My best friend came down to Melbourne for her birthday weekend, and what better way to start off the celebration than a birthday brunch?
The Crux & Co has been on my radar for a while, but it was only when we arrived that I realised it was right opposite Kettle Black, where I celebrated my birthday a couple of years ago, what a coincidence!
The interior of Crux & Co was spot on, large and airy, with high ceilings and plenty of green plants to go around, the space was chic yet homely.
The food came out relatively quick, and of course, being a cafe in South Melbourne, it wouldn’t be complete with some edible flowers thrown into the mix. The croissant itself was buttery and flakey, with layers of smoked salmon hiding underneath a green salad, the creamy ricotta also went well with a salmon, though it’s not a flavour combination that I had seen before.
There was also plenty of sweet offerings in the glass cabinet, however, I had to head back to uni, and didn’t have a chance to sample anything,. But hey, that just mean I have to make a return soon!
How to get there:
The Crux & Co is located on Albert Road, catch any tram from stop #13 Federation Square/Swanston Street, and get off at stop #20 Domain Interchange/St Kilda Road, and the cafe is three minutes walk away.
