Daniel Son is a cafe located in a little strip of shops on Neerim Rd, a stone's throw away from Chadstone Shopping Centre. On a shopping trip down that way recently Bubs and I had one of our Friday brunchie dates there.
After a hectic morning of school drop offs and witnessing some pretty dangerous parental driving and road rage, I was ready for a coffee. (Seriously people it's not that big an ask to drive safely when dropping your children off at school and not use obscene words at each other!) My mocha ($3.8) came with a pretty heart and a thumbs up for meeting the Melbourne standard!
I was a little disappointed that the fritters on the specials board was not available by the time we got there mid-morning, and that we didn't get to try the crack pie that I had seen on their instagram feed. We ended up getting what we like to call the "choose your own adventure" options, starting with sous vide slow poached eggs on toast ($9), and adding a side of house made hashbrown ($4) and free range bacon ($4.5). Not amazing but a decent and pleasant breakfast dish.
The cafe has room for prams and there were lots of mummies and toddlers as well as the usual mix of local business-people on coffee breaks and uni students on their way to afternoon classes. The staff were friendly and efficient. A cool little suburban cafe.
