Down a quaint and quiet street in Parkville, sits Cafe Piccolina, a Melbourne cafe which has become truly embedded in the friendly community of Parkville, just north of Melbourne city. This cafe is one of the best cafes in Melbourne, and boasts hearty and delicious food, fantastic coffee, and a warm and inviting space where customers quickly become friends.
Located mere minutes from the Royal Children's Hospital in North Melbourne, and a street away from the stunning Royal Park, this Parkville Cafe is run by Alex, a long-time local (and previous bar-tender from Naughtons Pub). These long-time connections that Alex shares with local residents have made this space a true community place, and Cafe Piccolina showcases what Melbourne's small businesses have the capacity to be; a place where customers can take a breather from their busy Melbourne days, and enjoy the best coffee on offer in Parkville and North Melbourne.
From the moment you walk past its' dusty-pink facade (the building dates back to the 1800s!), you're welcomed into one of the best cafes in this wonderful city. With a delicious menu of classic brunch meals done with pride and a team of great staff, Cafe Piccolina is the perfect place to slow down on your Saturday morning, or to grab a midweek lunch and coffee. With dining options both inside and outside on the quiet inner city tree-lined street, this cafe is both kid-friendly and dog-friendly.
The rotational food menu is hearty and inviting, and designed to do the classics well. Alongside your cafe staples (such as poached eggs), they have delicious specials which highlight the brunch scene that Melbourne has become renowned for.
The coffee menu showcases some of the best coffee in Melbourne, courtesy of local coffee roasters, Rumble Coffee. The house blend is Rumble Coffee's Shadow Boxer blend. With rich and delicious notes of dark chocolate, raspberry and toffee, this blend is a crowd favourite amongst coffee lovers. Single origin coffee aficionados aren't forgotten either, with a great rotating single origin coffee menu, for both espresso and filter coffee. There's always a delicious option for batch brew, and for single origin espresso coffees. The staff at Cafe Piccolina have honed their craft well, and make delicious coffee every single time.
Here you'll find an extensive range of single origin coffee beans on the retail shelves, ready for you to take home, and a friendly and warm team who are passionate about hospitality.
