19 Leveson Street, North Melbourne, VIC, 3051
This bright and breezy, warehouse-style space in historic North Melbourne operates as a roastery and laid-back cafe that’s ideal for weekend brunching. Bring along your biggest and best appetite – or hangover – for the sizzling clay pot of cevapcici, smoky bacon, eggs, mushies, tomatoes, and house-made baked beans. Then restart your nervous system with a Di Bella espresso.
Mine is tangy and sharp, and loiters for a while on the palate before softening into Brazil nut and toffee flavours. A clean, grit-free brew, it boasts rich viscosity and feels clean in the mouth, with aromas of tobacco and spice. The latte chaser has a comforting, bready aroma and is well rounded with a biscuity flavour.
There are wines available by the glass (should brunch turn into an all-afternoon affair), but note that the kitchen closes at three. These guys love spreading the word about the bean and, as such, conduct regular coffee appreciation classes for small groups.
