Coffee place: A little bird told meMonday, December 09, 2013
Such a lovely interior space! Love the spacious yet minimal design, clean and peaceful. I have since learnt that the owner/barista hails from my hometown Christchurch, NZ, and since moving to Melbourne he has worked for some of the very top Melbourne cafes such as Seven Seeds and Brother Baba Budan.
We had originally sought this cafe out since they sell the famous Lune Croissanterie croissants. They were good but I found that perhaps I had been hyped up a bit too much and was slightly disappointed. Was more satisfied with the visual goodness in the cafe. The communal table, the mint green coffee cups and saucers. It was a serene morning experience.
So, turns out that those croissants weren't Lune's after all. Not since mid-2013 (see the comment below). Well, one good thing is that I had found a cute little cafe, with good coffee, at least. The other good thing would be that now I would have to check out the real deal in Elwood/Patricia Coffee Brewers, soon!
