Tall Timber

Tall Timber

60 Commercial Rd Prahran, VIC 3181

Since its establishment in 2013, Tall Timber has well and truly secured its position as one of Melbourne’s most popular cafés. Located in a relatively quiet area of Prahan, the space is large and rustic, with a fantastic courtyard to bask in the sun during the warmer months. Boasting a seasonal menu that includes both breakfast classics and a selection of more wholesome options for the health-conscious, it’s the perfect destination for a lazy Sunday brunch.

It was raining and absolutely freezing on the first day that K and I decided to visit, but we braved the line and managed to score ourselves a seat in around 20 minutes. A few hot chocolates were the perfect cure to the bitter cold and we settled in to ride out the weather.

Slow cooked honey and BBQ pork ribs ($19.50) – apple cabbage, coriander slaw, sesame and lime

Fall-of-the-bone pork ribs with the perfect sticky glaze and the salad on the side provided a great balance of flavours and textures.

Spicy Asian pulled pork salad ($19.50) – cabbage, apple, coriander, mint, chilli glass noodles and Vietnamese dressing

Very fresh and vibrant ingredients that worked well with the tender chunks of pork and dressing. I was, however, very disappointment with the meagre amount of glass noodles in the salad – there was barely any to be found, which threw the balance of the entire dish. When I asked our waitress about this, she told us it was because they were nearing the end of their salad and all the noodles had been used up on earlier dishes!

Honeycomb Butterbing ($5)

We finished off with a honeycomb Butterbing and decided to return the following week to try out a few more items from the menu.

Roast pumpkin bruschetta ($17.50) – poached eggs, feta, hummus, pinenut dukkah, basil

Easily by favourite dish from Tall Timber between the 2 visits. The warm, roast pumpkin mash was absolutely beautiful and naturally sweet, which worked fantastically with the acidity from the hummus and the saltiness of the feta.

Timber benedict ($20.50) – slow cooked pork shoulder, poached eggs and apple cider hollandaise

Perfectly poached eggs and very tender, melt-in-the-mouth pork were the highlights of this dish. I only wish there was a bit more acidity in the hollandaise, which both K and I found to be too rich.

Overall, K and I enjoyed the vibe at Tall Timber, and even though there were a few flaws with the food, everything was still very tasty. I can certainly see why it’s such a staple in the Melbourne brunch scene and would be keen to return for new dishes to come!
