Perched at the top of Glenferrie Road, close to Barkers Road, there’s nothing alien about Life on Mars. Dark wooden counters with a mishmash of industrial wooden chairs, drop lights and plants in grey pots creates a modern yet rustic fit-out.
Climbing up the ranks of Liar Liar as one of the top breakfast places to go in Hawthorn, food here is made with quality ingredients sourced locally.
Bread is sourced from Noisette, a local bakery, coffee is Allpress and milk is from Jonesy’s Dairy Fresh – all local industries around Melbourne. Menu items range from light breakfast items to hearty wagyu burgers and sandwiches. Try ‘The Rueben’, grilled corned beef brisket, jarlsberg swiss cheese and pickled cabbage on dark rye ($12.50).
