Tucked away in Rathdowne Village, there's a simplicity at North Cafeteria that keeps this cafe churning out great breakfasts and well-balanced Supreme lattes.

With a minimalist fit out of barista bench and simple black and white styling to compliment the caricature mural wall, you could easily slouch yourself in a Knoll Tulip chair and hang around all day.

It’s the details that define this humble little cafe; a deft hand on the steam wand, cups individually stamped with their bird logo, black and white rugs waiting by the door for outdoor seats and junior items on the menu. The Reuben sandwich has a reputation it deserves, but the sardines are also hard to beat.

It’s a one-room wonder, so don’t be surprised if weekend mornings see you waiting your turn for a seat.
