129 McKinnon Road, McKinnon
Situated on McKinnon Road, Mr Burch is a hit with the locals. Kid-friendly, this local family café is quirky and unique, offering great value for money in a relaxed atmosphere.
The menu is clever and gluten-free diners are well catered for. I enjoyed an amaranth pikelet with lashings of goats cheese, tomato, two perfectly cooked poached eggs and delicious spears of asparagus; the presentation was very pretty.
My friend enjoyed a classic breakfast combo of poached eggs, bacon, toast and spinach. Classics are what Mr Burch does well and although the menu has clever daily specials like tagliatelle capricciosa, the menu favourites like steak sandwiches, the Mr Burch burger and bircher museli are what keep locals coming back for more.
Yummy treats are displayed at the front counter and are happily devoured by lots of happy families. The coffee is great too.
Overall the the quirky decor adds to the feeling of community support for Mr Burch, where the work of local artists is featured and works fantastically as a backdrop to the classic menu.
