Albion is a hidden gem!! Quiet streets with lovely weatherboard houses. Big improvements to Perth street lately and a fantastic new cafe (Saddie Black) opening up - awesome coffee and food by the way, really worth the check out... it's Brunswick good ;) oh - i almost forgot the train station - walking distance and only 15 mins into the CBD!! Winning
There is currently only one place you can get a proper coffee in Albion: that is at Mitko Deli on Perth Avenue and they make a pretty good one. However, they are only open during during the day Tues-Fri and on Saturdays till 1:30pm. If you want a coffee outside of those times you have to go to Sunshine, only a kilometre or so away: try Cafe Ancheto or The Granary.
Sadie Black for the best coffee and bruch/lunch in the area. Only a few door down from Mitko Deli on Perth Avenue. Sadie Black is always popular, busy and sees the largest volume of customers in the street.
Agreed, I would either go to Mitko Deli or head into Sunshine to the Granary or there's a new Mecca Cafe on Devonshire. I'm still a bit undecided about the Mecca Cafe, it depends on which barista is working that day, but overall it's a really nice cafe with nice furnishings and food options.
