Located in a narrow street surrounded by graffitied warehouses, you will find a hidden gem that is St ALi’s. This cafe is super serious about their coffee - an entire page of their menu is dedicated to explain the different types and blends on offer.
I had My first St ALi experience this arvo, having brunch celebrating Papa T’s birthday. I opted for a regular latte using their house blend, and shall i add, it was one incredibly smooth brew, so, sooo freakin’ good. Their menu is alot of fun, with every dish given a quirky name. I had the My Mexican Cousin - secret recipe corn fritters, baby spinach, haloumi and kasundi with poached eggs. The texture of the corn fritters was exceptional - remarkably crunchy on the outside and smooth on the inside. I thought it needed a little bit more kasundi (spicy indian tomato relish) as it was a little dry, but it still tasted great. Despite its secluded location, St ALi’s gets pretty busy so expect to wait for a table, especially on weekends. Service was excellent and I loved the edgy bohemian grungy decor. Happy days!
