MELBOURNE | Proud Sprout is a newly opened cafe in Collingwood that aims to offer something a bit different than your usual breakfast and brunch fare in this part of town. Owned by husband and wife team Karishma and Waseem (ex Little Temper), who grew up in Nepal and Sri Lanka respectively, the fifty seat restaurant has a warm feeling, with white tiles, wood, and soft furnishings creating a welcoming space. We were invited to check the place out and were interested to see what was on offer.

Proud Sprout uses the flavours of Nepal and Sri Lanka to put a unique twist on modern Australian breakfast dishes, with influences from Karishma’s time spend visiting her grandparent’s farm in Nepal, and hermother’s cooking featuring prominently. We had a chat to Karishma when we visited, and it was clear that she has a real passion for what her and Waseem are doing here. One dish that’s already become a crowd favourite is the Rikshawala – spiced cauliflower, potato, fried eggs, and sujuk served with roti paratha. There’s also a Nepalese goat curry which we’ve heard good things about. We tried the Rikshawala and loved the dish – the spiced cauliflower had a beautiful, mild flavour which contrasted with the spicy kick of the sujuk. The roti also impressed us – it was flavoursome and not at all heavy or greasy.

Another dish we tried was the Wild Porridge, a vanilla and chai porridge topped with poached rhubarb, raspberry coulis, and granola crumbs. Coconut instead of cow’s milk is used, which makes the porridge lighter than might otherwise be expected, and all of the flavours come together nicely, each subtly adding something to the equation.

The drinks menu contains an impressive range of options, with a number of coffee-based beverages, brewed using Padre coffee beans, sharing the menu with juices, smoothies and an assortment of lattes. The matcha latte is light and unsweetened, just the way we like it, and the Cha Cha Matcha smoothie, with matcha, turmeric, avocado, spinach, lemon, coconut milk and agave, is equally delicious and again, not too sweet.

The name Proud Sprout comes from the adage that ‘every sprout has its own unique journey’, and we have no hesitation in recommending you make the journey here sometime.
