Brunswick East’s newest café addition Bellboy officially opened its doors on Monday, 7th December after a soft opening the weekend prior. The neighbourhood venue will bring to life the East Brunswick Village development and will offer a brunch-style menu with dedicated bagel section and coffee roasted on site.
The menu will focus on taste, with brunch items created from quality produce, including house-made sourdough crumpets and flatbread. 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 will be 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, sweet corn, 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 at $6–$8.
Of course, coffee is everything in Melbourne and Bellboy will offer 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 al fresco dining with an expansive covered and heated area that locals and visitors can enjoy all year round. Being pet friendly and with plenty of bike parking, the area is ideal for cyclists and dog owners. The Bellboy kennel is sure to be a favourite with the pups!
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.
Bellboy is looking forward to serving the local community and will be a welcome addition to the Brunswick East café scene.
