Coffee, bread & whimsical decor on Lygon Street
If you ever find yourself in Eastern Brunswick, this friendly little cafe is worth a visit. It's got pleasant staff, a homely feel and such pleasingly whimsical decor as one comes almost to expect from the small cafes of Melbourne's inner-north.

Kind of bleak on the outside

Cosy on the inside

The seating out the front is not so appealing, as the sidewalk is quite narrow on this part of Lygon St, placing you close to the road. But this is more than made up for by the seating out the back. The door at the rear of the shop opens onto an exceptionally long alley between brick building and wooden fence, leading to an attractive and rather eccentric garden. The ever beleaguered smokers among us will be saddened while sensitive lungs rejoice, as the garden is a smoke-free zone.

To the garden!

The coffee at Sugardough is okay, and the fetta cheese and avocado on toast my friend and I once had there for breakfast was delicious my friend agreed, even though he was denied his vital dose of nicotine. The quiche and pies they have on display look tasty as well.

Well, this is rather nice.

Just look at those plates!

As the name might suggest, the place also serves as a bakery the fresh bread is very good, coming in such varieties as sourdough, five seed loaf and olive loaf. But take heed! the loaves tend to harden and go stale pretty quickly, so you'll want to eat them in the first day or two.

Swing by next time you're in the area.

Outside doesn't seem like the safest place to hang plates. One already has taken the brunt of some accident.
