The Kingsway café and dining scene is about to get a lot more exciting with the addition of White Mojo Plus+. With successful cafés at Balwyn and the CBD, the lucky folks at Glen Waverley have been blessed with the sibling store, White Mojo Plus+ due to open in mid-September. Except, this sister café comes with the added glam of dinner service.
I’ve been a huge fan of the Balwyn café, also known as the home of the croissant burger. Yep, a soft-shell crab burger sandwiched within a butter croissant. It is what food dreams are made of. Safe to say that I was excited about getting a sneak peak at the menu offerings at White Mojo Plus+, and it did not disappoint.
The venue keeps in line with their other cafes – blonde wooden panels, hexagonal fittings, and concrete floors. It’s light, bright and airy. An addition to this super café is an indoor/outdoor dining area with a retractable roof, and a private function venue that’s straight out of Alice in Wonderland. It is simply stunning.
Forgetting about the beautiful space, the food is knock-out. The menu will focus on interesting and modern flavour combinations, theatrical presentation and, of course, kick-ass coffee. At it’s heart, White Mojo is a speciality coffee roaster, with it’s own house blend combination of 75% natural and 25% wet hulled Sumatran beans. All roasted on-site of course.
No longer do us outer suburbian folks have to settle for mediocrity, thanks to these guys. Next time you’re hankering for a soul warming coffee and some tastebud tingling food, grab some friends and head down to White Mojo Plus+.
