Hobba (Prahran, Melbourne) 11/2017

To the best of my knowledge there are lots of hoggas but only one Hobba, named apparently after the owners father.
Names aside this is a hugely popular no nonsense cafe. 

Formerly a tile factory it is simply outfitted, practical, largely unadorned space  in a large high ceilinged area,
.with a bit of 'philosophy' on one wall.
Service was slow perhaps because they were so busy.
One of their specialties, sous vide eggs Benedic on a bed of pulled pork was almost cold by the time it got to the table. 

Sixty two degrees is a bit too low a temperature for many people and I much prefer one hour at 68 degrees. The whites of these were just too soft. Pulled pork gets stucki n ones teeth too and I didn't like that either.
Bircher muesli on a bed of yoghurt was a dull dish although it looked quite nice.
There is a buzz about the place, most of their customers seemed to be in their early 20's, but it has little to offer older patrons who may not wish to be surrounded by noise.

Score: 13.25/20
