New Digs




Since I moved to Melbourne in 2000 I’ve mostly spent all my time in Richmond. I knew that stich of town like the back of my hand. I knew where to get the best breakfast and coffee. I knew where to get the best take-away. I knew where to drink and was part of the local barfly crew.

I’ve recently moved to Northcote.

I’m a little lost. Can you help me out? I’m just off High St. and I’m not quite au fait with the local gems.

Can you throw a few delights my way?

So far this is what I’ve covered:

NSC for good bar swell and some good ol’ fasion ‘rock’.
Wesley Anne – Pretty good food. Bad wine list. Good for a Sunday session.
Sigiri – Sri Lankan food is good.
Meine Leibe Pizza – haven’t been, but I hear it’s great. Who doesn’t love a this based pizza.
Wild Yak – good for some steamed buns and this wacky fungi added to their dishes. I like.

Perhaps you’ll notice A LACK OF COFFEE PLACES. Locals, I need some help here! I know where some of you live. Surely there’s a joint ‘round these parts that can brew a strong cup-a-Joe.

I’m also open to other insights round these parts. Let’s face it I love some grub.
