Those looking to embrace vegan and vegetarian options alongside classic café fare, head to new kid on the Eltham dining scene, Earthbound Bolton. Take a stroll along Bolton Street to find this rustic eatery with reclaimed timber, a blackboard heralding the day's specials and cabinets overflowing with treats to take home, setting the scene for memorable dining. A cool library concept means guests can indulge in a little reading while sipping a Wild Timor latte and enjoying all-day breakfasts like smashed peas, rosti, radish, jalapeno and corn fritters, hollandaise and poached eggs.
