Sometimes names can be misleading, but you’ve got the right impression at this place. A humming, funky cafe and restaurant on High Street, The Espresso Room roasts their own beans on site and pull shots of some of the most addictively aromatic coffee you’ll find in Northcote. Open early every morning, it’s a no-brainer for the day’s first caffeine fix, but that is only the start. The Espresso Room also has incredible food, of course for the Melbourne institution Sunday brunch but also for an impressive lunch, whether you’re trying to impress yourself, someone special or a business delegation. The menu ranges from hefty and hearty (pulled pork and calamari sliders on black brioche, for instance) to dainty and delicate (the macarons here are to die for), so it can really suit any mood and hunger level.

Get a table before they're gone
Apart from the great food and coffee, I appreciated the layout of the cafe. The table arrangements and low partition wall ensured privacy, even at a busy time.
Great food service and value go there anytime tops t
