NEWTOWN SOCIAL CLUB
Melbourne, Victoria

Top10 Image
This is one club that you will want to join. Set on the edge of Fitzroy's main drag, Newtown Social Club verges on grunge in attitude and appearance. This cafe's aesthetic is 1950s kitsch memorabilia, black vinyl chairs and art installation boxes. Coffee is served the way true coffee aficionados like it - hot, rich and strong. There is also a concise menu of simple dishes, but what you're really here for is the brew.

PROFILE BY BEST RESTAURANTS

Independently hip without desiring to please, Newtown Social Club stands out from the crowd. This popular cafe is where jaded Fitzroy locals retreat from weekend crowds for some of the best coffee on busy Brunswick Street.

For breakfast, order the spicy baked beans on toast with fetta or the poached pears and quinces with muesli. The lunch menu includes a soup of the day. Get in early as once the pot is empty, that's it. Don't rely on the blackboard menu, ask the staff what's available or look in the display cabinet to see the selection of pides on offer. They are all good, especially the artichoke heart, olive tapenade and bocconcini. You'll also find toasted bagels, baguettes and vegetarian rice paper rolls on the menu. An eclectic selection of sweets will arouse the curiosity. There are little Bertha's cupcakes, all demure and coy in candy pink, ginger bread bears, rugelachs and lemon and buttermilk tarts. And the locals are right, the coffee is good.
