north, north carlton
this little caf is on rathdowne street in north carlton and it looks the part: wonky wooden tables, retro chairs, hipster staff, INCREDIBLE FOOD SMELLS. and my food was quite delicious. i had a bagel with a poached egg on it.
but the coffee was atrocious. it was weak and watery but that wasn't the worst of it. it sort of tasted like...i'm not even sure. soap? perfume? just not coffee. i did think that if someone had served it to me saying it was dandelion coffee (which i've had before and quite enjoyed) then maybe i could have accepted that. but as a normal skinny latte? i couldn't drink it.
