The Melbourne suburb of Newport is noted for its access to facilities that support lifestyle and family but it also has some awesome places for a late brunch or full on lunch. So in between hunting for your next investment, try one of these great cafés.
This is a great café for any time of day but our lunch was simply fantastic. Everyone was happy with their order but the Le’ Royale was the pick of the bunch for those who ordered it. The meat was cooked perfectly (even the fussy ‘must be medium not rare’ eater was happy with how the burger arrived). A few of our party were a little more health conscious and were well catered for with salad choices (the super salad was – well – super). Food you enjoy is a great start but the service at Leroy’s was excellent as well, giving us all reason to return.
The Pint of Milk
Don’t be put off by the size of the crowd at this café (yes, it is popular). They have efficient and friendly service down pat. If you are not sure what to order, don’t hesitate to get a recommendation as the staff know their menu and are really passionate about making sure you enjoy what they serve. The Pint of Milk has a reputation for great coffee and they didn’t let us down the day we were there. The food was delicious too!
Odd Spot Café
There’s nothing odd about this café (other than its name). The atmosphere is always friendly, as is the service. The Odd Spot goes with a brunch menu, so you are covered pretty much all day for great food. A slow combustion fire makes it the perfect place for winter but you’ll keep going back for the food. If you are a fan of chai you are in for a treat – the Odd Spot’s home-made spice Chai tea is probably the best you’ll find.
