Miss Jackson: find it and enjoy it
How many times I have walked in this area, and how many times I rode my bicycle in this little street, well, I always missed this place. They have a small front courtyard but you cannot see it from outside, and the bar is on a mezzanine floor. The space outside has a rusted tall iron-made fence, that gives really a touch of arty to the place, but unfortunately, at the same time, tends to hide it from outside, therefore you really need to know where is the place. Add also the address, that is 2/19 Grey Street, to make even more confusing the search of this little café. I lived in the St.Kilda area for 4 years and I missed it, mostly because I could not see it. Now that I left this area, here I am back, willing to have a nice breakfast with a good coffee. I am lucky and there is a free table outside, with a beautiful sunny day, a little alcove in the middle of Gray Street area. There is silence, there are lots of newspapers and the service is so prompt that I hardly open the first page of The Age that I get served my latte, wow, what a start. I order a Spanish Breakfast with chorizo (14$), which is most probably the most expensive dish, but I am chorizo addicted and I can’t stop myself. The menu is simple, with an average selection of sandwiches and cooked dishes, actually it looks really good. Once my eggs arrive in a little paella pan, they look gorgeous, and they taste even better. They are very filling and the breakfast fits just well with my latte. I am very happy. I want to check also the bar inside, because, unfortunately, in winter will be the main place, once the cooler wind will arrive. A bit disappointing I must say, but that is a personal feeling of course. It seems to perfect, too white and the bar is not full of coffee bags as I like to see. The walls are a bit too empty, almost minimalistic. I would have expected something different, because I built up expectations during my fantastic breakfast and mostly because we are in the middle of St.Kilda and I would have expected something more grunge.
