Radiating a lounge-room feel, the difficulty at Tin Pot Cafe is fighting the urge to pad around in socks and make yourself at home. Arranged like the fantasy share house you always wanted to live in, this North Fitzroy restaurant is a jumble of 70s kitchen tables and lampshades of varying shades of green and orange.

Arranged like the fantasy share house you always wanted to live in, Tin Pot is a jumble of 70s kitchen tables and lampshades of varying shades of green and orange. Light floods onto weathered dark wooden floorboards from St Georges Road, where old money meets new bohemia. Its graceful hodge-podge works well, settling itself somewhere between a chic and clumsy kind of cool, and it’s a popular coffee spot for lone newspaper readers, families with well-dressed toddlers and window gazing day-dreamers.

The menu is made up of simple comfort-based food, says owner and cook, Lidio Larocca. Dinner is based on a specials menu that changes daily, and both lunch and dinner champion all the standard favourites. Most popular is the steak sandwich with grilled onions, honey cup mustard, rocket and shaved parmesan served on a toasted pide with garlic and rosemary potatoes. Also worth trying is the avocado and tuna salad with fresh coriander leaves, toasted seeds, lemon and tamari dressing served with steamed jasmine rice. Prices range from $8-$14 for lunch mains and breakfast ranges from $3.50 - $12.50. And if nothing else, it’s worth checking this place out purely because they have mastered the very elusive soy latte.
