60 Commercial Rd., Prahran
We stand for long, communal tables at cafés, mainly because they accommodate our two great loves—group breakfasts and morning-after-the-night-before debriefs. To arrive at an airy, soothingly all-white café and cram more friends than can reasonably fit around a table for scrambled eggs and conversation is one of life’s great pleasures. Tall Timber standouts include their cinnamony French toast dolloped with maple mascarpone, and toast with smashed, spiced pumpkin, and poached eggs. Their turmeric-spiced golden milk is good, but their matcha is better. Follow the hot drinks with cold, watermelon and mint-juice chasers for extra zing.
