Tucked away on Toorak Road in the iconic South Yarra Square, SOS café offers the best organic and local produce; making food that is good for your soul! From sublime smoothies to gluten free 'tiramisu' pancakes, their menu is guilt free; though we promise there is no sacrifice of flavour.
Nor is there any shortage of choices; we knew we would have trouble deciding what to eat. There was a large variety of delicious meals but unfortunately there was only so much we could stuff in our stomachs! Green Eggs and Ham immediately jumped off the menu, don't know whether it was the childhood nostalgia (ahh Dr Seuss!) or just sheer intrigue (are they really going to be green?!). The Tiramisu Pancakes were also a must! Call me crazy but we have never had bad days that started with coffee and pancakes; combining the two into the one dish just seems like a no-brainer.
Before the plates even hit the table we could tell that SOS's presentation was on point. Sneaking glances at other diners meals it was clear to see their consistent, fastidious presentation.
The green eggs and ham consisted of organic greens folded through silky scrambled eggs served on sourdough with crispy prosciutto for a salty kick. "I like green eggs and ham, I do! I like them Sam I-am!". Surely we weren't the first to sing that tune while devouring this dish.
The tiramisu pancakes arrived as beautiful fluffy pancakes layered with cashew cream, banana, pistachio, cacao nibs, espresso ice-cream and hot maple syrup ristretto. Might have to start running to work in the mornings because we don't know if our usual morning latte is going to cut it on its own anymore!
Calling all organic food lovers, notorious brunchers and anyone who truly knows the value of a proper pancake stack... we certainly recommend you get down to SOS Cafe!
