A cosy hidden cafe in Northcote. One would pass and not notice if it was not for the outside seating area. A rustic cafe offering a good variety of fresh breakfast menu. Staff are welcoming,friendly with a smile and wanting to ensure you have a good experience in their business. Only thing in my opinion only is to produce/provide a fraction stronger tastier coffee with the latte making. Lots of peope,lots of character. A good experience.
