"Don't Worry, Be Appy" commands the slogan on the front step as you enter Appy Eatery. And really, why wouldn't you be happy? Situated in Elgin Street - still central, but out of the hubbub of Lygon Street, Appy Eatery feels immediately comfortable and welcoming. Open for six months, the decor is new and fresh, the concept (according to hospitality specialist Ryan Winston, who recently joined the team) minimalist. It features off-white walls, blonde timber tables and stools, padded bench seats along one wall, with perhaps one extravagant furnishing, an impressive, large spoked light fitting at the front of the cafe.
We sat in the front window, to enjoy the natural light streaming in. The coffees were quick to arrive, decorated with some pretty coffee art.
