the estelle

sounds like a lovely place. will definitely be adding this little gem to my over-flowing list of things to do on the weekend. so much to do, so little time ...

The Estelle
Where: 243 High St, Northcote
When: Tues-Thurs 8am-11pm, Fri-Sat 8am-midnight, Sun 9am-11pm
Contact: 9489 4609

The Estelle is a new cafe, two doors down from Joe's Shoe Store. In the time it took me to type that, they sold seventeen coffees and a baked eggs boogaloo, so I suggest you get down there quick sticks before you're standing in a queue the length of High Street. And now, six reasons to stay in line:
  • Velvety coffee in beautiful, vintage cups.
  • Tapas-style food that will never try to tell you a baked cheese sandwich is a croque monsieur.
  • The owner, Josh, grew up in Coolangatta and has magicked a fit-out based on his memories of the fibro houses he BMXed past on the way to school.
  • Outdoor tables big enough for almost 300 ashtrays.
  • A 100% edible garden (snacks!)
  • Open when assholes want breakfast; also open when you want breakfast.
