the glass den 2

porridge

After arriving home from Europe, I caught up for brunch at the Glass Den with my friend who had been housesitting while I was away.

I chose the Glass Den because I love it and it caters to both vegans and non-vegans alike.

The food is modern, delicious, beautiful to look at and a cut way above your average cafe.

I chose a vegan “chicken” burger and my friend had the porridge. Both were great. The porridge was so beautifully decorated with fruits and flowers. The burger was enormous and I foolishly fell for the “Would you like fries with that?” up sell and ordered the sweet potato fries which were excellent. The tomato relish on the burger was swoon worthy.

I’ve also included a photo of a breakfast udon noodle dish that I ate on another visit that I didn’t blog about. It gives you an idea of the range of creative food that they do. Udon noodles with kale and crumbed mushrooms. For breakfast. Delicious.

The coffee is great too.

I really cannot fault the Glass Den, it remains high on my list of favourite places. I have never had a disappointing meal.

  1. I think I saw you with this chicken burger – love Glass Den too – I go there too often for coffees and see food I wish I was staying to eat – that porridge just beautiful and it is interesting they seem to only have sweet potato fries now rather than regular potato fries. Your food on holiday looks magnificent so it is nice you could come home and feel good about the food on offer in Melbourne

  2. I went to have a burger but forgot I was there too early for the lunch menu so I ordered the tiramisu pancakes again. That burger does look wonderful, I was really surprised by the mushroom burger on the previous menu because it was so good (and I always find mushroom burgers a bit lacking).

  3. Yes! I’ve been to the Glass Den twice now, once having the breakfast soba (with a side of almond feta, just cos) – such a fan of those crumbed mushrooms! And more recently I went and convinced my boyfriend to split two plates – we had the chicken burger with a dessert of the tiramisu hotcakes. So good! The service was really great too.
