A distinct Fitzroy café, Arcadia is a hub for casual eating in a friendly atmosphere. The all-day breakfast sets the scene here, with many opting for lemon ricotta hotcakes or Middle Eastern spiced eggs long into lunchtime. For those who can’t decide, a menu’s worth of specials written behind the bar will reveal what’s good, and there may even be some fresh baked blueberry muffins left to obscure your view.

PROFILED BY DE GROOTS MEDIA
Owner Peter Knowles describes Arcadia’s menu as an “open cookbook” – a collection of recipes from no particular region or country that look scrumptious and taste delicious. Knowles renovated and revamped this previously rundown Gertrude Street hideaway after taking over in 2005, and rejuvenated it with a simple concept founded on fresh produce, robust herbs and homely service. All savoury and sweet dishes are on display, made in-house and on a daily basis, with most ingredients sourced from small or local providers. Knowles highlights his chicken Everest and famous burritos as crowd favourites, but is also particularly proud of his special mayonnaise that is the secret finish to several dishes.

Arcadia is a great pre- or post-gallery stopover with its modern and open space encouraging a social and light-hearted atmosphere. The selection of tables on offer will accommodate small or large groups – families, pushers, prams and toddlers are all welcome at Arcadia and make up a large portion of the day-time clientele, while busy suits stop in for breakfast and lunch.
