Nelson Box Hill
Melbourne’s latest café is brought to us by Only Hospitality, who also have MOB Camberwell, Stanley, and Bentwood Fitzroy to name just a few.
Julien Moussi, Tony Pantone, and Nicky Campbell thought they’d spread their wings further East, and perched themselves across the road from Box Hill Tafe, on Nelson Road. Julien’s wife Kristy grew up in this bustling eastern suburb, so when the position became available at the base of an apartment complex, they jumped at the opportunity. Designed by Zunica, the sleek space is the perfect canvas for food and coffee to shine. Speaking of food, The Fig & Mascarpone dish with grilled stone-fruit was inspired by a favourite London café Julien frequents while abroad, which demonstrates just how tasty a fresh and simple dish can actually be. The Smashed Kabocha Pumpkin with Feta and Beetroot Hummus also proved to be a delicious cure for that mid-morning ‘hungry hit’, which paired well with the Kenyan espresso roasted by Inglewood.
Massive congratulations to Julien and the Only Hospitality Group for bringing us another winning venue.
