I walked further for Brother Baba Budan, but it seemed too far off, so I decided to go to Hardware Societe. Hardware Societe was over crowded at 10 in the morning and a waiting for 30 minutes. Decided to skip this one.eventually walked back and went to Affogato. A small little cafe with seating on the street outside on the stone cobbled street. There was no place outside so we sat inside. A quite and cozy cafe with wooden benches with small cusions. On the extreme end was a hand painting on the wall of a girl. There were racks above the tables with small cups, books, handicrafts. The kitchen itself was in the same room. A bit cluttered but thats what made it cosy.
A latte, a chocolate milkshake, a vegetarian omelette with spinach, grilled tomatoes, mushroom and a hash brown as sides. The other thing we ordered was the french toasts with fresh fruits and maple syrup. We had requested for a seat outside as we settled inside. There was something that just made us settled and comfortable inside. The coffee was strong brew. My brother and me started sipping the chocolate milkshake. Let me tell you, I have come close to very few places in Australia where I have got the perfect chocolate shake and ice coffee and this was one of those places. Thick blend , sweet and topped with a generous serving of ice cream.
The vegetarian omlette -hit the spot. Lightly beaten eggs, pan fried, cooked with mushroons, tomato, chhese, garlic, red onion, spinach and fetta, served with rustic toast topped with butter. I had additionally ordered grilled tomatoes, butter fried mushrooms, spinach and hash brown as sides. Perfect taste, mind blowing. I can assure you if you finish this, you would be orgasmic or on seventh heaven. Each bite was perfect.
Highly Recommended. I'd visit here anytime again.
All this in just AUD 25. This rocks. Melbourne rocks.
