Nestled away from Hawthorn's hustle and bustle is new addition to the suburb's coffee culture, Shanklin café on Tooronga Road. Dine inside this heritage listed ornate building or take a seat alfresco, where an oasis of a green, leafy courtyard – complete with retractable roof – beckons those who long for a leisurely sip on a brew and a taste of Mod Oz fare with flair. Enjoy the fresh, clean flavours of dishes such as chunky avocado on sourdough with goats cheese, pistachio dukkah, pepitas and beetroot hummus, or salivate over smoked salmon on a crispy potato rosh topped with poached eggs, asparagus and housemade hollandaise. Those stopping by later in the day may be tempted by options such as crispy, soft shell crab linguine with zucchini ribbons, cherry tomatoes, chilli, lemon and garlic.
