Manchester Press (Melbourne CBD, VIC)

Our first breakfast spot was the ever so popular Manchester Press, located in an alleyway (of course) in an old warehouse.  So begins our exploration of the alleyways of Melbourne!

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!
