Marvellous Mitte

I’m heading off on holidays to Europe for a few weeks.  I can’t wait to catch up with family in Ireland, friends in London and put in some serious pasta and gelati eating time in Italy.  It’s not that long a trip so I can’t really claim I’ll get homesick for Melbourne, but if I do start thinking of home the sort of place I’ll be thinking about is Mitte.

Mitte is a local’s cafe in the back streets of North Fitzroy.  It’s a tiny space inside with tables and chairs crammed in cheek by jowl.  But if the weather’s good tables also line the footpath allowing for some prime North Fitzroy people watching.

I always order from the breakfast menu (it runs all day).  The omelettes come served in their own mini fry pan.  Super cute and super tasty when it’s the chorizo omelette ($15) topped with a “salad” of basil, tomato and buffalo mozzarella.

And if you want dessert for breakfast then all you have to do is order the breakfast crumble ($9.50).  The only thing that makes this combination of sweet slow cooked apple and pear in any way breakfast related is the granola that serves as a topping.  I can’t say I’m complaining though.

  1. Love the idea of breakfast crumble. And breakfast cake. And breakfast pav! Breakfast everything!

  2. I would try that granola with fruits anytime! The omelette looks huge for one person but is appealing, nonetheless :). Thanks for sharing!
