A well-loved Prahran institution, Globe Café is a contemporary eatery with plenty of charm. Found on Chapel Street, the well-worn interiors here are a testament to the café's popularity, which serves a contemporary all day menu and plenty of daily blackboard specials hung over the fireplace. If you've come for a coffee, be sure to also check out the cakes cabinet for a great sweet treat.

A convenient Chapel Street location close to trams and Windsor station.

Since opening 18 years ago, Globe Cafe has been a favoured destination for those hit with a desire for a big breakfast and even bigger cakes, but after such a long time on the scene it had faded a little into the background. A recent revamp by new owners has reinvented the cafe as a fresh, contemporary space with a design-oriented feel. A revolving array of local artwork adorns the walls and new chef Daryl Morris has created a menu that offers modern, fine food in a relaxed environment. The seasonal dinner menu may see you start with a grilled calamari salad with green paw-paw before sampling sumac-crusted lamb rump with beetroot tortellino or a puff pastry pie with spinach, peppers, pine nuts, taleggio and caramelised onion with spiced yoghurt.

Lunchtime sees more casual offerings in the form of an Angus steak or triple-decker chicken sandwich, Nicoise or Caesar salad, or a decadent confit duck and white bean jaffle. All-day breakfast ranges from the homey (boiled eggs with toast soldiers, Milo and milk) to the indulgent (Gruyere cheese omelette, chilli corn cakes with smoked salmon and avocado, fresh grapefruit juice and Campari). There is still an amazing range of cakes on offer, although they have been downsized into somewhat more manageable treats. A great little space out the back offers a quieter nook, equally suited to enjoying cake and a cuppa with your mother as a glass of bubbly with your lover. The variety makes Globe a versatile eatery that offers a warm and welcoming environment and great food at any time of the day.
