long story short cafe, port melbourne

Mamma has found a cafe that has arguably THE most Instagram-worthy menu in the South!
The colours are so vibrant and each dish is so perfectly presented that you almost don't want to eat them! However, if you order the decadent Tim Tam pancakes, you will find it impossible not to tuck straight into the chocolatey goodness! 
There are smoothie bowls, poke bowls, fish tacos and salads for the more health conscious - and for the extreme sweet tooth, you can't go past the fairy floss dessert burger...
The drinks are also a work of art. From the amazing hot chocolate sphere - which, once hot milk is poured over, melts to reveal mini marshmallows inside; to the spectacular butterfly pea flower tea which is a magnificent purple colour and tastes delightfully refreshing - to the sweetness of a purple taro latte - there is something to tantalise all taste-buds.
The little ones are not neglected - with their own menu and some pencils to keep their little hands busy. Mamma was particularly impressed with how, upon arrival, they bought a plastic cup with a lid and straw with our jug of water, saving the inevitable spilt drink!

Mamma's special mention:
Want to keep the fun going? Head directly across the road to the awesome Play Central Playcentre, or down the road to the Plum Garland Memorial Park on the beach.
