MELBOURNE | Eggholic Sweet is the new Korean night cafe from the team behind K-sandwich joint Eggholic. It’s just around the corner from their Spencer Street location, and offers an assortment of sweet (but not overly so) Korean treats centred around traditional and novel cafe twists on the shaved ice dessert, bingsu. They’ve also got an assortment of fruit and coffee lattes, and a few other desserts to round things off.
I visited on behalf of What’s on Melbourne recently, to check it out. I highly recommend the tiramisu bingsu, which turns the Italian favourite into a Korean shaved ice treat, to great effect. The Dalonga latte is the bomb too.
If it’s something savoury you’re after, the location also doubles as the first permanent outpost of Korean hot dog specialists, Seoul Station. Think loaded corn dogs and a variety of flavours.
Speaking to one of the owners, it’s great to see the team finally be able to open the café. They’ve been through a lot with COVID lockdowns, construction delays around the centre and hotel behind, and have even had issues with getting their street signage approved on a timely basis. It’s easy to miss that Eggholic Sweet is there, when you’re walking down Spencer Street, but if you seek it out, you’ll be rewarded with some very tasty treats.
