About the restaurant
Matte Black Cafe has bestowed Essendon with a coffee outlet that can match Melbourne’s very best. Employing unique blends of specialty roasts, Matte Black Cafe take coffee very seriously and the results are as velvety, aromatic and invigorating as expected. The food is by no means to be taken lightly, though. With influence from Mediterranean flavours and platter-style dining, Matte Black Cafe dishes up an eating experience unique to Mt Alexander Road, whether for a hearty breakfast (it’s hard to pass on the vegetarian omelette with tomato, mushroom, caramelised onion and capsicum on crunchy sourdough) or a superb lunch – if you’re thinking fancy, the Scotch fillet steak is unbeatable, and if you’re in a group we strongly recommend a selection of Matte Black’s awesome char grill specialties, from lamb kofte and chicken skewers to marinated calamari and mussels.
