CAFFE ROMEO

319 Doncaster Road, Balwyn North, VIC, 3104

Caffe Romeo shows why cafes, like books, and possibly even people, shouldn’t be judged by appearances. Hidden away in the corner of a nondescript suburban shopping strip, Romeo relies on word of mouth rather than flash decor or splashy architecture. And the word around town is that the coffee here is good – very good – and beloved by locals.

Run by Italian-born coffee purist Stefano and his wife Vicky, the focus is unashamedly on coffee. There’s no menu (just a few pastries), but the place is always busy. Coffee is roasted in house, in a Ferrari-red roaster, and the premium house blend is created from an international selection primarily from South America.

The short black is an easy-sipping example of a great espresso: a fruity, floral aroma; gentle and sweet on the palate. The latte is a harmonious blend of a slightly nutty coffee base with smooth, creamy milk. Appearances be damned – Romeo is winning hearts.
