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.

Hmmm..Northcote is not really known for it's yummy restuarants etc but theres some Ok places on High St. south of Arthurton Rd. Westgarth at the bottom of High St. is a gem....ie; good coffee. Otherwise I'm afraid it's Nth. Fitzroy for lots of Cafes, Bars, Restuarants etc. North Fitzroy, unbeknownst to many is the Navel of the Universe!

For coffee try Alphabet City in Westgarth, opposite the Westgarth Picture Palace. Yum.

Welcome to my neighbourhood, Sugar!

This is extremely late but if yer still lookin, there's good coffee at a place near meine leiber and the fish and chip shop....I'm not sure what it's called but it's tiny, has pastries in the window and awesome wood panelling on the inside.

Silly Yaks is just near the Westgarth Cinemas too. Excellent coffee. Lemon Mirengue Pie, delish. Eggs never yet cooked rock hard!

The name may give away to the cluey that they specialise in coeliac (homophone, there... see, very clever :) gluten free stuff. If that happens to be a thing, you're in heaven. If not, no matter, it's all good.

In Edinburgh and recently left the confines of delightful Helen St, Northcote. I know it's VERY LATE but I was shocked to read from April '06 that someone recommended Sigiri. I have a Sri Lankan background and this place has the worst-tasting food, slowest service and at times dodgiest overcharging. Go to the restaurant opposite Safeway on Smith St - it has the best (and close to homestyle)SL banquet a couple of times a week and is a trendy cafe the rest of the time. Funnily enough I can't recall its name right now.
For something different, try NQR for its yummy Greek yoghurts and Lambs if so inclined for its souvalaki (not the giant sized one - after a big night at NSC!).You've probably found these things out by now!
