Grab brunch at this Commonwealth St institution to learn why PCP was named the Good Food Guide’s Cafe of the Year
in 2017. Occupying the light-filled atrium of an elegant Art Deco building, PCP serves the suburb’s best speciality coffee as well as a mouth-watering menu to match, including fried chicken waffles, miso ramen and creole jambalaya. There’s also a second location in Los Angeles for those seeking decent coffee in La La Land.

PCP’s sister cafe on nearby Albion St occupies a similarly stylish industrial-chic space, which is filled with the aroma of coffee being roasted upstairs. This boutique micro-roastery opened in 2012 and Rueben Hills showcases its expertise in the downstairs cafe, brewing coffee sourced directly from farmers around the world. The menu is inspired by these coffee origin trips, and features a distinctly Latin American flavour — think huevos divorciados, Mex meatballs, and Honduran Baleada.
