Caffe Migliore Coffee. 156 Alma Rd, Padstow. Unless you’re quite familiar with Padstow, you’ll be unaware of a second group of shops, away from the train station, closer to the Padstow Heights part of the suburb. In this small batch of shops, a new building has emerged in the last year, and last week this cafe opened up, so I thought I’d have a look.
The fit-out is a beautiful one – lots of concealed lighting – the green lights in the photo above were blue on my first visit, so this is some kind of coloured LED lighting. The menu is cheaper than I was expecting – you can sit in with sourdough toast and a long black for $8, but they have a full kitchen at the back and will prepare eggs or more complicated fare, and there’s the expected sweet treats on offer as well.
I wasn’t sure what to expect with the coffee, but I’ve been enjoying it; it’s all ground to order, and my long black comes out with a healthy crema: a good sign indeed.
A welcome addition to the range of cafes in the area. Open 6am-5pm every day.
