Padre Coffee Brunswick East

The Padre outlet that birthed a small empire.

438-440 Lygon Street, Brunswick East

Wild Life Bakery

Huw Murdoch's fantastic slow-fermented sourdough loaves are well worth picking up to bring home, but we recommend heading to Wild Life for a meal if you can. Inside this striking converted warehouse, you'll find a mostly vegetarian menu where toasties are the heroes.
