Since moving to Melbourne, it's been a little hectic familiarising myself with city life and wrestling with public transport. However, the good news is I am finally living in the cafe capital of the world. I must admit, blogging about Melbourne cafes does frighten me a little, with so many to choose from and endless blogs to read about them. This is my personal take on the cafes I fall in love with along the way of becoming a true Melburnian.
Finding a disability friendly cafe has deemed to be difficult. It seems most 'hip' cafes are designed without this in mind. This has inspired me to blog about disabled friendly cafes more frequently, to help spread the word to people who enjoy the cafe culture just as much as Mum, but happen to be in a wheelchair.
Middle Eastern Eggs
Mitte has become my family's regular spot. It is just down the road from my sister's place, sitting unassumingly on a residential street. The space is limited inside, but with tables outside and ample parking, Mum can join in on the antics. With a puppy now in the family, Mitte is ideal. The summer months were spent here basking in the sun, laughing and enjoying good quality coffee.
The menu is extensive for how small the space is The middle-eastern poached eggs would hands down be my favourite dish. Two perfectly poached eggs on multigrain toast, a side of avocado and the most phenomenal chickpea bake in a rich and spicy tomato sauce, topped with goats feta, red onion, rocket and parsley. For the sweet tooth, the nut crumble and rhubarb would come in with a close second. My Mum's favourite? Homemade pikelets with lemon curd, brown sugar and maple syrup. Enough said.
Five reasons why I would go to Mitte:
1. Great place to take your pup, as there is a small amount of grass they can play in.
2. Great in summer months, where you can sit outside while enjoying a deliciously well-made coffee.
3. Mitte sits on a quiet residential street, with ample parking.
4. Wheelchair accessible but would only recommend outdoor seating.
