This Wholesome New Farm Cafe Is Where To Start Your New Year Right

Realistic resolutions

By Kiri Johnston | 10th January 2024

Fancy a guilt-free brunch date?

As we ease into the new year, we’re all about slowing down and recovering from the whirlwind that was the holiday season. You know how it goes – everyone’s suddenly chanting the ‘New Year, New Me’ mantra. We make promises to ourselves to go on daily hot girl walks, switch from coffee to herbal tea, and swear off sugar entirely. But let’s be real, before we know it, we’re back to our old ways, forgetting those resolutions like they were never made.

Despite the usual stories we tell ourselves, there’s something about New Year’s motivation that makes us rethink our entire lives. Still, maybe it’s time to look at January as a chance to reflect on a more balanced and realistic approach to life. Because, let’s face it: those ‘resolutions’ tend to fade away faster than last night’s dreams.

Keeping it real, our weekends can still be all about lazy days, sleeping in, and enjoying tasty meals with friends. I mean, what else are weekends really for, aside from tackling mountains of laundry?

Our current go-to brunch spot this summer is Mylk + Ko. Tucked away on Merthyr Road in the lively New Farm, this cosy cafe has all the goods to fill you up without going overboard. Whether you’re into sweet or savoury, their morning menu has your back.

Mylk + Ko welcomes friends, families, and even pets – it’s the perfect spot for the whole crew. Sit outside for some people-watching, escape the heat indoors with the AC, or grab a takeaway for those lazy days at home.

With a focus on delicious and wholesome food crafted by their talented in-house chefs, they’ve got a menu full of all-day breakfast delights. From classics like eggs on toast to mouthwatering bagels, there’s something for everyone. Feeling a bit adventurous? Try the Citrus Crumpets or Romesco Gnocchi – because why not?

Gluten and dairy-free? The XO Mushroom Scramble is a winner, featuring house XO mushroom scrambled eggs, thick sourdough, sesame seeds, spring onion, chilli gastrique, fried enoki, and micros.

For a guilt-free option, go for their acai bowls – all-housemade vegan goodness that’s customisable to be gluten-free too, of course. Are you a diehard chocolate lover? The Ferrero Rocher, Lamington or Snickers bowl will always hit the spot. Craving something fruity? The Bali Bliss bowl is the way to go. And if you’re sticking to the classics, The Original and Caramelo bowls are crowd favourites.

No matter what you choose, Mylk + Ko is the ideal spot for a pre-work breakfast, a brunch date with your girlfriends, or a lunch date with your furry friend – they even have treats for both of you.

Mylk + Ko is walk-in only.
