Superfino, Melbourne

If small is the new big, then Superfino is quite large. By which I mean it's quite small... and cosy... and ever so groovy. It's a strong contender for the "Quirkiest CD Collection" award. Unless they ripped this stuff off vinyl and went straight to the iPod? Maybe I need a "Quirkiest Playlist" award instead? CDs are soooo last year.

You will find this place on Flinders Lane, between Swanston and Elizabeth, right next door to the lane with the beam-me-up-scotty "sculpture".

They do a very nice line of toast, including Dench Bakers sourdough or multigrain. You can have spreads on your toast, or maybe avocado/salmon and fresh lime. They also do a tasty serve of beans on toast with goats' cheese (nice soft beans in various shapes and sizes). And the Genovese coffee is great.


I will, however, have to reserve judgment on the eggs. The menu lists two versions of free range scrambled egg ciabatta: one with asparagus, parsley, parmesan and spinach; the other with smoked salmon, goat's cheese, lemon and spinach. But both were "unavailable" for some mysterious reason (none given).

[score pending due to unavailability of eggs]

Will have to check this place out next time I need brekky in the city - I usually just go down Degraves but the overcooked cheese & mushroom omlette is getting old...

im surprised that you had average service there, the owner (maurice) has a knack for making everyone feel like an old friend. today he lent me his copy of the cook's companion today because he noticed i was looking through it over lunch for a turkey recipe.

and in any case superfinos rarely has suits, the clientele is mostly designers and shoppers.

You can definitely see your expertise within the paintings you write. The world hopes for more passionate writers like you who are not afraid to mention how they believe. All the time go after your heart. Eminem is an American rapper and one of the most successful artists in hip-hop. As of 2020, Eminem net worth is now estimated to be $230 million.
