I am not kidding when i say that is one of my favourites cafés around Melbourne and around the globe. Simply i can not describe the incredible plates, amazing taste and wonderful atmosphere amoung the staff and with the customers. Currently is not easy for...me to go there because i am so far away from there (Europe) but next time i will go there again for sure and i highly recommend everybody to eat there and drink the best coffee ever. Thank you so much for the warm welcoming and delicious food!! I am so happy and missing a lot this place.More

Took my 96 year old Dad and my wife for brunch, what a superb surprise, Joe ( l assume owner) could not have been more helpful,the level of service from all of the staff was exemplary, caring and attentive. The food was outstanding, the coffee...just as enjoyable. It is rare to feel such an overall experience. Well done and thanks.More

Had a recent breakfast meet-up with friends. Wow - the feed was a delight. Each dish was insta-worthy and tasted even better. I had the house dish of portobello mushrooms, and they switched the poached for scrambled eggs without any fuss. Will go again for...sure. The pancakes looked outstanding for those with a sweet tooth!More

Had breakfast at Shanklin this morning. It was outstanding! I ordered the Pork Benny, it was presented beautifully and utterly delicious. I also ordered the espresso milkshake as opposed to my normal iced latte. Go early as it’s a small venue and became quite busy.

$32 for some eggs with sides and A coffee. Poached eggs where hard, toast not crip and very difficult to cut. Coffee was nice, although served a cup when I asked for a mug. Woman at the till acted like she was doing me a...favour. Wouldn't return.More

I happened upon this lovely spot just down from my Air bnb as my room was not ready yet and I had just flown in from Vancouver. Initially I just wanted a tea (4.5) but looked over the menu several times. Eventually I settled on...the Portobella mushroom (23) Outstanding! The mushrooms (I had 3) were crusted with panko and zaatar spice, stacked over romesco sauce and steamed spinach, topped with grilled pepper and halloumi and two poached eggs. I also opted for a side of avocado (6.50). For me this was enough for 2 meals. I could taste each element which is paramount for me when I am out paying for a meal as a chef. I highly recommend this cozy little find.More

Shanklin, what a cool establishment, super friendly service and very accommodating. We ordered the specials of the day, Benny supreme? With pulled pork and the roast chicken salad. Presentation perfect, the Benny a very rich and tasty treat, highly recommended. Impressed by the staff interest...in our thoughts about the dishes, and welcomed our feedback. Highly recommend you give Shanklin a go.More
