Glovers Station

The biggest draw card of Glovers Station in Elsternwick is its venue - transformed from what once used to be a service station from the 1930s, the cafe which prides itself on using locally sourced organic produce is bright and spacious on the inside with a courtyard for brunch in the sun on the outside.

Using only seasonal produce, Glovers Station changes its menu monthly to make the most of the local produce in season.  On this occasion i ordered the smoky beans with mozzarella, pesto and corn purée.  The dish came out looking magnificently drool worthy and he flavours of the beans, pesto and corn purée worked beautifully together. However, I wouldn't have called the beans "smokey" as it lacked any smokiness flavour (or any big flavours) and the couple of tiny dollops of mozzarella were completely lost in the dish.

Whilst I loved Glovers Stations' concept of using only organic local produce and my dish was "nice", unfortunately on this occasion it wasn't a dish that I would run back for.  At least next month there will be a new menu to look forward to!

Food: 2.5/5

Service: 4/5
Total: 11/15
Verdict: Like - get around to trying it at some point.
