Eddy and Wills

Eddy and Wills takes the cafe experience back to basics. An ethos of simple food, great coffee and even better service means the homey venue has built quite the base of regular visitors, despite its quiet residential location.

The menu rotates through a range of dishes, but items such as eggs Benedict with potato rosti and the breakfast tasting plate have proved too popular to ditch. Coffee is supplied by Brunswick's Code Black.

Inside, the walls are plastered with a collection of old newspapers found in the roof during renovations. Co-owner Matthew Colman contributed a special edition on Queen Elizabeth II's coronation, which was once owned by his grandma Doreen.

The space was originally a butcher; a feel the pair worked with rather than against. Polished concrete floors and timber features enhance the industrial vibe, broken up by splashes of greenery and colourful furniture. A small, dog-friendly courtyard is perfect for catching some summer rays.
