Flavours of late harvest grapes and brandied fruits
Tucked beneath a renovated office building in Gladstone Street, South Melbourne sits Jimmy The Saint, a cafe feeding and caffeinating business folk and locals.
Built with old-fashioned style, the cafe is decked-out with all the appropriate trimmings, from the vintage petrol pump in the corner and stools made from old drums of Mansion Wax Polish to the refurbished ceiling lamps made from those once used to peer under car hoods. There’s even a mini Michelin man to top things off.
The menu is simple yet thoughtful and offers breakfast and lunch fare to devour alongside juice or coffee (St. Ali). Choose from eggs with soldiers, ricotta pancakes with fruit labne and mascarpone, or a trio of arancini with napoli and parmesan. Good luck trying to leave without a piece of homemade slice or a lolly bag.
