Nestled alongside the much loved State Library with all its 19th century charm is an equally charming cafe by the name of Mr Tulk which is aptly named as Mr Tulk was the first ever librarian of the State Library.
You can enter the cafe either via the library itself or directly from the street; disability access is well equipped and the whole venue is welcoming to all ages. Plus there's a tram stop directly outside making the location even more convenient. On a sunny day there's a lovely outdoor seating area with plenty of shade if needed and inside there's casual seating as well as restaurant area where you can kick-back and read a newspaper over a coffee and some great tasting food.
As for the food, Mr Tulk keeps it basic, but still tasting great. The usual modern Australian breakfast and lunch options are available along with specials board and portion sizes are at a good level that you don't feel the need to lay out on the lawn and take a nap whilst your food digests...Although that could still be appealing.
Either before or after you're done with Mr Tulk, you could even call into the libraries mini book store which has an impressive selection of books available.So if you're looking for a different way to get your academic juices flowing, call into Mr Tulk and relax, recharge, plan or simply daydream as you tuck into some great food and coffee in the heart of the CBD.
