Good Times Milk Bar

GOOD TIMES MILK BAR, BENTLEIGH: Good Times Milk Bar has a style that resembles that of those classic American burger bars, with crazy milk shakes and a guilty burger. Whilst the option of milkshakes and burgers is on their menu, they also have a delicious brunch option available, featuring a variety of dishes from classic English “dippy eggs”, to hotcakes, all the way to Italian pappardelle.

Dippy Eggs w. Avocado Mousse, Szechuan sauce, Crumbed bacon – $18.0

The good fat: The dippy eggs were definitely a cool concept and it was refreshing to see how interactive the meal was. The sauces were, on their own, very flavoursome – the Szechuan sauce was dotted with elements of sweet and sour, the avocado mousse was quite creamy and light, whilst the bacon crumbs were so aromatic.

Despite the uniqueness of the dippy eggs, the citrus hotcakes were more enticing. The texture was dense and moist, with the lightness of the ricotta on top permeating through each layer. The meringue crisp melted in the mouth and there was something magical about having the slight saltiness of the bacon intermingled with the fruity sweetness of the hotcakes.

Citron Hotcakes w. Poached Pear, Maple Syrup – $18

The bad fat: The dippy eggs were, as a brunch dish, a bit lacklustre. It wasn’t a cohesive dish and in a simple manner, just bread strips with dipping sauces on the side that wouldn’t really warrant its price tag. It was also a very difficult dish to eat as the bread was soft and often flimsy, so you couldn’t enjoy a combination of sauces with the dry condiments together. This would have worked better as a side or on the kids menu.


Worth checking out as there aren’t many great Melbourne brunch cafes in the area!
