MELBOURNE | Ima Project Cafe is a Carlton cafe that’s serving up breakfasts and lunches with twists you find elsewhere in Melbourne.

The Japanese inspired cafe is owned by Japanese interior designer Asako Miura and her partner chef James Spinks (ex Supernormal, Quay, and Sake). The food menu features Australian brunch favourites with a Japanese twist, along with more traditional Japanese fare.

Throughout every aspect of the cafe, there’s a focus on sustainability, ethical produce and waste management. Produce considered too “ugly” for sale is used, and almost everything is composted or recycled.

Avocado on toast is anything but standard here, with Cobb Lane sourdough topped with nori paste, crispy kale, avocado and house made furikake. The perfectly cooked optional onsen egg is listed as an optional extra, order it. The baked eggs meanwhile, contain a umami rich red miso tomato sugo, mushrooms, and sourdough crumbs. They’re a real highlight.

Other dishes include things like a prawn katsu burger, onigiri rice balls, and a “Japanese breakfast” of market fish with miso soup, pickles and a side. Drinks include Proud Mary coffee, Mork hot chocolate, and an assortment of teas, sodas, kombucha, and Japanese inspired cocktails. Definitely not your typical Melbourne cafe.

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.
