PROFILED FOR DE GROOTS MEDIA
This bright and simple cafe off Lygon Street has tiled floors, colourful walls,and pavement seating.
Bianco, nero, rosso are just some of the colours on the feature walls, and many of the regulars here will be practicing their Italian since the Centre of Italian studies is just around the corner.
Breakfast is a highlight here, especially since it starts so early, from full eggs with the lot to a simple toasted sandwich or fruit. The range of food choices is written on boards above the sandwich and hot food counters with an additional board near the door giving the weekly specials. Additional benefits are the fair trade coffee, the pleasing range of leaf teas served in glass plungers, and the scattering of newspapers on the counter.
