darling st espresso, moonee ponds

Darling St Espresso - you have been hiding from Mamma! This cute little corner store conversion is nestled in the pretty back streets of Moonee Ponds, and is clearly a fav amongst the locals - and those who are in the know.  It really ticks all the boxes for Mamma - lots of character, welcoming staff, a FANTASTIC menu (which means Mamma will be coming back very soon to try more), 3 seating areas (2 inside, one with toys) and a heated undercover outdoor area that also welcomes the pooches.  There are colouring pencils and paper for the littlies too and a great kids menu.
Ahem....let's talk about the food again - of course all locally sourced - Mamma had the Poke Bowl which was delicious and balanced it out with the Doughnut Waffles with raspberry jam, whipped matcha cream cheese, peach caramel and maple meringue (yup) this is the prettiest dish you'll ever see. 

....next time Mamma is getting the Prawn Tacos, or maybe the Sriracha Fried Chicken Burger... 

Mamma's special mention: Head to Pipemakers Park is a quick five minute drive away for a play and a run
