Gypsy Hideout in Northcote

Gypsy Hideout in Northcote

| On 12, Dec 2014

Gypsy Hideout is quite literally a hide-away situated on the corner of High St and Westgarth St in Northcote.

The menu did not inspire me much—a moderate selection for breakfast with mainly sandwiches and focaccias for lunch. There is, however, one item worth going for again and again.

The butter-thyme field mushrooms with scrambled eggs and sumac is a dish so decadent you can only have it once a week.

Gypsy Hideout has a simple décor with wooden benches and a cosy outdoor dining area. Unfortunately there is no shade outside making outdoor dining hard in weather above thirty degrees.

This Café has its own blend of coffee roasted by Reverence in Ascot Vale. The coffee has a unique flavour. Any coffee that doesn’t require sugar is a damn good coffee in my books.

Service was prompt (albeit there were not many people in the Cafe) and the waiter that served us was very friendly. The manager, however, was unpleasant and cold.

I have mixed feelings about the place. I think you should:

Go to Gypsy Hideout for the Butter-Thyme Field Mushrooms, a beautiful cup of coffee and the convenience.

Don’t go to Gypsy Hideout if you’re looking for menu variety and cheap prices.

Go here for one dish and a good coffee, don't go here for variety and value for money.
