It is always tempting to declare this joint, or the other joint, as one's favourite cafe ever! Evah is a long time, and encompasses many sins. However, I do enjoy 'Il Fornaio' which is on Acland near its intersection with Fitzroy.
My friend, Di, is not a coffee drinker, but instead is a gym-junkie. So, we have an agreement, that when she is slogging it out on the mats, I go down to MY cafe and have a delicious flat white together with a plain croissant, whilst skimming The Age.
