Giddiup buttercup! With the sun shining and the birds singing, I could not think of anything better than a lunch date all by lonesome at the recently refurbed Tony Le Pony on Burwood Road…

Toneh Le Poneh

Toneh Le Poneh

Toneh Le Poneh, I just can’t say it without channelling my inner Godfather (you give it a go!)  But I digress.  Many of you know that I have been lovin’ this cafe that is oh so conveniently located opposite school.  With many a cheeky childhood memory in the ‘hood of Hawthorn, it was totes meant to be for owners James and Dave to have their very first stable in their hometown (3122 represent!)

The new fitout is thanks to Papa Tony Le Pony’s “connections” filled with vintage treasures found in Melbourne’s fabulous op shops…

Team Dolci Sapori or Team Modena?

Team Dolci Sapori or Team Modena?

Barista extraordinaire by day James recommends Dolci Sapori to those who love a bit of creamy goodness with their coffee (like lattes and cappucinos), whilst Modena are for those who are sweet enough and have not gone back from black (like espressos and long blacks)…

Muff love anyone?

Not about reinventing the wheel, Tony Le Pony’s menu is classic cafe food made from locally sourced seasonal produce with a bit of love <3

It's all in the details...

Please don’t tell my lover but have totally become infatuated with their rustic shelving!

How cute is this display near the entrance? I never seem to find stuff as cool as this whenever I trek down to Savers!  This horsie would have to be my fave #Bubbycanwekeephim?

I'm a fan *pun intended*

So many adorable details everywhere, especially the old school timber fans and whitewashed wooden ceilings…

Alfrescoish awesomeness

Check out their gorgeous back beer garden with baby orange trees!  This is probably where I’ll spend most of summer when I should be doing homework…

A little birdie has told me that they have also renovated upstairs for some function fun and look what I saw along the way #Iheartflowers

Tony Le Pony sure knows how to throw a partay, with many still recovering from the launch last Friday!  If you’re keen, you can have the exclusive function space for 25 of your peeps sitting down all formal, or 65 peeps for a cocktail soiree…

Soy yummy latte

Apart from soy lattes that rock your socks off, they also make very delectable dishes for breakfast, morning tea, lunch, merienda and word out on the street, dinner coming soon as well! Did I mention that they do catering as well? #winning

Rueben and I go waaay back

Rueben and I go waaay back

So I’d like to present to you the Rueben sandwich of corned beef, sauerkraut, swiss cheese & thousand island dressing on rye with pickles and beer battered fries on the side #soulfoodforreal

Do you believe in love at first sight, or should I walk by again?

Do you believe in love at first sight, or should I walk by again?

Was there any doubt that I would not finish off with a caramelised banana and cinnamon muffin?  Promise it had nothing to do with the fact that it smelled and sounded soo intoxicating, but purely just on cinnamon‘s brain boosting benefits!

Ciao for now siopao, happy drooling xoxo

  1. Wow if I hadn’t read your post I would never have known about the beer garden!!! How did I not know?! I will defiantly have to investigate this my self one afternoon when I too should be doing some homework related task instead. They do have awesome coffee here though and I really want that muffin!
    Look forward to the next one and new cafes that I can try :)

  2. Oh my goodness… what a beautiful place! I can’t believe I go to Swinburne and I have NEVER been there before!! I think your photos are just lovely. How did you get him to let you take the photos? Can we please go there tomorrow!? xx

    • Hehe thanks Julia! I actually asked James beforehand and he was soo accommodating. In saying that, I don’t usually ask as most do not seem to mind (or maybe just used to) wannabe bloggers snapping away in their venues. It’s a bit of a toughie as you want to show an unbiased view but at the same time want your photos to look as purdy as possible! Lucky it wasn’t hard to do at TLP as their interior is so awesome ;) And yes, lock me in Eddie for lunchies tomorrow xoxo

  3. Just got my first coffee here. Just not sure about the coffee, had better, slow on service a little for me. Nice place (design etc) Will give it another try

  4. I love the concept and how they’ve attended to every little detail. However, Tony Le Pony really needs a new barista and perhaps create a marketing plan in order to get more Swinburne Uni Customers :)

    • Could not agree with you more Diana in regards to an eMarketing proposal for the cafe ;) As for the barista, they just need more rather than new to keep up with us during break time me thinks xoxo

    • Thanks Pao, I personally always find it hard to choose between the Rueben and Steak Philly #firstworldproblems xoxo

  5. Thanks for sharing such a cool post. I am a big fan of Tony la Pony too. Your post reminds me why I love the place not only their coffee but their nice interior too. I had no idea they have balcony outside and sandwich looks good too, I have only had coffee and muffins. I cant wait to eat nice sandwich on the balcony during nice warm day :) Maybe with beer.

    • Yes I cant wait until summer time to check out the outdoor area and chill out in the sunshine! Maybe we should all go there for our end of semester celebrations xoxo
