Mise en Bean and the love of his life were wondering where to go for breakfast last weekend. After a bit of list checking and menu reading we agreed upon Lucy Lockett - a suburban coffee chamber in Brunswick.
With sunshine, running tops and a hunger like no other the great big windows and freshly ground smells waved us in to meet Lucy.
Long communal tables to the left and right and small tables further down the end. Lucy’s front end is brightly lit and has a lot of open white space - this is amplified by the ‘cool’ tiled communal table. Further down the cafe isn’t as bright BUT this does allow for a different experience.
The staff were all friendly and not over the top. Attentive, helpful and more than willing to modify meals (when possible) to suit dietary needs and requirements. You could sit here for a while and relax and wander away with your own thoughts without being interrupted, conversely, you could immediately get someone’s attention and they’d be over to see you.

This was a thick and sticky caramel. The crema colour looked like love when contrasted with the white ceramic cup and tasted like a hug from someone special. Using more technical terms…it had a mellow sweet acidity and a syrup like caramelliness (yes I know that caramelliness is not a real word)!
The soon to be Mrs. Mise en bean got the bircher museli with chai poached pears. It tasted as good as it looked my friends and the nuts were quite a nice addition.
And because I am who I am I ordered the braised mushrooms but lost the toast and got avocado and a poached egg. The mushrooms were beautiful (and this is coming from someone who loves mushrooms), braised nicely with a bit parsley and spice. This is also my second time at photographing mushrooms and can I just say…it is hard to make cooked mushrooms look good in a picture. Apologies!
They have a selection of freshly made juices, all day breakfast, grilled toasties AND lunch. Plenty of space to sit in and some to sit out, Lucy Lockett is going to go bananas in the warmer weather.
