Remedy Coffee is a sweet coffee space in the central city. It’s had something of a backpacker/university student vibe the few times I’ve been in: a book exchange lines one of the walls, there are board games and mismatched vintage furniture to choose between, it’s staffed by friendly young people.
Remedy’s coffee is reviving and strong (medicinal, as the name suggests) and their food menu is short, but here’s something they can make vegans for breakfast: home-made muesli served with fresh fruit and almond milk. The muesli is quinoa, seeds (flax, chia, pumpkin, sunflower) & buckwheat. Simple and tasty.
Remedy Coffee is at 1 Wellesley St West, across the road from the Civic Theatre. It’s open every day – weekdays 6.30-5pm, Saturday 8.30-4pm, and Sunday 8.30-2pm.
