Cargo Restaurant/Cafe Docklands
Found myself in unfamiliar territory today at coffee time .. down at docklands Melbourne.
Its a bit quiet in the mornings down there and I wasn’t sure how it would play out until I saw a group come out of Cargo Restaurant and Cafe - https://cargorestaurant.com.au .. with takeaways.. It was enough for me to give it a try, void of a visible alternative.
The place is right on the water so as a restaurant it is on point for location. Although as a morning vibe its more ‘nearby apartment residence breakfast spot’ than ‘give me my coffee you ’my local’ you. Still, sitting there waiting for my coffee I settled into a beachy hipster type vibe that became appealing. It’s a great view and the staff are totally into a coffee shop persona for the morning.
A few minutes of water staring, dreaming of boat trips, and out comes my coffee, what an unexpected cracker... bold with a lingering taste and a strength that gets the engine started in the morning ..
Thanks for the unexpected suprise. While not a location I expect to find myself coffee hunting regularly it is definitely a yes from me.
