LE MIEL et la lune on Urbanspoon

Click here, and tell me how you cannot resist visiting this place? I LOVE bears, so very adorable. Having visited a lot of the breakfast places in CBD I decided to venture out a little bit further out, and used my trusty Urbanspoon to help me decide.
Having just arrived back from Malaysia I was craving for my breakfasts that I had back here in Melbourne, as I was eating pretty much noodles and congee the whole time in Malaysia.

Loved the layout of the cafe, very clean and spacious. The waiter who served me was VERY attentive and also helped me bring over a newspaper when I said I was going to get up and grab myself a paper.
I also liked the fact that he squatted down when he was taking our orders rather than standing up very tall and high. Don’t know it feels less intimidating in my opinion :)

What a beautifully presented cup of hot chocolate!, and even better yet it was a rich but very smooth cup of hot chocolate. Enjoyed it thoroughly :)

I can remember at the time of ordering I had trouble choosing between the dish below and another dish (I cant remember which one now), and I said to the waiter I couldn’t choose. He told me that this dish is great but a very huge portion.
I was feeling pretty hungry so I said yeah, why not – Brioche, bacon, bananas and maple syrup please! And when my dish arrive… my eyes were like O___O (yes – portions are getting ridiculously huge these days at cafes).
Needless to say I had a difficult time finishing this dish. I ended up eating one slice out of the two pieces of brioche that was on the plate, but managed to eat all the bananas, and bacon because it was so good!
The sweetness of the maple syrup and banana together with the saltiness of the bacon are a complete match made in heaven! Absolutely delicious! Love it.

Another cafe highly recommended by Peach – It’s a cute cafe, with exceptional service. They serve Proud Mary coffee, and… hey they have a cute bear on their windows :) Give it a try, you won’t be disappointed!


  1. How adorable! Your dish looks so good, sweet & savoury :) And I also think it’s more personal when the waiters get down to eye level – probably because I’m so short haha I don’t get to brunch enough, I should go in the morning before work!

    • Catherine!
      Hehehe, yup – very adorable!
      Yeah the dish was a complete mind blowing experience with the sweetness of the banana and bacon and the savouryness of the bacon. So omnom :)

      :D Yay – I’m glad that you agree. I’m actually quite tall, but I still prefer eye level talking.
      It’s a short walk away from Melb Uni, so definitely make a visit if you work that way!


  2. Wow, I love how you had done the typography of each photo – really clever and pretty! And I love any place with a french name hehe This doesn’t look too far from uni so perhaps I should pop by after class one day? :)

    • Awww thanks Ames! That’s a real compliment.
      I was doing this late at night and spent quite a few hours so I’m quite happy with it! :)

      And yes, you need to visit it! :)
