Station St Cafe in Nunawading - Best Steak Sandwich Ever?

The locals love this place. A gem since opening in 2009. Station Street Cafe and Wine Bar is opposite the Nunawading Train Station at 26 Station Street... I reckon it's worth a train ride from anywhere in Melbourne to experience the delights of this place! Or park out the front!

Managed to get to Station Street Cafe and Wine Bar twice in a day after heavy recommendations...

For a start the coffee is crazy good! Creamy latte... Serious coffee haven. There's some theory going around that the coffee quality diminishes the further from the Melbourne CBD you get... (Perhaps Mythbusters should test this).  In this case the coffee is superior here - and blows away such urban myths! I love their jumbo take away mega mega coffee! Could take all morning to drink it!

My wife and I had breakfast at this place and were not disappointed. The egg and bacon foccacia was a sensation! It was so delicious, gourmet and massive! Two eggs! Loads of smoky bacon! Great bbq sauce! Best I've had in Melbourne and I've had a few... My wife took a look at my foccacia and I ended up having to share it...

But I must tell you about the steak sandwich when we and friends came back for lunch! On the same day! Is this Melbourne's best steak sandwich? Gourmet perfection! You get a generous piece of quality steak cooked wonderfully and still juicy, with great combination of quality bread (which is important), that great bacon again, mushrooms, tomato, lettuce, a great chutney, an awesome mayo - served with shoestring fries...

It's a huge dish but again no compromise in quality. Friend from interstate and I were trying to work out whether to pick it up to eat or use the cutlery... I'm a 'pick up your burger' man - but this beast is a biggie to attempt that... My friend went the cutlery. I wrestled the beast - and duly compromised on table manners...

My wife had the egg and bacon foccacia for lunch - it really is a good lunch option...

Other friends from interstate had the salad selection - the lemon pepper and chorizo salad brought high acclaim... As did the Saganaki... Everyone was happy with their great lunch!

Loved the service! Station Street Cafe and Wine Bar delivers great friendly service only adding to the experience!

These guys are great! Not only attentively delivering quality cafe delights but up for some chirpy banter. Shades of Hamish and Andy!

The ambience is also great! I'm used to small city cafes in Melbourne's laneways... This is a large cafe with cool flooring and artwork on the walls... A couple of large tables are handy to accomodate groups.

The redgum table weighing 750kg (according to the cafe website) is a local icon and seats 16 people...

So breakfast gets a big tick, as does lunch - keen to come back here for dinner soon!

And these guys do catering....

A favourite among locals we loved Station Street Cafe and Wine Bar... Surely this is a stand out cafe in the region, but also in the whole of Melbourne! Will be returning!

Did I mention the steak sandwich?
