Dudley Street Espresso

Having walked past this cafe several times before work, I decided it was time to experience the food for myself.

Though the cafe doesn't have a massive menu to choose from, the food is fresh and delicious. The chicken panini (with just the
right amount of garlic aioli) and raspberry cake were both excellent. The staff are friendly and professional.

Being a tea drinker, I can't personally vouch for the quality of the coffee, though if the constant stream of smiling people leaving with coffee cups in tow is anything to go by, I would say the cafe has a lot of satisfied customers. I suspect many of the locals come here for their regular caffeine fix.

This cafe has an excellent vibe and loads of atmosphere, despite being quite small. A range of interesting collectables which are for sale line the walls and surfaces, giving it an eclectic, welcoming feel.

You can either sip your coffee and eat lunch at the communal table or pull up a stool on the front or side windows. Feel free to
linger over a newspaper or book.

If there is one small drawback to this lovely establishment, it would be its position. While the cafe is named after Dudley Street, it is situated on busy Ipswich Road. If there is anything that can help drown out the sound of trucks rumbling past, it's the ambience of this charming cafe. Nabbing a seat overlooking Dudley Street, instead of Ipswich Road will help alleviate some of the noise.

Dudley Street Espresso is open for breakfast and lunch Tuesday to Friday. Open Saturday till 1pm. Closed Sunday and Monday.
