103 Albion Street, Brunswick East, VIC, 3057
The name is intriguing. A riff on music, birds, children? Whatever it means, neither the location nor the decor are giving it away.
Albion Street isn’t the most pastoral of Brunswick locations, but the one-time milk bar is a charming abode for this busy eatery, even if it looks a little run-down from the outside. Inside, however, there’s a good menu to choose from (albeit bereft of any ‘minor’ clues).
My coffee’s crema is a rich, sandy colour and the nose is toasty with a hint of clove. The texture and flavour can’t be faulted, with a long, bitter finish after a citrus and caramel dose.
If a complaint could be raised, it’d be the slightly sniffy service. But maybe in this post-modern world of the gritty uber-cool, that’s not an accident.
