Collective Espresso is situated just across to the Camberwell station, certainly no issue to reach this cafe.
Tram no 72 is just located few steps away from the cafe and plenty car parks available just along Cookson Street, Camberwell.
The cafe is very clean, bright and neat with the sleek, modern design used.
It’s relatively a small cafe but they manage to greatly utilise the room by having a long shared table and small table on the side
near the window to have at least 20-30 people inside.
You do have for the outdoor spot when you want to enjoy the sun while having your breakfast.
The vibe and environment were great and cosy, we hardly wanted to move after finishing our breakfast.
The customer staffs were very friendly, nice and approachable.
– Gravity Waffles (Vanilla and while chocolate, whipped cream, kiwi fruit, strawberries, salted caramel & popcorn) for $18.50.
It’s the signature dish by Collective Espresso and we’re keen to try this one as it’s been quite famous in the social media.
The gravity waffles was nicely presented and very appealing served with colorful and fresh fruits.
The salted caramels were fantastic, it wasn’t too sweet which were really good.
The waffles were perfectly cooked, soft and fluffy. The overall texture was fantastic.
The portion served were pretty generous with two great size of waffles.
Surely, a must dish to order when you’re visiting this cafe.
– The Double (double beef, double cheese, double pickles, bacon, relish, trufflenaise & lettuce on a brioche bun with fries) for $20.00.
The burger had good presentation and generously served with bacon, relish, chesse, pickles and beef patties.
The patties were nicely grilled.
The fries on the side were well fried and perfect when you dip using their homemade trufflenaise, Yummmm!!!!
Despite of those positive aspects, unfortunately the beef patties were under seasoned;
They’re tasteless and little bit dry.
– BAM (Blueberry, apple & mint slushie) for $7.50.
We’re intriqued and had doubt when we wanted to order this drink, however it turned out the drink was stunning.
Absolutely, recommended drink and really fresh, perfect in Summer.
– Milkshakes (Strawberry) for $7.50.
The milkshake wasn’t our liking as we hardly tasted the strawberries and the drink didn’t taste like a common milkshake.
It’s ashamed that they used too much milk and it was slightly ruining the overall taste.
It was very light and not thick texture.
Overall, we still had a great experience having brunch in Collective Espresso.
We’ll come back next time and try other dishes.
