MELBOURNE | Named after (or so the story goes) the the first shopkeeper in Coburg, George Jones Eatery has brought a slice of inner city Melbourne to Pascoe Vale. Owner Paul Vernuccio, who also owns Richmond’s Cheeky Monkey, has built a space that caters well to the area’s clientele. It’s light filled and spacious with ample room for families and large groups. The City Lane was invited to sample some the food at George Jones Eatery and didn’t pay on this occasion.

There’s a lot to like on the menu and arriving post 11:30am gives you a choice between items from the breakfast and lunch menu. It’s food that focuses on simple ingredients with flair. Servings are generous, with the “Breakfast Bowl” – mango, almond and coconut milk soaked chia, kiwi and buckwheat crumble a real winner. The salmon is also very tasty and perfectly cooked, with perfectly poached eggs and tasty croquettes. The pasta (orichiette) with broccolini is one of the dishes that doesn’t quite work. The flavours are all there, but the proportions on the day we visited were off – a bit of tweaking and it’ll be great.

Coffee is roasted in house, with espresso drinks being made using the ever reliable La Marzocco machine. The house blend is mild and inoffensive – probably the right move for the area but purists might want to go for the single origin instead which has more bite.

Come dinner time the menu switches over to include a larger selection of more substantial offerings beyond what’s on the lunch menu. The drinks list includes local and international wines and beers along with a few cocktails and the usual array of non-alcoholic drinks.

George Jones Eatery is a great addition to this part of town, bringing the kind of dining that’s usually reserved for the inner city out to the suburbs, with enough tweaks to make it fit in.

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.
