Lunch at the Kettle Black Cafe

The Kettle Black Cafe is a gorgeous Melbourne cafe located on Albert Road in South Melbourne.

The vivid ‘old vs new’, black and white exterior screams attention and for good reason. The Kettle Black is the perfect breakfast location for anyone wanting to experience the heart and soul of Melbourne culture.

I headed into the packed cafe for lunch last week with my husband. The staff are hip (and friendly) and the food is simple, but spot on.

Perfect presentation, quality and freshness you’d expect for the prices and totally delicious.

I had the Crayfish Ash Roll and cannot wait to head back for another.

The coffee is as smick as the eats and the service is fast. Super-fast!

We were in and out within our 30 minute parking time limit, but still felt like we had the perfect lunch experience.


So do like the locals, and try The Kettle Black asap!
