The Little Man Cafe
The Little Man cafe feels like an extension of your home. The staff greets its customers by name, and there’s a casual, languid atmosphere that encourages you to stay a while. It’s a vibe that owners Christina Morgan and Chi Teng Chi take great pride in.
The building used to host a dilapidated post office. Now it has a light, bright interior. It’s filled with eclectic pieces, including a plastic gold pineapple on the counter, and a small nutcracker soldier in a light fitting.
Morgan was inspired by the Scandinavian aesthetic. She opted for neutral wood colours and a lot of minimalist white. A good deal of the interior was sourced from overseas.
The Little Man’s strength is brunch. Its potato croquettes with poached eggs, mushroom, asparagus and hollandaise sauce are a steadfast favourite. The lunch menu includes a cold noodle dish with shredded omelette, ham, cucumber, cherry tomatoes; and shredded nori with house-made ponzu sauce.
