Despite being only five weeks old, this new brunching haven has already made quite a reputation for itself. The polished new café is doing some amazing things, with crowds and waiting lists already popping up during the weekend brunching hour rush. This early success has lead to rapid growth for White Mojo, which is already quickly expanding with a second, larger cafe set to open in Balwyn on 1 June.

White Mojo is tucked down Hardware Street in the CBD, located opposite from the more famous Hardware Lane across Lonsdale Street. The café’s interior is expertly decked out in blonde wooden panels, which climb the walls behind the counter and intersect with white marbled hexagonal tiles to create an interesting floor to ceiling effect. The result is a café with a relaxed summer vibe even during these colder winter months.

Wrap your hands around a mug of Sumatran coffee, which is lovingly roasted in house and served in true Melbourne style, while on-trend matcha lattes provide the perfect anti-coffee option, topped with some carefully crafted barista artwork that makes drinking it almost a tragedy.

Although it’s been open for only a short time, menu favourites have already been clearly established among diners and Instagrammers alike. Their epic croissant burger hybrid allows you to indulge in a crispy soft shell crab with pickled cucumber, chipotle mayo and runny fried egg between two magical bits of flakey buttery croissant. To add a touch of theatre to your breakfast, you can’t go past their unique cauliflower panna cotta with black pudding dust, Canadian scallop, crispy pancetta, 63°C egg, dehydrated red onion and potato popcorn all cloaked under a smoke veiled glass cloche.

It’s exciting to see the growth of a new city staple, particularly in an area once dominated by a certain French-themed café. The menu is expected to change every three months (while keeping those crowd favourites). It’s almost a certainty that the croissant burger will be sticking for around some time but we suggest you try it sooner rather than later.
