It was very difficult to find coffee in Melbourne airport that was excellent but also used glass or china cups. The amount of waste that must come from all the other businesses using take away cups for sit down customers is pretty bad.

It is very well set up and has a real Italian feel and the array of cakes and pastries is impressive. The coffee was good but fairly standard but worth a visit to see how it can be done well Italian style even in Melbourne.

If you want real parmesan, cut from the block, grated
over your pasta with a twist of style, this is the
place. Until recently, this neighbourhood was home to
the notorious ‘Carlton Crew,’ a pseudo mafia who
started their day with a local espresso. They are
gone, but the espresso still runs strong in this
Little Italy which has something for everyone.
Starched white tablecloths, candles, pizza the way
