Going wherever the wind blows me and enjoying the ride.

Having found several amazing cafes in street art areas, these days, I constantly find myself drawn like a magnet to little back alley places exhibiting street art, hoping I will find another locality worthy of adoration. Much to my delight I recently spotted St Edmonds Bar and Café in just such a location.

A delightful piece portraying a series of modern art birds caught my eye from the other end of the street and the clatter of dishes as I approached made me hopeful I had uncovered another hidden gem.

St Edmonds Exterior Art

St Edmonds occupies the space of a former garage that has been converted into a contemporary café/bar. Judging by the uniquely decorated interior, someone at this trendy sweetheart must have a doctorate in creative arts and design technology. A welcome space in the main entry of the café provides an invitingly warm place to escape the biting wind outside and warm up over a hot coffee.

Coat Hanger Magazine Rack

Potted plants hang in custom denim bags, scattered on the walls providing a living, photosynthesising, decorative feature. Coat hangers have been remodelled with a new purpose in mind and conveniently serve as a wall-side magazine rack.

Hanging Denim Plant Decor

The meals are just as artful as the décor and one of the specials immediately had my attention. Squid ink pasta with prawns, garlic, fresh chilli and baby spinach presents a colourful and gourmet dish.

St Edmond coffee is a stimulating blend that is likely to put some hair on your chest. Perfect for a pick-me-up in the dismal winter months.

Latte @ St Edmonds

Every day from 4-7pm is happy hour. Thursday night is the famous St Edmond's burger night, where a humble $20 bill will fetch you a burger and chips, plus a glass of wine or schooner. Gluten free and vegetarian options are available also. From 4pm on Sunday, you can listen to live music by local musician Ali Barter and Co.
