Another year, another new cafe to check out in Melbourne. Now that I've moved away from the University, it's a lot more effort than it used to be to check out places in the inner north. Having heard good things about this newly opened cafe though, I organised a brunch catch-up with a friend that I've seem all too little of in the last year.
The cool cafe seemed like the perfect escape from a somewhat unbearably warm morning. As my friend was running late (it was a lazy Sunday after all), I settled down with an aromatic long black and the morning paper. The staff were attentive and polite, and the wait was actually quite pleasant. It didn't hurt that the decor is charmingly cute.
Needless to say, I was very happy when this arrived:

My friend ordered the appropriately named Hulk Smash.
All-in-all, a nice addition to the North Melbourne cafe scene. I hope they get their outdoor seating license soon, though I'd rather sit outside in Autumn than in the middle of Summer.
