SO PRETTY!

Kitty Burns in Abbotsford is a cafe that features one of the nicest interiors that I have ever seen from all Melbourne breakfast spots! With light timber walls, high white ceilings, chic ceiling lights dangling from dainty wires, and the cutest cabin-like booths on the side! The natural lighting that streams through each morning just motivates you to have a beautiful start to your day! It features a versatile range of breakfast dishes and if you’re ever here, make sure you don’t pass up on one of their delectable smoothies!

The good fat: We started our day off with Kitty Burns’ raw vegan, dairy free smoothies – opting for the tiramisu and banana salted caramel! The banana salted caramel was really unique, with a subtle sweetness coming from the dates and mesquite rather than the usual stronger emphasis from caramel from other Melbourne cafes.

The Prince

I thought I had already seen the peak of Melbourne brunch aesthetics until I saw THE PRINCE. The Prince was a classy, royal way to begin our breakfast! We were so pleasantly surprised by the way the breakfast board was presented – in a forest and grazing platter styled manner, with crispy kale-covered forest floor. This became the perfect background for the thick cut smoke speck and chargrilled chorizo. Speckles of spice and the refreshing juiciness of the tomato gave a variety of versatile flavours.

KB Breez

The house-smoked salmon in the KB Breez was the hero of our dish. Blended with the onion and avocado into a creamy tartare, it was complemented by delicious seafood okonomiyaki, with small surprises of prawn and calamari embedded within the potato! It was a healthy way to balance our good “unsaturated” fats with indulgence – and a unique twist incorporating the classic brunch avo.

French Toast

Kitty Burns’ French Toast was a beautiful, light way to finish our brunch that didn’t leave us with a sickly guilty feeling! The saffron poached pear had slight tinges of sweetness with a lovely texture that brought together its delicate flavours without compromising the subtlety of the saffron. A personal favourite component was of course the brioche itself, with a light caramelised crispy toastiness of the edges giving away to a fluffy interior.

The bad fat: Despite the Prince having the one of the most incredible aesthetics of Melbourne brunch dishes I had seen, the components themselves didn’t give a “WOW” factor when they came together but worked well independently. We were so keen to try the Kitty Burns Bullet Proof coffee, only to find out that it wasn’t available – not necessarily a bad thing cos it just means we’ll be back another time!

FAT-O-METER: 4.5/5
