Cafe Vamp is one of those places that seems to be perpetually full - it certainly isn't your typical Hawthorn cafe and looks like it's been transported from Brunswick Street.
It's a casual and rather funky spot, the menu offers all your typical breakfast and lunch options, with salads and pasta as well as freshly made focaccias. After much thought we settle on two brunch mainstays
Paalo has the 3 stack of pancakes with mascarpone, strawberries and vanilla syrup. As a pancake aficionado this gets a big thumbs up.
I order the Big Brekky - toasted sourdough sits underneath this pile which contains 2 small spicy pork sausages, spinach, sautéed mushrooms, bacon and grilled tomato. 2 poached eggs (not quite as soft as I prefer) and hollandaise top this dish.
The coffee is also excellently made and served at the correct temperature.
