Lucky Penny

Healthy or naughty - everyone's a winner at Melbourne café Lucky Penny...

Find a penny, pick it up, and all the day you’ll have good luck. So goes the rhyme, and although we’re not especially inclined to believe such superstition, it can’t hurt to hedge your bets and swing by Lucky Penny in South Yarra, Melbourne. You might not win the lottery as a result, but there’s certainly excellent odds of scoring some of the finest local food and drink around, courtesy of a collaboration between entrepreneurs Justin Re and Matt ‘Lanis’ Lanigan and Vanessa Nitsos and Jason Chan of Lady Bower Kitchen in Reservoir.

The menu is big on seasonal, fresh and locally-sourced foods, and while you can get plenty of healthy salads and juices, there are also some appetising cheat day treats – a champagne breakfast or waffles with salted chocolate and ice cream are the perfect choices to start the day off on an indulgent note. Coffee is also a major event here, with staff trained at the Australian Barista Academy no less! Biasol Design Studio has plumped for a Scandinavian look, rustic in tone but with a sleek finish. The whitewashed brick walls give the whole place a clean feel, with darker woods and tan leathers adding a warming touch. Well worth a punt…
