436 Glenhuntly Road, Elsternwick, VIC, 3185
Welcome to the old curiosity shop! Ladders support strings of teapots, signposts flash proclamations across the walls, and big chunky benches abound. Part coffee museum, part bric-a-brac store, everything at Loco Coffee is a little battered but bursting with enthusiasm.
Waiters bustle to and fro, regulars crack loud jokes, and a glass-fronted museum piece of a display case holds a drool-inducing ensemble of caramel biscuits. It’s hard not to feel totally at home here, especially if you order the eggs on hash -a real hangover special.
The coffee is just another reason to settle in. My espresso is smooth and well balanced, mellow with a hint of woodiness which suits the surrounds. And the latte is an artwork in itself: from the thick, full body to the soft milk-chocolate finish, not to mention the delicate face etched into the milk froth. The barista clearly loves his art, and so do we.
