MELBOURNE | Mr & Mrs Anderson is a small cafe in Hawthorn East that’s been recently renovated, transforming from a traditional cafe with a focus on Greek food into to a more modern venue. Owners James Limneos (Black Squirrel) and Roulla Saisanas have brought in head chef Lasse Povlsen (Andrew McConnell Group, Circa the Prince, Attica, Three Bags Full), who has helped update the menu to one that’s focused on a greater variety of dishes using, where possible, ingredients sourced from local producers. A lot of produce comes from Mrs & Mrs Anderson’s own farm in Gippsland, while bread is from Woodfrog Bakery and pastries from Penny For Pound. Jams and relishes are made on site, and herbs are grown in a garden out back.

The cafe features a bright, airy design, with large floor to ceiling windows making the most of any available sunlight. White Mexican tiles and simple tables and chairs complete the welcoming space, which is popular with locals and students and parents of the school across the road.

The farm to table menu features a range of simple dishes, along with more complex dishes influenced by Melbourne cafe favourites and Povlsen’s Danish and French training. The most popular breakfast item is the undeniably pretty and heavily Instagrammed caramelised white chocolate brioche with crystallised white chocolate, white chocolate matcha truffles, raspberry coulis and sorbet, fresh berries and candied walnuts. When we visited, we opted for the less visually stunning, but very tasty Mexican inspired chilli scrambled eggs. A slice of sourdough is topped with a generous serving of scrambled eggs, black beans, salsa, and enough fresh chilies to give the dish a real kick.

For lunch, it’s the soft shell crab burger, with a brioche bun, fennel and cabbage kimchi, miso kewpie mayo and prawn crackers that’s most popular, and we were impressed by the light and healthy cold pasta with cherry tomatoes, mint, pumpkin, roasted pumpkin seeds, and snow peas, which we ordered to take away and enjoy later in the day.

Coffee beans are roasted by Axil Coffee, and the house blend provides a good base for the usual range of espresso based drinks. The espresso, served properly with a small glass of sparkling water on the side, is bang on. If you want something other than coffee, a range of shakes and juices are also available.
