Respond to Review of Monk Bodhi Dharma
Review: We visited this little cafe one cold winter afternoon. It was a public holiday and our 'favourites' were closed. Its a fairly eccentric little place that is tucked away at the back of shopping strip in the inner suburbs of Melbourne. Cool ambience in what looks like converted stable or workshop, deceptively rustic with well-appointed prep area etc. Good coffee, bean roaster prominently placed in open plan eatery suggests they roast their own coffee beans?. Staff very pleasant and competant, reasonably priced. Ecclectic menu with things like bruschetta and tagines well cooked, served on interesting, mismatched china etc. Lots of cool alternative-type customers on the day we were there but still comfy (not too new-age pretentious). It is very snug and you would need to feel ok about sharing a table if its busy. We waited outside for a spot (carpark area)on funny little stools where we were served hot drinks promptly, by friendly staff. Took me back to my student days and various venues in 1970's Glebe (Sydney) etc. All vegetarian food with plenty of vegan options. I'd return but probably for coffee and snacks. It was nice to have a different all-veg option but one that doesn't just rely on that and has good beverages, cool water on tables, attention to style.
