Axil Coffee Roasters

Axil is located on Burwood Road in Hawthorn (near the corner of Glenferrie Road).  It's one of those gems l discovered when I was working in the area. In a big warehouse conversion space, it's got that cool, hip vibe. This place is bursting with people every time I visit, so don't be too surprised if you need to wait 15 minutes or so for a table.


D and I came here for a quick bite for our usual brunch routine on the weekend. We had our drinks order taken as soon we an sat down. To change things up a little and an attempt to be more healthy, D opted for water and l got fresh orange juice.

For the main show, D got the potato hash. This came with a big Portobello mushroom, poached egg, truffle sauce, crispy fried parmesan wafer and finished with porcini salt. This is the perfect dish for any mushroom lover; the truffle aroma is intense and paired with the poached egg over the potato hash it created the balance of hearty and potato goodness.
I went with the red velvet pancakes. The fluffy pancakes came surrounded by cream cheese ganache, raspberries and a big scoop of black sesame ice cream. This was a good change up from the usual brunch hotcake/pancake option of chocolate or berry assortment. l particularly like the black sesame ice cream, it wasn't too sweet and played off the red velvet flavors nicely.

Overall 16/20 this is one of my favorite places to visit in the area. It has great food, service and atmosphere. Although I didn't review it this time, l highly recommend their coffee and tomato cheese toasties.
