Shying away from the usual hot spot locations for a cafe, friends Chris McLoughlin and Matt Millen (ex- Kinfolk) found an old shed in an inner pocket of West Melbourne and converted it into a bright little lunch spot, Roller Door.
Roller Door brings a strong focus on ethical produce to their surprisingly ample breakfast and lunchtime menu. A wide selection of breakfast dishes including eggs rustic – free range poached eggs with garlic-butter roasted mushrooms, capers, blanched broccolini, torn basil & crumbled goat’s fetta – are available and for lunch there is an impressive array of freshly made ciabatta rolls.
With its striking illustration on the exterior, the Roller Door is quite hard to miss. While a lot of traffic comes from local businesses and commuters from nearby North Melbourne station, there are a fair number of travelers here as well. On a sunny day, it's lovely to sit down and hang out a little in this relaxed and welcoming garage space.
