144 Wingrove St, Fairfield
Beautiful dark wood and school room-style chairs, exposed brick walls, lighting with an industrial/pirate rope edge, and bright green ferns dangling from the ceiling. Add an amazing menu and a long chatter session with a good friend, and you’ve got yourself the perfect Saturday morning breakfast date.
Tucked away in a quiet, nondescript spot near the train line in Fairfield with his bowler hat and beard, Mr Wednesday is a shining example of hipster cafe done right. For a start, the space itself is gorgeous; I fell absolutely in love with it as soon as I walked in – even the bathroom wall paper was perfect! I also fell head over heels for the perfect pot my tea came in (guys, if you have a spare one, I would love to buy it from you!)…
The menu was brilliant (you’d expect no less with Mr Wednesday’s chef originally hailing from Industry Beans), with a lot of options that were pretty hard to narrow down. Sweet pumpkin toast, a very fancy smashed avo with whipped beetroot & goats curd, some good looking burgers (breakfast brisket, anyone?!), and numerous egg options… but as soon as I saw it listed, I knew I wanted the vanilla coconut chia pudding. It was rich and creamy with the most phenomenal nut & seed praline crumbled over the top – would have loved a little more of that.
It was only on the way out we saw the sweets stand, too, which looked verryyy inviting (were I heading straight home instead of a doctors appointment, I’d have bought some for later), and plenty of tea, coffee and fruit smoothie options to go with all of the great food, if you need any more convincing.
