Piadina Slowfood information
Piadina fever took hold in Melbourne a few years back and still simmers away at this small, stealthily sited café. They make their own version of the Romagnan flat bread in house and fold them up with all manner of cleverly concocted combinations. A provolone and roast tomato one beats a regular breakfast toastie hands down (note that they open at 6am); at lunch, the meatball filling is a treat. They also do stews, curries and hearty bakes. Service doesn’t take its cue from the titles: it’s swift but the atmosphere cruises. There’s often Studio One or Fat Freddy tunes in the air and the clientele tends towards the creative.
