Unlike the lively flamenco dance that shares its name with this North Melbourne cafe, the patrons of Fandango prefer a gentler pace and can be found spending slow afternoons drinking well-made Coffee Supreme espresso in the beautiful sun-soaked courtyard.
Fandango attracts an interesting mix of nearby office workers, university students and local regulars, all attracted by the cosy atmosphere of this nook cafe that you could easily miss if you walked by too fast.
You could be forgiven for confusing Fandango with a neighbourhood milk bar or fish and chip shop, but pull aside the plastic strips hanging from the door frame, and the cafe’s charms become apparent. Have a seat and try one of their simple but delicious toasted sandwiches or their Bircher muesli. But don’t be surprised to find yourself sitting in the same spot a few hours later, wondering where all that time went.
