A few weeks back we had a lovely brekky at the small and sweet Slowpoke cafe, 157 Brunswick St, Fitzroy. Its been a good 10 years since I have eaten over that side of town and it was really nice to be out there early on a Sunday morning while everyone started to wake up.
We scored the great front table which was bathed in morning sun and provided an opportunity for a few random street dwellers to ask for donations through the large window....this cafe was warm with share table and a few little tables at the front, a big open fire down the back and more seating as well as an outdoor part. Greeting us was smell of fresh coffee brewing and warm kitchen smells.....good morning!
Simple food of team friends avocado and feta with a squeeze of lemon and chilli twist....
Ricotta with softly marinated cherry tomatoes, a touch a rosemary and s and p heaped on top of fresh tasty bread. Plenty of super smooth coffee, hot chocs and babychinos. A really nice cafe, friendly staff and a good place to take kids if you go early. They even have a copy of Mr Slow in the loo. This place gets 3 sugar lumps out of 5.
