WFS Stop 4 was Wee Jeanie, located right next to Yarraville train station.  Cornershop’s younger sibling, this small cafe caters to the morning coffee crowd and also sports a concise breakfast/lunch menu that packs a punch.

Smashed avocado on sourdough toast is popular with patrons, given a middle eastern spin by the addition of creamy goats curd, dukkah and a sweet pomegranate dressing, with a salad of bitter, peppery rocket leaves for texture.

Two versions of baked free-range eggs both hit the spot; either kaiserfleisch and parmesan or plump, juicy mushrooms and feta, baked in a rich sugo sauce, and served with plenty of bread for mopping up the pan.

They also do a delicious sweet black rice with coconut yoghurt and mango for those looking for something sweet.

Coffee-wise, Supreme supplies the house blend, with a rotating guest blend showcasing beans from the likes of Proud Mary (their ‘Ghost Rider’ was sweet, syrup-y and smooth, absolutely delicious).  Excellent baristas operating the bright green Slayer ensure consistent quality; I find the coffee here to be more consistent that at Cornershop.

So much more than just a mini-Cornershop, Wee Jeanie is a must-try in Yarraville.  Heads up though, they aren’t open on Sundays.
