Light Years Cafe

Everything here is beautiful and tasty. The gorgeously fitted out space features stone, marble, wood and timber, making for a commanding space, softened by the circular light fitting, banquette seating and indoor planter boxes. The plating up of the delicious food is equally good looking. Meals are above and beyond your standard café fare, imbued with flavour tricks that delight the senses, often revealing chef Simon Ward’s fascination with Asian cuisine. Breakfast and brunch favourites include the matcha waffles with lemon cheesecake and popping candy and the soft-shell crab burger with gooey sriracha mayo on a brioche bun. Yum! It is easy to see why Light Years Café has received such glowing reviews and is sought out by locals, professionals and foodies from right around the city. Don’t miss out on dining at this destination of deliciousness in Hawthorn.
