Newly opened Baby Coffee Co. in Waterloo is really capitalising on current trend — luxe junk food that is ready for a close up, strong branding with personality and an industrial design with splashes of neon and pastel.
A hybrid venue, it's licensed and has a tight wine list, bottomless mimosas for brunch and a cheeky cocktail list with the likes of a 'Flick The Bean' made with rum, espresso, Falernum and lemonade. While a 'bacon' and egg roll gets junkified with pork belly, two fried eggs, capsicum jam and aioli. We're pretty keen on its espresso panna cotta for breakfast and cacio e pepe fries. It's also opening for dinner, with an Italian-leanings menu.
Pale pink is the prominent colour with some plashes of blue and lush textures and attention to detail giving it a slick edge.
