Need to refuel? Roll into Stalled Espresso, a cafe that brings effortless cool and neighbourly vibes to Albion’s auto mechanic heartland.
Beneath the cafe’s high ceilings and exposed rafters, cheery terrariums and succulents dot the shelves, baked goods line the counter and a crowd-pleasing mix of newspapers and magazines are stacked at wooden communal tables.
Stalled is a great spot to catch up on some reading over a coffee. If you’re after more than a snack, check out the simple but satisfying menu, offering staples such as a classic smashed avocado on toast; dairy-free bircher; and marinated cherry tomato bruschetta and fresh daily salad specials.
There’s a real community feel here – it’s the kind of place where the staff remember your order, and its proximity to a dance school and rugby club makes it a great family-friendly spot.
