MELBOURNE | Cafe Amba is located on bustling Chapel Street in South Yarra’s shopping precinct and have recently launched a new winter menu which The City Lane was invited to try. The light timber interior is fitted out with hanging greenery, exposed brick and statement metallic gold lighting, giving Cafe Amba a warm, welcoming atmosphere. There is also a heated courtyard for those who prefer their brunch al fresco.

Cafe Amba offers a range of comforting and traditional winter dishes, perfect for cold Melbourne mornings. Whilst the all day breakfast menu is simple, it provides something for everyone, from Five Grain Porridge with raisins, roasted almonds and rhubarb to the Breakfast Burger, a toasted brioche bun filled with bacon, fried egg, rocket, tomato, cheddar, tomato relish and hash brown. If lunch is more your thing, there are also a selection of homemade soups, salads and pastas to choose from.

The first dish we went for was the smashed avocado on toast, one of my favourite combinations! Cafe Amba give this dish a unique twist through the addition of grape tomato, toasted sesame seeds and marinated goat’s cheese, with a side of lemon to squeeze over the top. The smashed avocado was clearly made using quality ingredients. Healthy, full of flavour, and a bit different that the ususual smashed avocado on toast, I would definitely recommend this.

From the specials menu we chose the Fisherman’s Risotto, made up of sautéed Arborio rice with tiger prawns, calamari, onion, broccoli, tomato, chives and a touch of garlic chilli in red pepper sauce topped with a grilled salmon fillet. This dish was extremely tasty and satisfying, as well as beautifully colourful. The combination of flavours and textures in this fresh dish complimented each other perfectly.

Cafe Amba has a friendly ambiance, specialty coffee and deliciously wholesome food, making it the perfect brunch spot on Chapel Street. And if you aren’t completely satisfied after your meal, Cafe Amba offers a range of decadent sweet treats at the counter. This cafe provides everyone’s favourite brunch classics with a twist; I would highly recommend heading over to brighten up your weekend.
