Best Cafes in Northcote

Updated 1 month ago


  • This cafe with a hidden kids’ area welcomes dogs and serves breakfast gnocchi and sticky-date hotcakes.

  • Boris Portnoy's baked creations are influenced by classic recipes and by his time cheffing in some of the world's restaurants. You might find anything from gianduja babka buns to Czech honey cakes here. Add in coffee by Everyday and some of the best sourdough in town, and it's no wonder it's always so busy.

  • A pun-tastic cafe with a Bali-inspired vibe.

  • Locals love this one for its simple food, reliable coffee and pleasant courtyard.

  • This organic cafe serves an entirely vegan and raw menu. Chef-owner Yoko Inoue's cooking showcases the benefits of macrobiotic and organic raw food. Although most of the menu takes its cues from Japan, Inoue often just cooks what she feels, so dishes such as beetroot spaghetti and raw lasagne are common.

  • Enter through a red door for good coffee and a reprieve from your busy city life.

  • Melba organic coffee and a Middle-Eastern inspired menu.
