I’ve enjoyed coffees and food at Wild Timor on Sydney Rd in Coburg, and they recently opened another cafe in Carlton as part of the new Kathleen Syme library on the corner of Cardigan and Faraday streets. I lunched there with a friend during the week and loved their coffee. It’s seriously one of the best around the inner north.
I also enjoyed my haloumi burger with ajvar (capsicum relish), avocado and cabbage. The avocado was very fresh, a sign of a good cafe kitchen. My friend was not as impressed with her smoked salmon bagel, which she thought a little dry, though the bagel itself was nicely toasted (I had a bite). We shared a slice of lemon and coconut cake.
I get the feeling there’s a lot happening in Carlton at the moment. It’s so nearby yet I’m a haphazard visitor. I’d ridden past many times but, until my friend invited me, I had not realised the cafe was Wild Timor. I’m sure I will return.
