Find a park in Barkly Square and you'll be sure to stumble upon a wonderful cafe within a 5-minute walk radius. One of these little gems would be Brunswick Foodstore.
The cafe, when I visited, was quieter, only because it was a weekday morning. Compared to some of the other cafes around the area, Brunswick Foodstore exudes a cosy and familiar ambience in its interior and service. Compared to green refectory, this cafe is one that you won't miss too easily. Look out for the beautiful yellow bicycle mounted on the brick wall and there it'll be! It's yellow-framed menus and yellow-painted floors will also be sure to grab your attention their way.
The latte I had was simple. Slightly too creamy for my liking and from memory, I do remember the milk tasting slightly too bitter. Unfortunately, just a little underwhelming for me.

And one of the best memories of all from this trip? I discovered my love for who is one of my favourite Melbournian bands on Bourke Street busking, Woodlock.
