egg & Toast, Ham & Cheese Melt and Waffle Soldiers & Maple, priced $6-8.

Of course, coffee is everything in Melbourne and Bellboy offers coffee roasted on site by former Golden Bean winner Mark Leo. The café’s ‘Penthouse’ blend is called Ding Ding and the filter blend is called Wake Up Call.

Alternative drinks available include tea, milkshakes, smoothies, non-alcoholic spritzers and free flowing sparkling water, as well as a selection of cocktails (alcoholic), wines and beers.

In addition to a beautiful interior, Bellboy is perfectly set up for alfresco dining with an expansive covered and heated area that locals and visitors can enjoy all year round.

The outdoor area is pet friendly and the custom Bellboy ‘Check-In’ kennel made in Melbourne by Frank & Friends Design and pooch menu of treats by Bender and Friends has proved a hit with the pups! Houndsome Dog ceramic bowls that are handmade in Victoria add to the five-star doggie treatment.

The small retail section of Bellboy will offer items such as ‘Everything Seasoning’ for bagels and more, coffee scented candles, Cold Brew home kit and coffee beans.

The café was designed by ODO (One Design Office), who are behind many of Melbourne’s hospitality venues, including Jamu in Richmond.

There’s plenty of bike parking and free on-site parking for cars, or guests can take the 96 Tram.

The local community has embraced Bellboy since opening and the café is a welcome addition to the Brunswick East café scene.
