With my special orange parcel all the way from Luxembourg in hand, I went to meet Ash (or ashie, if you’re my mother)
This little Mr had been waiting patiently for a very special gift from a very orange shop… you may know? Hermes?? They had run out of stock of a particularly gorgeous scarf (or tie if you’re from Lucky coq), and as a result ordered it from Luxembourg to be preciously hand delivered via Germany and Qatar- a well travelled little tie. Scarf.
We ventured down to his local- ‘Dead man espresso’ and enjoyed the sun, company and some quality melbourne service and food.
What I should’ve done is ordered a coffee to taste this special dead man blend from seven seeds, but instead I very unsurprisingly ordered a Chai latte (soy ofcourse)…. I just can’t help myself. Its either that or an ICED chai latte…no icecream, just plently of ice and chilled – seriously amazing sh*t.
We both decided on toasties – and I must say, dunno if Ash agrees or not, I chose very quickly! I normally take so long, the waiters will try to order for me….awkward.
Ash ordered an eggy bacony lovely number.
And I was craving some smoked salmon, so I went with that:
The bread was fresh and smelt amaaaazing, lightly crusty exterior and soft and bouncy interior, fresh smoked salmon, spanish onion, mint and cream cheese.
Life is pretty sweet when you’re sitting in the semi sun, enjoying a gold ol’ catch up and taking it down the slow lane.
Dead Man espresso, is off busy Clarendon street, on a very quiet corner. This foodie’s sanctuary is exactly what the doctor ordered for a lazy sunday brunch or even a quick coffee on the go. Its buzzing with energy, happy satisfied tummies and the aroma of fresh beans linger softly against the humming of conversation.
