Eggholic Sweet, Melbourne CBD

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.

Paul founded The City Lane back in 2009 as a place to share photos of his travels around Europe with friends and family. The City Lane might have changed quite a lot since those early days but one thing that’s remained constant is Paul’s passion for food, travel and culture, and a desire to photograph and write about his experiences. Paul has a strong inquisitive nature that drives him to look beneath the surface in order to discover what really makes a city and its people tick, and what better way to do this than over a good meal or drink, with a city’s locals, at places that people who live in that city actually frequent. Paul is also a co-host of The Brunswick Beer Collective, a podcast that may or may not actually be about beer.
