Elizabeth’s Boutique Cafe, Glebe

Elizabeth's boutique cafe, Glebe

Five senses coffee. 175 Glebe Point Rd. With a rustic interior: tiles and tabletops in maroon, walls in yellow and blue, this place still manages to maintain a sense of the present day. A small courtyard out the back provides some solace from Glebe Point Rd, and there’s a high chair and changing facilities if you have a small child with you.

Coffee is roasted for elizabeth’s by five senses coffee in Melbourne, and they’re running three grinders – one for decaf, one for the house blend, and one for an Ethiopian Harrar.

The decaf is really good: sweet and earthy, with some notes of cream. Not the cheapest place in Glebe, but one that shows commitment to quality in food and drink alike.

  2. Wow! It must be odd to see it look (presumably) so different!

    I lived in Glebe briefly in 1997: it’s hard to keep up with how much it has changed over the years, and yet there are the staples like Badde Manors and Well Connected that have been around the whole time.

    It’s encouraging to see some really good food available in places.

  3. a surprise mothers’ day brunch here already has me thinking of who else to introduce to this cafe. I’m also putting it on my list of eating out places when we get to spoil ourselves with breakfast/brunch out.

    lovely food, lovely atmosphere and friendly staff.

  4. Yes – very different. Volume is king in a small cafe and we managed to (comfortably) squeeze 80 people downstairs in the front and the rear courtyard. Looks like they barely fit half that now, making the business much more challenging…
