Schibello Coffee. 117 Burwood Rd Burwood. It doesn’t get much more authentic than this. Amazing, delicate pastries, a comfortable, well-apointed interior, and the kitchen dominated by a pizza oven. Open for dinner only on Fridays, Saturdays and Sundays, there are pizza slices and other delicacies on sale the rest of the week.
The decaf is pre-ground, and the coffee is served thick and hot – really hot, giving me a chance to try the complimentary biscotti that comes with each cup. Overall, not the best cup I’ve had (decaf doesn’t appear to be their focus), but rather this appears to be a worthy venue for a lunch or dinner.
