Melrose gets an Australian cafe (w/ cake lollipops!)
When someone says Australian, you probably think kangaroos. Or boomerangs. Or six federated colonies that run on a stable liberal democratic political system that functions as a federal parliamentary democracy and constitutional monarchy. But when someone says Australian cafe, you'll probably start thinking Coffee + Food, now open in Hancock Park
From an Aussie chick and her craft-servicing friend, C+F's a Patrick Rafter-approved caffeine-ery plucked out of our own rural Outback: there's old Midwest barnwood, rusted window panes, and a wall of recycled knick-knacks (oxidized mixing bowls, dated film cameras) that you'll peruse while they whip up, um, coffee + food. Speaking of which..
