Despite being located in an alleyway in a brick building with all things industrial, Manchester Press is a homely, cozy cafe. Lots of people were already lounging or having a cuppa when we arrived, which was a change from our dinner yesterday. The laid-back ambience of the cafe made me feel right at home, and we were greeted by friendly staff and served drinks of our choice quite promptly.
I had the chai latte (4), which was a bit of a disappointment even with the self-serve honey, but Jo's latte (3.5) had awesome latte art! We split two bagel plates - one with smoked salmon and a salad on the side, and the other the fruit bagel with mixed berries in marscapone and pistachio. The smoked salmon bagel wasn't anything out of the ordinary, but I did like the latter. The whole mound that topped off the raisin (?) bagel was delicious - not too sweet, not too heavy, and berry-ful! I loved it, but there was a bit too much marscapone, though no real complaints! The bagel was the perfect chewiness, and I liked it better than the sesame one with the smoked salmon. Without further ado, here begins the Melbourne fooding pics!
