A LITTLE PIECE OF HOME.
Having lived here in the states for well over a year now, I from time to time have a need for something close to home. So whilst wandering around on a Sunday afternoon, I found it. An Australian cafe!
Named after one of Melbournes iconic streets “Brunswick” has a wonderful vibe and boasts a really great granola(in fact the lady next to me had food envy when she saw mine come out!). Along with other great brunchy treats, like an avocado toast and other sandwiches.
After doing a little bit of research, I found there is a rising trend for Australian cafes setting up shop in New York. And New York is totally hearting it! An Australian cafe is best described to locals as a casual more stylish diner. Table service is included, but not as formal as a restaurant. What sets them apart is the friendly service by genuine Australian folk(hearing aussie accents puts a smile on my dial), really nice design, and a great relaxed atmosphere.
I used to frequent cafes a lot when I was back in Melbourne. The coffee culture is such a huge part of the lifestyle there, so it’s no wonder the aussies have brought it to the states to add something really great to the mix.
My love of cafe hopping started when I was a child, having memories of catching the tram with my mum down to a suburb called Balaclava and drinking the frothy foam on top of my aunties cappuccino.
Brunswick Cafe is a great little place to catch up with a friend for a cup of joe, or just sit on your laptop without a horde of people coming through the door and taking up every possible bench space! So the next time you are around Bedsty, or Prospect Park, definitely see what all the fuss it about!
