The suburb of Fitzroy has, somehow, become the coffee center the entire continent of Australia! Cafes in Fitzroy have gained national (and even international) recognition for carving out their own unique cultural niche. Known for being filled with hipsters and MacBook Millennials today, Fitzroy’s café history goes back centuries!
However, it was throughout the 1950s to present-day that a continuous influx of immigrants from countries like Italy and France brought an espresso café culture to Fitzroy that has laid the foundation for the beautiful suburb’s coffee fame today.
There are numerous publications written about walking tours through the avenues and cafes of Fitzroy, trying to catch the local vibe of each individual establishment! Taking a stroll down Brunswick street will bring a sensory overload of different culinary options. Locals obviously know every wonderful secret about their cozy, vibrant suburb, but for anyone visiting, Brunswick is a good place to start! There are major retail chains and wonderful night life clubs along the boulevard. You can party and have a night on the town, knowing Fitzroy’s wonderful cafes will provide a relaxing morning from all the fun!
Aside from its nationally recognized coffee scene, Fitzroy is kind of the “Santa Cruz” of Australia! It has that highly creative, almost bohemian flavor that brings out vibrant local music and street art. The feel of the streets as you walk down feel more like an art piece than a cement sidewalk. Imagine viewing these INCREDIBLE murals while walking to and from your favorite local Fitzroy café – what a wonderfully refreshing sight to see such intricate art draping the buildings of Fitzroy. Sipping on a hot mocha latte while taking in these incredible installations reminds us of the boundless creative energy that runs through Fitzroy. Since Fitzroy’s cafes are a common gathering spot for locals (especially ages 18-44), we all love to vibe off this positive energy, inspired to pursue our own work.
Cafes in Fitzroy range from open-air lodges to modern architectural designs to an industrial-type presentation. They all have wonderful lighting from the Aussie sun, giving that classic “in the shade but enjoying the sunshine” bright color filter/brightness. The atmosphere is perfectly fitting in many cafes for breakfast, brunch of, lunch, and even early dinners! The seating and dress is casual, suiting the breezy, informal, comfortable atmosphere effortlessly.
Because of the incredible diversity of residents in Melbourne, Fitzroy cafes serve cultural dishes from around the world, including Swedish, Italian, Russian, Chinese, Vietnamese, Canadian, French, around, of course, traditional Australian. These incredible ranges of food mean that you could go to a different café in Fitzroy each day of the week and have cuisines that originated thousands of miles apart from one another. One day you could get an Aussie meat pie; the next day could be an incredible hand-made Italian pizza! Then, maybe you round off the weekend with Montreal’s famous wood-fired bagels. These delectably prepared, international dishes are the final trait that separates the cafes in Fitzroy from the rest of the country – distinct, diverse cuisines and coffee at their finest.
After visiting the cafes around Fitzroy, do not forget to hit some of the best bars and clubs at night! Located in the same areas as Fitzroy’s famed espressos, places like the Everleigh, the Night Cat, and Mr. Wow’s Emporium all provide different nighttime experiences. When discussing all the wonderful cafes and street art, we feel it only makes sense to mention the nighttime activities, too!
