Italian’s Culture’s Influence on the Fitzroy Suburb: Incredible Cuisine, Better Coffee

Although most of Melbourne’s Italian population can naturally be found in Little Italy, Italian families live all over the region – including in Fitzroy. Woodfired pizzas and rich tomato sauce aromas can be found through Brunswick and Gertrude Streets, with highly rated Italian restaurants and cafes populating the entire Fitzroy locale. While we go into the history of Italian-Australian people here, we thought we take some time in this writing to address an amazing fact: ITALIANS BROUGHT COFFEE TO AUSTRALIA! Every time you pass your favorite local coffee shop, please say thanks to your Italian neighbors. They are responsible for all that frothy, creamy, perfect Italian coffee!

Food critics regularly list Fitzroy/Melbourne’s coffee as among the best in the world! Italian immigrants brought their passion for coffee and nourishing food to us Aussies, with cafes and Italian establishments now lining entire blocks in Fitzroy. In fact, historian Andrew May has remarked that, "The introduction of espresso coffee… is nostalgically remembered by many as a key watershed between a drab past and a cosmopolitan present.” In other words, Italy’s introduction of coffee to the Melbourne and Fitzroy neighborhoods is literally seen as a watershed moment in Australian history. It is that big a deal! If you start your morning with your favorite Italian café in Fitzroy, please remember these contributions as you place the order! It’ll enrich the experience.
