Coco Lounge - Glen Waverley Victoria

I was in Melbourne for the weekend as part of my participation in Landmark Educations Team, Management and Leadership Program and I stopped for a couple of extra days to visit with friends and family who live there. Once we had caught up on all the news from East and West the obvious question was “where shall we go for breakfast?”. And the answer was the Coco Lounge. It’s a licensed cafe/restaurant and to be honest it’s nothing particularly special to look at, they saved all the effort for what’s most important to any diner, the food. I love to visit Melbourne for the sheer range and diversity of top notch eating places, Perth Restraunters could learn a lot from spending a couple of weeks in Melbourne experiencing the pride and detail that goes into making a meal extra special. Coco Lounge is one of those places you could visit again and again, which in fact we did eating there for three meals in two days; one dinner and two breakfasts. For breakfast both days I had the mushrooms on rye, just delicious. Of an evening they serve cocktails and the dinner menu is scrumptious with plenty of choices even for a vegetarian like me. Add to that prompt friendly service and welcome to a foodies heaven.
