New burgers on the menu at Little St Kilda Cafe
Constructed entirely from scraps collected from the council’s clean-up, Little St Kilda Cafe is not your average cafe fit-out. From discarded welding helmets to old scales and a bucket turned light fitting, the eclectic venue proves that everything, no matter how odd, has a place in this world. The venue’s owner, Katie, is the brains behind the madness and has envisioned every part of the space from the synthetic grass up.
The unpretentious surrounds at Little St Kilda Cafe perfectly reflect the venue’s approach to food – rustic, locally sourced and satisfying. Take a seat at the old bus-shelter bench and grab a coffee or if time permits, an alcoholic beverage and take your time deliberating over the tempting new array of burgers. The appetising selections cover all of the main meat offerings including beef, pork, fish, chicken and bacon as well as a garlic mushroom and halloumi option for non-carnivorous diners. If you’re in the mood for something zesty, the coriander and lime fish with jalapeno aioli promises to satisfy while the Smokin’ Pork that is loaded with 12-hour slow-cooked pork slathered in Little St Kilda’s secret sauce comes highly recommended. The fiery Kick Arse Beef and Smoked Cheddar is made using locally-smoked bacon, LSK slaw and topped with jalapeno onion rings, barbeque sauce and aioli and is another one of the house favourites. Go all out and add melted cheese and bacon to your chips for an Australian version of Canada’s favourite poutine, because life’s too short not to get the sides.
Little St Kilda Cafe is the kind of place you can sit and relax over a morning coffee or tuck in to a post-surf feast without having to don your Sunday best to do so. The low key vibes and eclectic surrounds have made it a popular hangout for locals, most of whom Katie knows by name and order. In addition to monstrous burgers, Little St Kilda Cafe offers a refreshingly simple approach to your morning meal with delights including The Bangin Sanga and The Smashed Avo In Ya Face and there are plans to extend into evening trade.
