Trunk Town is a Restaurant, Bar and Diner with one of the largest outdoor courtyards in the CBD. It was built in 1859 as a synagogue and Hebrew School, then it became a state school and used as various other educational, welfare and child care facilities before Trunk opened in December 2007. The diner was our first breakfast stop on our holiday to Melbourne and it lived up to our expectations. The courtyard was adorned with plenty of wooden tables, pretty lights and funky pot plant containers but being a bit chilly we headed indoors and found a warm sunny seat near the front which allowed us to overlook the courtyard theough the clear cafe blinds. Our young son was mesmerised by all the little birds hopping about whilst we hungrily perused the very-reasonably-priced menu.
Getting our priorities right we ordered our coffees first, Flat White for me, Cappucino for hubby,both $3.50 and a baby cino for our son.
I ordered the Free Range Egg with Toast ($8) and a side of Bacon ($3 extra). The eggs were perfectly poached and runny when cut thorugh. The side of crispy bacon was a very generous serve.
Hubby ordered the Breakfast Burger ($8) a toasted Brioche Bun with Bacon, Free Range Egg and melted Cheddar which was rather tasty and deceptively filling.
We ordered Fruit Toast ($6) with Condiments for our son. The large chunks of toast had apricot and fig throughout.
Trunk Diner is open M-F 7:30 til 4pm and on Weekends 8-4. I’m hoping I’ll find time on this holiday to return for lunch to try their yummy sounding Quesadillas.
