Hamlet on Charlton's cool black and white shop front can be found tucked in behind the Ascot laundromat.
The outdoor courtyard is filled with umbrellas, tables and benches from which to enjoy a light breakfast or lunch and wicked home-baked treats.
Popular menu choices include their lush Smoothie Bowls. loaded sourdough (with toppings of banana, honey, peanut butter and mixed seeds or mushrooms and grated parmesan) and build your own salads.
They also serve a smooth cup of Tim Adams Specialty Coffee, a selection of refrigerated drinks, and Teadrop Teas including Honeydew Green and Lemongrass & Ginger.
Be sure to check out the secret alcove inside or make the most of the dog-friendly section of the courtyard, complete with fresh water bowls.
Need to know - Hamlet on Charlton is located opposite Eagle Farm Racecourse and there is street parking available along leafy Charlton St.
