Hyperlocal news about Melbourne's first suburb: Fitzroy 3065

lunch at 2 Bob on Queens Parade, North Fitzroy


This is the big breakfast at Two Bob cafe on Queens Parade North Fitzroy – toast, poached eggs, bacon, fried tomato, onion jam, wonderful pork and fennel sausages, mushrooms and a triangle of what they call rosti. Normally rosti is made with grated potato but this was a surprisingly light concoction, like the lightest fluffiest polenta, and was made with mashed potato.

The coffee is very good, or at least it is exactly as I like it: strong. The space is airy and relaxing, the welcome from staff felt genuine and the service was good too. Cafe Jerk’s review is worth reading for its amusing aside on how cafes should (not) be named. Two Bob has been reviewed many times in the year it has been open and I won’t list them all here. In the slowly evolving Queens Parade strip, Two Bob may currently be the best cafe.
