Each Peach

Filed under: Brunswick,cafes & pubs,food,Lygon Street — Kath @ 11:44 am

A very positive review of Each Peach appeared in yesterday’s Age. I admit given the owner’s background with the superb Loafer Bread I had the impression it was a a bakery rather than a cafe, so thus far I’ve been disappointed with Each Peach. But by all other accounts it’s a fine little establishment.

Here’s an extract from the review:

Home-made ginger beer, a three-citrus squeezed juice, an organic hot chocolate and a little “cup of foam” join the coffees. There are toasties of ham and melty Italian fontina cheese, or a selection of sourdough panini using bread from Zeally Bay. Like much on offer here, it’s organic.

The panini arrive crunchy, burny-fingers hot, and filled with fresh, pleasantly understated combinations such as thick seams of snowy ricotta and sweet, chunky pumpkin with Coburg pesto – so named because it is made from basil grown in a local back garden – or milky sour goat’s curd with meaty rough-cut green olive tapenade and a wad of rocket. They are very good.

  1. Helen (the owner)’s background is as a pastry chef and she also knows a lot (by marriage) about Greek cooking and these are the real strengths of the place. Her quince ripples are completely addictive. I have it on good authority from my husband (the chocoholic in the family) that her chocolate cookies are superb and everyone I have seen who has ordered them raves about her Greek beans for breakfast. Can’t really go past the banana bread. Her homemade breads and pannini’s are also exceptional and I don’t know quite what it is she does to the scrambled eggs but I have never tasted eggs this smooth and yummy!

    The organic nicaraguan coffee is also very fine. Roasted by Josh Bailey in North Melbourne.

    Even my chooks are happy scoring extra bins of scraps when her own compost bin is full!

  2. I went to Each Peach for lunch today. It was JUST BEAUTIFUL. I had a very unusual and yummy walnut and parmesan tart with a simple salad of bitter endive and butter lettuce. Then I had the shortest of short blacks (very superior coffee) with the YUMMIEST Greek custard tart EVER. Unlike most custard things, it was barely sweet — perfect.

    I’m won over.
