We have recently discovered how wonderful the Yarraville Village is. There’s so much to explore and do, while there we decided to visit Cobb Lane. It was a great spot, small but homely and with friendly and accomodating staff.
We got there early to ensure we got a table, starring with coffees while waiting for the rest of our party to get there. It was definitely good we got there early, Cobb Lane got busy fast and their small amount of tables were soon full.
Cobb Lane serve a Dukes espresso blend, so it’s really not surprising that it was delicious. Rich and fill flavoured with a lovely mouthfeel and a light acidity, it was exactly how we wanted to start the day.
We’re really fond of fish for breakfast and we’re delighted to find a Grilled Mackeral on the menu at Cobb Lane. It came with rhubarb, ginger, horseradish creme fraiche and a slow cooked egg. It was a fresh dish, with plenty of flavour and creamy, without becoming overpowering. As you’d expect from a bakery, the bread was absolutely perfect. This was the best fish dish we’ve had for breakfast in a very long time, it was a definite winner!
Our second dish was the Gypsy toast, another, more bohemian name for French toast. It was served with a raspberry mascarpone, plums and a nut crumble. This French toast had such an amazing mouthfeel, the texture of the crumble, the light sugar and flakiness on the toast were heavenly. We loved the creaminess of the mascarpone and the sweetness of the raspberry. It was an absolutely stunning dish, the flavours and size were just perfect for a breakfast delight.
We adored the wonderful little Cobb Lane, and loaded up on some sweets to take home. The standouts were a light the loaf, as well as donuts made in house!
