Big on tastiness
Where: A short skip and a jump away, 170m from The CLUBhouse means it’ll literally take you a minute. 731 High Street, Thornbury.
What: Short Round have a seasonal menu so it is partial to changing. Their Winter menu for example, is loaded with wintry veggies like kale and cauliflower. However, they consistently offer up a wide range of everything from Golden polenta porridge to one pan ‘fry-up’ eggs with chorizo, brunch cocktails and some of the best coffee getting around. Super spacious set-up inside and outside, so you can take all your AWF buddies along for the ride.
Price range: Standard café pricing you can generally sort yourself for around $20 including coffee. You’ll spend a buit more if you opt for a Bloody May at $13 but you know it’ll be worth it.
Vegetarian/vegan options: Short Round don’t skimp on the good stuff. Their vegetarian options are equally as decadent as their meaty counterparts and there are loads of options. The haloumi and egg roll with avocado and aioli on their Winter menu is insane - you’ll be satisfied for days if you manage to finish it. Also on offer are dishes including greens, quinoa and miso baked mushrooms.
Gluten free options: Gluten free bread by Black Ruby is an extra $2.
Opening hours: Monday – Friday 7am to 4pm, Saturday – Sunday 8am to 4pm.
AWF’s Hot Tip: You’ve gotta try the Peanut Butter slice. It lives in the cabinet at the counter.
