Mister Fox is located off Ringwood Golf course, which means that there is a gorgeous view of the lush green field through its window. The cafe makes good use of its location by incorporating ceiling to floor windows around the back of the restaurant, allowing the interior to be bathed in sunlight when the weather plays in its favour.
My friend went for the classic BLT, because she was after a simple pick-me-up after a gym session. The bacon was crispy, and the lettuce came in the form of rocket, which added some bitterness, and the baguette had a nice crusty exterior.
Not gonna lie, part of the reason I ordered the breakfast salad (shocking, I know) was due to its name. The salad was definitely very healthy, with a mix of quinoa, avocado, corn, spinach, chia, and feta and maple glazed bacon to add some balance to the dish.Because there was no dressing, the salad was a bit bland, although I added a ton of salt and pepper myself, it was still lacking in the flavour department. I wish there was a simple vinaigrette of some sort to tie the salad together.
Although the view was beautiful in Mister Fox, the food was average at best. It’s clearly found itself some loyal customers though, but maybe that’s because it doesn’t have to necessarily stand out given its location? Regardless, I don’t see myself returning to Mister Fox in the near future.
How to get there:
Mister Fox is located on Canterbury Road, get on bus #901, and get off at Canterbury Road/Wantirna Road, and the restaurant is around five minutes walk away.
