Everyone knows that a cozy little cafe is the best place to sit and read a book or write a letter.  You can take your time and no one’s going to bother you.  It’s also exactly where you want to take a friend for a long overdue catchup.  We’ve found a little cafe on Brunswick St in Fitzroy that is perfect for all of those things.

 

Slowpoke cafe is a little hidey hole that’s tucked away at the city end of the Brunswick St, just a couple doors down from the laundromat; basically the perfect place to sit and wait for your socks to wash.

 

As soon as you’ve got your flat white and your boiled egg with toast soldiers sitting on top of your newspaper, you are feeling right at home.

 

This intimate little space serves great food, coffee and atmosphere.  With full length front windows, it is filled with light and as soon as you’ve got your flat white and your boiled egg with toast soldiers sitting on top of your newspaper, you are feeling right at home.

 

The menu here is mostly organic/biodynamic and free range foods; a smashed avocado with chilli and mint is definitely a favourite, or there’s also a selection of home baked cakes and sweets to choose from.

 

There’s nothing better than a cafe that puts love and effort into what they do and Slowpoke is definitely one of those.  This little gem is one you’ll keep coming back to.
