When down Gembrook way, head to Hairy Dog Café on Main Street for fare with flair and a good dose of Kiwi humour. Perhaps the hairy dog himself – aka Craig – will be front of house to take your order in this light, bright and airy venue; where a rustic red brick façade welcomes guests to linger alfresco over Merlo coffee and a brunch bite. Indoors, drop pendents add a cheery glow to distressed wood tables and café counter as a lively buzz of conversation fills the air and aromas of banana bread and bacon waft from the kitchen. Perhaps tuck into grilled potato with chorizo, kale, poached egg and lemon oil, or delve into slow-cooked pork belly, in sticky caramel sauce with Vietnamese salad and steamed rice. Grab a gluten-free treat like a chocolate brownie from the cabinet on the way out.
