The Sageleaf is a small restaurant - one of many established in the old shops along a usually busy street in Hawthorn East. With a simple, but pleasant decor, we found it cosy and comfortable. Where the Sageleaf excels is the food. Across our party of 6, we had a variety of entrees, mains and deserts - all excellent. Although... More

We went to Sageleaf as a part of a group. Out in Hawthorn on a very ordinary stretch of road, this little bistro serves up a brief menu of great character & spread of ingredients. Beetroot salad with goats cheese croquettes, duck confit were memorable. BYO option. And great value. Food only for two about $140.
