Pellegrini’s Espresso Bar

Whenever you hear someone talk about Pellegrini’s Espresso Bar, they will invariable use the words ‘Melbourne institution’ in the same breath. And quite rightly so.

This little Italian cafe has been doing its thing for over 50 years, and it’s obvious. You don’t come here for the coffee so much as the atmosphere — the staff are friendly, if a little brusque at times, and the place is littered with tatty framed pictures of who-knows-what. Stepping into Pellegrini’s really does feel like stepping into a little slice of Italy on Bourke Street.

There are no set prices for the food, but main meals generally hover around the $15 mark. I thoroughly recommend stopping by for a late-night coffee in the front checkered-floor diner. Caps off a night very nicely.
