Named after a resilient but completely unremarkable variety of fish, there's nothing standard about this Seddon cafe. Common Galaxia is an airy, contemporary space that pairs wooden accents beside stark, exposed cinderblock walls. The all-day seasonal menu changes regularly to offer visitors the freshest possible flavours. To name just a few highlights, the toasted Reuben sandwich on rye with pastrami is a low-key favourite, while avocado served with ruby grapefruit and marinated goat cheese puts a new spin on a Melbourne cafe classic. Meanwhile, Common Galaxia's coffee is some of the best in the west, with Seven Seed's Golden Gate blend available, plus a range of milkshakes, smoothies and cocktails.
