Easily my favourite cafe in Melbourne is the wonderful mina no ie in Collingwood.

This Japanese inspired place is sister of the also gorgeous Cibi in Collingwood. Cibi also sells homewares but mina is just a really simple, gorgeously sunny place with an open kitchen.

Their sencha tea is lovely, but Bonsoy flat white was impossible to pass up. Fabulous coffee.


Their baked eggs with sweet miso and eggplant and pumpkin and provolone are the stuff of dreams. Sweet and creamy and salty. Possibly the best breakfast in the world.


Lunch menu starts at 11:30 am.
