The Queensberry Street Pour House - Carlton, Victoria




cafe latte with h/made nut milk (almond + macadamia) and honey


smashed eggs + toast + h/made zucchini relish $9.50



Verdict? Cute corner oasis with delightful coffee, deliciously smashed eggs and friendly staff. You get the feeling that time moves differently here - there's no urgency, there's no rushing... and I'm quite OK with that.

Revisit verdictIt's been over 18 months since our last visit to Dong Ba, and I had a craving for Bún Bò Huê after watching an episode of Parts Unknown. My first taste of the dish certainly didn't disappoint, and I'm super keen to try out other versions in our local area to compare!
