A Minor Place

An unassuming cafe with some of the best haloumi in the north.

The nicest thing about A Minor Place is its location off the main drag. Sitting unassumingly on Albion Street, in what seems like just another cute Brunswick weatherboard house, the cafe is quiet in its surroundings but busy inside — filled with coffee and brunch seekers.

Behind the espresso machine, you'll find baristas whipping up flat whites with coffee from Fitzroy-based roastery Industry Beans, while the drinks menu also covers kombucha, organic juices, smoothies, "thicc" shakes and the "fun stuff" — think espresso martinis and bloody marys. As well as the best fried haloumi you're likely to find on the northside, A Minor Place is responsible for a pretty bumper smashed avo ($16.5, plus $3 to add some of that haloumi), a sunny outside deck, and a comfy indoors that's just like being in your own house.

As a bonus, with free wifi, plenty of power points and caffeine at your fingertips, this cafe is a pretty good spot for students and freelancers to take their laptops for a productive day of getting things done.
