221d Blyth Street, Brunswick East, VIC, 3057
New Day Rising is small; very small. Three tables and a window counter leave limited spots to park yourself, but a steady flow of patrons gives you a good chance of nabbing a seat. The Inner North cafe uniform of blonde wood and minimalist decor suits the cramped conditions, while the atmosphere is hip but friendly. Don’t try to bring a pram in here, but babies and kids (if they can find a seat) are certainly welcome. Though miniscule, the kitchen manages to produce an impressive array of hip, homey food, such as the CLT: a tasty combo of smoked coconut, rocket, tomato and avocado on a bagel base.
The Five Senses beans produce an espresso with a mild aroma and a light body. Don’t expect a punchy cup – enjoy the subtle emergence of its sweet floral flavour with ginger notes, which strengthens and lengthens with subsequent sips. This cafe may be small, but it’s not to be overlooked.
