No need to cry, Spilt Milk is delicious

Who else loves that great feeling when you rediscover an item of clothing that you used enjoy wearing? Or catching up with a friend you haven’t seen in awhile? And then you remember how amazing the clothing item/friend is and you fall in love all over again!!

Along a similar vein, I rediscovered my love of Spilt Milk – no, not the on the floor mess -  rather, a cafe tucked just around the corner from me off the main shopping drag in Carnegie. Spilt Milk is a relatively new cafe to the ever-increasing foodie precinct (it is celebrating it’s first birthday in May this year) and quickly created a loyal following within the local community. And their recipe for success amongst high-standard of Melbourne cafes?

It naturally ticks all the boxes in terms of:

- Divine, consistently amazing coffee that includes a single origin or blend in either espresso or filter drip

- Delicious, quality food

- A relaxed and down-to-earth vibe with lots of inherent charm

- A definitive quirk through an animal-themed menu (the “sheep” i.e. baked free-range eggs served in a pan with sun-dried tomatoes, feta, and spinach on sough dough with chilli jam is one of my favourites)

- The Age available for a peruse whilst you sip your long black blend

However, it is the genuine welcome and interest shown by the husband/wife team and owners, Jansen and Sam, that have made me go back three times in the past week alone. It is a cafe where one feels valued and instantly at home. The enthusiasm, knack for remembering your coffee order, and a passion for life/coffee(!), is in my books an absolutely winning combination. Yep – I am already planning my next trip!


Spilt Milk owner Jansen Domantay – makes a damn fine coffee!
