Melbourne CBD breakfasts just stepped up a notch with the latest opening of Rustica Canteen in Guildford lane. Setting up shop in the space that was formerly Utopian Slumps, their modern, warehouse space feels crisp, fresh and clean.
All of the sourdough loaves are delivered from their Fitzroy bakery, Rustica Sourdough each morning and just like their sister store, their space is part bakery, part dining area, part “I’ll start my diet tomorrow” area. We’ll bet you won’t be able to say no to dessert when you see their pastry display – some of the ones we drooled over include lime & coconut croissants, choc and peanut butter croissants and salted caramel choux bombs,
Their breakfast menu is filled with all sorts of mouth watering dishes. We tried the filled croissant with chilli scramble, jamon serrano and manchego cheese, and also the breakfast burger. Both delicious and satisfying!
With Short Stop Coffee and Donuts, Krimper and Raw Trader just around the corner, Rustica are up against some tough competition. But we think it’s well worth the visit! We can’t wait to try their lunch menu.
Where: 33 Guildford Lane, Melbourne 3000
