There'll be queues, but it promises to be worth it
As a follow up to the already outrageously popular Top Paddock and Two Birds One Stone, the third dining hot spot The Kettle Black has opened in South Melbourne.
The Kettle Black offers quintessential Australian fare with a bit of a twist.
Recently opened in South Melbourne, The Kettle Black.
Recently opened on South Melbourne's Albert St, The Kettle Black offers the good food and great coffee that's brought so much acclaim to the owner's prior establishments.
While rather minimal inside, the cafe, located in the new apartment complex, Fifty Albert offers a lot for such a minimal interior. White clean walls, marble interiors and of course the obligatory communal dining table that Melbournites have grown to love.
Owners Nathan Toleman, Tim James, Sam King, and Jesse Mctavish are the men behind this fab little space and they go above and beyond typical cafe fare. A hot favourite already is the the King Island crayfish roll with yuzu mayo and coastal spinach. You'll also find items like Flinders Island wallaby, Burnham Beeches bread with a house-made butter to temp you.
There's sure to be a queue at The Kettle Black as it's barely a week old.
