Treehouse Lounge

Treehouse Lounge, you are a charmer. Perhaps it was the cozy ‘Tarzan-like’ feel that it alluded, with it’s wooden accents and tracery of delicate green vines and leaves. Or maybe it was simply just the fact that the place was so warm and welcoming, the perfect spot to hide away from the cold.


But first, coffee. A cappuccino and flat white was ordered stat to wake us up.

The Mexikent

Motivated to choose a dish I would not normally, I went for the Mexikent – a spicy salsa of black beans, avo smash, tomato, sweet corn, coriander, sour cream, smokey chorizo and poached egg a top toasted corn bread. You know you have eggs to look forward to when, with just a gentle nudge, it wobbles. Unfortunately, the corn bread was little too crumbly and dry for my liking, though the fiesta of toppings alleviated this well.


Set before Melbourne Girl was her monstrous bruchetta. A thick slice of crunchy dark rye toast with smashed sweet potato, feta, avo, red cabbage, spring onions, herbs and cherry tomatoes finished with a drizzle of sticky balsamic glaze. An incredibly generously sized dish that filled her right up.

Service was friendly, attentive and ready to please and food and coffee were served in a flash. Though the food did not knock my socks off, Melbourne Girl and I had a wonderful time at Treehouse Lounge. Now to go watch some Disney movies.
