Phat Milk Flemington Flat Lay (1 of 1)

phat milk, flemington

arrived home in melbourne today to absolutely stunning weather, the view over the grampians as we flew in was breathtaking! … and in true form, we went straight to brunch!

phat milk is conveniently located along mount alexander road in leafy flemington. it’s an area i don’t often frequent, but if this morning’s brunch is any indication of the food in the area i may be back a bit more regularly.

Phat Milk St Ali Flat White Coffee (1 of 1) first off is theย st ali coffee, which was beautiful. pride of place in the front room of the cafe is a huge antique wooden serving coffee table and just a few small tables, but the cafe has a large sunny courtyard out the back with extra seating.

having been up since 5am for my flight home i was starving and in need of something more lunchy, so went with a more savoury option.

Phat Milk Flemington Fritters Duck Confit (1 of 1)

confit duck on zucchini + corn fritters with fresh watercress, poached egg + beetroot relish and drizzled pomegranate molasses. i’m always a bit anxious when ordering fritters (nothing worse than powdery under-cooked fritters), but these were amazing! crispy, crunchy + plenty of corn! yum! the beetroot relish + pomegranate molasses was sweet + perfectly complimented the duck. double yum!

Phat Milk Flemington Polenta Hotcake (1 of 1)

polenta hotcake with fresh seasonal fruits + berries, whipped mascarpone, and a house made mixed berry coulis. first off, i loved the consistency of the polenta – italian origins, cornmeal boiled like porridge + then baked, fried or grilled – hotcake! it was light + less sugary than a standard hotcake. secondly, the fresh fruit on top – figs, finely sliced fresh peach – were juicy + tasty. the berry coulis contained blueberries, strawberries, raspberries, blackberries (a possibly a few other hidden varieties) – delicious! and all wonderfully pulled together by a creamy mascarpone… this dish is drool worthy + a creative variation on the other hotcakes found on numerous melbourne cafes.
